We’re all going on a …yes, it’s almost summer holiday time, and if you’ve booked your holiday already you should try and get covered as soon as possible in case there’s any hitch.
You can get single trip insurance, with the priced based on the length of the holiday as well as the destination and how many of you are going. You can also get annual multi-trip travel insurance, which usually covers for trips lasting less than 31 days. Or if you’re going for longer, best opt for the backpacker insurance.
The amount of cover can vary, but comparison website moneysupermarket.com recommends you need £2 million for medical expenses, £1 million for personal liability, £3,000 for cancellation (or however much your trips cost), £1,500 for lost or stolen baggage and £250 for cash.
