Staying at home this year? Even UK holidays need protection.
Where are you going on holiday this year? If you are staying at home in the UK, then it’s still worth thinking about holiday insurance. It might not seem relevant to take out insurance in your home country, but a good cancellation policy could well save your bacon if, for some reason, you have to cancel or come home early.
You’ve got insurance. Why do you need more?
Okay. You’ve got breakdown cover that will get you home if your car breaks down, so you don’t need to worry about that. And you will always receive free healthcare in the UK. We are lucky we don’t have to worry about that. On top of that, the UK is a pretty safe place to travel. We don’t have many creepy crawlies or dangers lurking in our waters. So why should we think about insurance for our holidays?
It’s very simple. Every time you make any sort of holiday booking you are entering into a contract – even if all you have done is pay a deposit. That means you may be liable for the full cost of your holiday if you cannot travel. At the very least you could lose your deposit if you are forced to cancel with enough notice, but if you have to abandon your plans say, one or two days before leaving, the chances are you’ll lose the lot.
What could possibly go wrong?
We all have responsibilities and there are many reasons why you might have to cancel a holiday. You may get called up for jury duty or a relative may become ill. You may be made redundant or become ill yourself. What would you do then? Likewise, key members of your team at work aren’t immune to illness. What would happen if you were called back to the office suddenly?
Things could also happen when you are away to ruin your trip, such as your holiday cottage suddenly becoming uninhabitable or beaches where you are staying being closed. Then there’s the prospect of something happening at home that means you have to get back in a hurry: flooding, fires, emergencies. You just never know.
Relax, Guest First have it covered.
