Have you taken out travel insurance for your stag weekend abroad? Over one million holidaymakers have chosen not to do so already this year, according to Sainsbury’s Finance.
It is suggested that British holiday makers are increasingly deciding to travel without insurance, regardless of the consequences if, for example, they were to fall ill before travelling.
Joanne Mallon, Travel Insurance Manager, Sainsbury’s Finance, said: “Anyone travelling abroad on holiday should ensure they have good quality insurance. It’s easy to forget to buy travel insurance during the excitement of booking your holiday, but cover that will provide assistance when abroad and for cancellations should you fall ill before your trip for example, really is as essential as your passport.”
Sainsbury’s are currently offering 10% off the cost of travel insurance for their customers in an attempt to increase holiday makers to take up the option of covering themselves before jetting off into the sunset.
