5 Reasons Why You Need To Get Travel Insurance

Why Do I Need Insurance For My Holiday

When going on holiday, travel insurance is probably the last thing you want to think about, but it’s important to make sure that it’s one of your top priorities, or it could end up costing you more than your bargained for. Here are 5 reasons why you should take out travel insurance for a holiday.


Sometimes unfortunate events can happen unexpectedly, and most likely, at the worst time. If you or anyone in your family or travelling party were to fall ill or experience an unfortunate change in situation that forces you to cancel your holiday, you need to be covered to be able to claim back money lost through no fault of your own.


From food poisoning to an infected mosquito bite, these things do unfortunately happen while you’re away and trying to relax and enjoy your holiday. If you or anyone in your family or travelling party does need hospital treatment while abroad, you would have to pay any expenses out of your own pocket. However, with the right travel insurance in place, this could fully cover any medical and repatriation costs.

Lost Documents & Theft

Losing or having your passport, tickets or other travel documents stolen, can bring a huge dampener on your holiday. Taking out travel insurance can cover the cost of replacing documents and make getting back home no problem. Travel insurance can also cover the cost of replacing any stolen or missing belongings such as luggage, mobile phones, cameras and iPods.

If, for some unforeseen reason, your holiday is cut short, travel insurance can cover the cost of any money you’ve spent on things you’ll miss out on. This can cover anything from planned activities, car rentals and hotel bookings.

Peace of mind

It’s easy to assume that these things won’t happen to you, or that you could save money by avoiding taking out travel insurance, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. A small fee now could save you thousands if anything did go wrong. Being prepared and fully covered will allow you to fully relax and enjoy your holiday.
