Holiday insurance is not an add on says ABI

The ABI is warning holiday makers that travel insurance should not be treated as an add on to you holiday requirements; it is an essential part of your travel needs when planning any trip aboard.

Going on holiday abroad without financial protection would be a huge mistake especially when some in areas of Europe are not even covered by the European Health Insurance Card. The ABI is saying don’t take the risk!

Travel insurance is really important because if a family member was to fall ill or have an accident this type of insurance policy would safeguard you financially for treatment costs etc.

The fact is that over 10 per cent of holidaymakers travel abroad without travel insurance.
