Price comparison crucial before booking travel insurance online

It is crucial that people take the time to carefully compare the different products available when booking a holiday or accompanying items such as travel insurance.

According to trivago, a user-driven portal for travel across Europe, a number of people do not realise the full range of offers that are available through the internet.

Sian Williams, UK country manager for the site, commented: "A lot of people just use one booking site or travel agency and they think they are getting the best offer.

"It is definitely the way forward," she added, suggesting that potential savings on things such as hotel accommodation could be as much as £100 just by comparing different offers online.

Ms Williams' comments came following publication of a trivago survey which estimated that 75 per cent of British people expect they will travel with a reduced holiday budget in 2009.ADNFCR-1320-ID-19013005-ADNFCR
