The term ‘staycation’ has become increasingly popular over the last few years, as more UK residents opt to pack up the car and head to the many wonderful tourist attractions that can be found in the United Kingdom. You may be one of them – but how often do you consider UK Travel Insurance for your trip?
You would be right in thinking that when holidaying in the UK, you are covered in the event of an accident, so won’t be stranded in Kingston-Upon-Thames with mounting medical bills should you encounter a mishap whilst on a weekend break. What you may not have considered however are the sort of things that can go wrong with a holiday no matter where you are.
Missed flights or ferries for example are just as likely with UK destinations as they are with overseas holidays. There is also the need to have cover in case you need to cancel your holiday and still need to pay for the hotel. Cover for stolen or lost luggage and personal possessions are also a common feature of UK travel insurance deals, but generally speaking the policies are more basic – and of course cheaper than travel insurance for trips abroad.
