Lovers warned to take out travel insurance

Travel insurance is a must for lovers taking a romantic break on and around Valentine's Day, according to one of the UK's largest insurers.
Couples who do not want their trip ruined by health issues or lost baggage have been encouraged to check the details of their insurance cover to ensure the break runs as smoothly as planned.
Medical costs can rack up quickly and the inconvenience of lost baggage can cause stress that should be reserved for popping the big question.
Mike Powell, a general insurance consultant at Defaqto, said: "By taking a few minutes to check your insurance cover, you can cover your losses from unforeseen problems and help ensure that you and your loved one have a Valentine's Day to remember, for all the best reasons."
A study last week revealed that one in four young Britons are failing to take out travel insurance when travelling overseas at great risk to their financial wellbeing.
