Working holidays 'can improve skills'

Working holidays are a chance for people to improve their skills and are growing in popularity, it has been said.

According to a spokesperson from the National Trust for Scotland, such working breaks can appeal to people of all ages "with a desire to engage with the outdoors".

"Working holidays are very popular with people who like that outdoors experience," they said.

As well as Scotland, people could look into going to the US or another country for an activity holiday.

Before embarking on such an overseas break, Brits may find it wise to check out what kind of activities they may be going to get involved in.

This can help them choose the right level of travel insurance cover for their break and give themselves some protection against the financial cost of getting medical treatment should they need it.

Martin Rothwell, Senior Partner World First Travel Insurance, says:

When planning a working holiday, it's important to check that your travel insurance will cover the type of work you plan to do. Most travel insurance policies will not cover you for anything involving manual labour. Questions? You should contact the travel insurance specialists.
