Travellers 'touring outside their comfort zone'

Travellers 'touring outside their comfort zone'

British travellers are becoming far more courageous and travelling outside of destinations that are in their comfort zone, according to the Association of Independent Tour Operators.

Derek Moore, chairman of the company, believes that as people have a specific reason to often travel to a destination, people are visiting places that in the past they wouldn't have gone to.

He said: "Britons are also more prepared to travel beyond their comfort zone today and see parts of the world which are not well known to tourists."

Travellers should remember that when they visit a destination, whether it be for film tourism or a specific adventure there is always a chance of a serious injury being picked up or an expensive possession becoming lost or damaged.

Therefore, travellers should always pick up travel insurance for their journey to cover the costs of any such occurrences.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has discovered that the average cost for treating a broken leg in America is £24,000, a cost that could be covered by a travel insurance policy.ADNFCR-1320-ID-18661909-ADNFCR
