No one books a holiday expecting to have to cancel at the last minute, but of course we never know what is waiting round the corner, do we?
There are many reasons why you may need to cancel your trip. A few examples are: you or a close relative fall ill and are unable to travel, you may be called up for jury service and are unable to be released from it, you are made redundant, or the Foreign Commonwealth Office advise against all travel to your holiday destination.
That is why it is always advisable to buy holiday cancellation insurance when you book your trip. It doesn’t matter if you are just renting a cottage in the Lake District, Cruising the Med, or jetting off to the USA, if you suddenly had to cancel your trip you would lose money.

With the introduction of cheaper air travel, and budget priced cruises, the world is rapidly shrinking, and what were once considered far off and distant places are now within easy reach, both in terms of travelling time and the cost of getting there.
Today’s budget conscious travellers are always looking for cheap travel insurance; however, low premiums should not mean inadequate cover and it is important to make sure that you are buying a policy that will protect you for the type of holiday or trip that you are going on.
If you are going to lie in the sun for two weeks, you will not necessarily require the same levels of cover as someone who is thinking of bungee jumping, or white water rafting.
Similarly if you are backpacking around Australia or the Far East, you will require less cancellation cover than someone who has booked an expensive cruise.
Not all travel insurance policies are the same, so it is important that you take time to read the small print so that you know what is, and what isn’t covered by the policy you are thinking of buying. Small print is a pain, we appreciate that, but unfortunately we cannot get rid of it, but a few minutes scrutinising the cover before you buy, could save you financial hardship and worry later on.
Here are some pointers to look out for when considering buying a worldwide travel insurance policy.
Once you have purchased your policy you will have 14 days in which to read it through and check that it covers your particular needs – however you should also ask yourself the following:
Have I declared any pre-existing medical conditions? Have I told the insurer about any hazardous (risky) activities that I am thinking of doing?

From 1st January 2021 rules around travel to Europe have changed, visit the Government website for up to date information on passports, EHIC, healthcare and more. We’ll update this page with more information as and when the Government release it.
