06 August 2009 07:17
Brits looking for a last minute holiday to escape the dreary UK weather could find that going online to find a break saves them time, money and effort.
Not getting travel insurance may save people money in the short term, but should an incident occur on a holiday, Brits may find they have to make a large dent in their getaway budget to cover the costs.
According to marketing director at hotel booking service OrangeSmile.com Egor Bondarev, people who go online to book their holidays could find they can take advantage of cheaper rates and a wider choice.
On top of this, using the internet could be a more relaxing way to book a getaway, as there "is no need to make fast decisions, as is often the case in travel shops".
To try and ensure that a holiday is as relaxing as possible, Brits may want to put their mind at ease by making sure their holiday insurance policy is valid and up-to-date before they jet off.
