Don't forget to take out travel insurance for your holiday
Large numbers of Brits with conditions like diabetes, asthma or epilepsy are putting themselves at physical and financial risk when they travel, new research has found. Nearly a third (30%) of people with pre-existing medical conditions remain unaware that they need to disclose their health issues when purchasing travel insurance, the study discovered.
Amid the hustle and bustle of holiday planning, acquiring travel insurance can often end up being dismissed as an afterthought, with more than a quarter (27%) admitting it is an activity they squeeze in when there is time. That leads to confusion about the small print of the policy, with 20% of travellers concerned that they might not be covered in the event of a claim despite buying travel insurance, according to research commissioned by PayingTooMuch.
More than a third (37%) of holidaymakers said they had been in a position of requiring health treatment abroad but had failed to take out a
medical travel insurance policy. Alarmingly, 15% of travellers have been or plan to go on holiday without any travel insurance.
