Travel insurance is insurance that is intended to cover medical expenses, sudden insolvencies of travel agencies, and other expenses associated with incurred travelling. The insurance package can either help the passenger within his/her own home country or countries outside of the UK.
There are plenty of insurance companies and the traveller can choose from several different service packages. If you as a passenger decide to pick one service you would be advised to read the policy and terms carefully. Also, it can be worthwhile to think about what coverage you need and will not need. Here we will give you some basic information about direct travel insurance, single trip travel insurance, and what happens if you experience a flight delay or cancellation on a trip.
The basic travel insurance policy includes medical coverage, which means that all medical cost for illness and accidents are covered. The good news is that no additional fee is required for your children: children are covered in their parents' policy. However: be aware that your insurance may set an maximum amount that it will refund for certain medical procedures. If in the country where the expenses are made charges for medical care are higher than what it would cost in the UK, you may not be able to get a full refund for these expenses.
When choosing holiday insurance, the traveller should consider whether it would only be needed for a single trip or whether several trips are likely to be made throughout the year. People who go abroad a couple of times a year may want to go for annual insurance. Single trip travel insurance is valid for a one-off trip up to 365 days. Annual multi trip insurance covers all trips the customer that will be taken within one year.
For the insurance company, it is important to know whether the trip will take place inside or outside of Europe. Furthermore, the price of the package can vary according to what type of activities will be included, for instance skiing or surfing.
The price of the insurance will also depend on the duration of the trip. The longer the trip, the higher the price. It is also possible to insure personal belongings, which will raise the price of the policy of course. Therefore, carefully consider whether this will be worth the investment, and also keep in mind that even if you policy covers personal belongings, you may not be able to get money back for stolen or misplaced items if you no longer have receipts of purchase for these items. You can also only choose other basic options, such as insurance for cancellations and curtailment coverage. Examples of trustworthy insurance companies are: Direct Travel Insurance and the Post Office's travel insurance.
Travel insurance companies aren't able to claim compensation from the airline for the time lost as a result of flight delays, cancellations or denied boarding. If the passenger wants to be compensated by the airline, he will need to follow a certain procedure. First of all, the passenger will need to submit a claim with the airline. It can take a lot of effort to receive money from an air carrier. Therefore, the customer may want to consider relegating the claim to a third party. Companies such as www.flight-delayed.co.uk help air passengers in their battle for compensation. The passenger has to pay a small fee and all the paper work is done for him.
