Four in five women take 'babymoons'
26 January 2009 08:08
A survey has discovered that four out of five pregnant women take "babymoons" overseas with their partners before giving birth.
The research, by Essential Travel, also discovered that many pregnant women have concerns over their travel insurance when going on holiday.
Fortunately for expectant mums, in most cases they are covered by their typical travel insurance premium.
Stuart Bensusan, sales director for the company, said: "With a few exceptions … pregnant women are perfectly fine and will be covered by a standard travel insurance policy.
"Expectant mums can relax and make the most of a much-needed break before the big day."
One exception to the rule is if mums-to-be expect to give birth within eight weeks after the start, or before the end of, their holiday. In such a case, specialist insurance may be required.
In other news, a leading travel expert recently advised holiday-makers that they can often find bargains by signing up to various internet newsletters.
