Do I need holiday insurance?

By Jon Vickery

Why book holiday insurance?Travel insurance may well be a dull and boring reality of travelling abroad, but how important is it?

Even if you are going on holiday for just a few days, travel insurance is extremely important. The last thing you need is to be stuck abroad with a huge bill and be unable to pay. And, if you are travelling with a baby, insurance is all the more vital, as all types of medical problems - from simple ailments to serious illness - can pose a problem.


"The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has outlined costs and risks that are associated with travelling without insurance that make alarming reading."

Travelling without insurance is a risky business. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has outlined costs and risks that are associated with travelling without insurance that make alarming reading. The cost of medical treatment abroad can run into the thousands. In addition, an air ambulance back to the UK could cost as much as £35-40,000 from Europe alone.

With travel insurance costs being so negligible in comparison, it makes little sense to head overseas unprotected. Booking holiday insurance with HolidayExtras.com means that, should the worst happen, you will be fully protected.
