78 percent no travel insurance despite Jubilee, Olympics and record temps significantly increasing UK travel
Tuesday 5, June 2012
Jubilee and Olympics significantly increase UK travel this year but a shocking 78 percent won’t invest in travel insurance reports EssentialTravel.co.uk.
The Queen’s Jubilee and The Olympics have contributed to a significant increase in travellers opting for UK breaks this year but a staggering 78% are neglecting to take out travel insurance reports leading travel extras provider, EssentialTravel.co.uk.
“Following reports today that temperatures will soar to an all time record temperatures of 101.3F within the next three weeks this seems even more likely.” Says spokesperson Stuart Bensusan.
“It may be that insurance is considered an unnecessary expense” explains Bensusan “but with 62% of Brits this year looking to spend between £500 and £2,000 on their holiday that could represent a costly mistake.”
Bensusan continues: “There is a ‘it will never happen to me’ ethos being courted by Brits currently.
“Whilst British holidaymakers will have access to the NHS they will still require cover for delay and cancellation, personal belongings, pre-paid excursions trips and unexpected strikes.
“With the cost of domestic holidays on the rise cancellation could end up being more expensive than a holiday abroad. We are urging all of our customers to invest in adequate travel protection. With policies starting from as little as five pounds it really isn’t worth taking the risk – even for UK breaks.”
Family Single Trip UK policy on Essentialtravel.co.uk starts from as little as £5.10 for 1 weeks cover. (Prices based on 2 Adults (age 18-45) and 2 children (age 1-16).
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
