There are a number of benefits to taking out travel insurance including:
– Baggage Cover
Most travel insurance packages will include cover for lost or delayed baggage. This means that you can claim on your travel insurance if your luggage is lost or delayed in transit.
– Health Cover
Health cover is perhaps the biggest benefit of taking out travel insurance. If you travel to a different country, it’s more than likely that you don’t have access to free healthcare. If you find yourself in bad health whilst traveling, taking out travel insurance can save you a lot of money on medical bills and give you peace of mind.
– Flight Cover
Some travel insurance packages will also offer cover for travel arrangements. If you are unable to fly due to illness or the travel company cancel your holiday, your travel insurance may be able to cover the costs.
It’s really easy to find cheap travel insurance deals, and in my opinion, the benefits far outweigh the costs.
