Yesterday, 4th January 2011, VAT went up from 17.5% to 20%. It means that everything, from petrol to pyjamas, will become just that little bit more expensive. The same goes for Insurance Premium Tax, in case you hadnâ€™t heard. Like VAT it has gone up from 17.5% to 20% for holiday and travel insurance premiums, which will be a blow to people hoping for a little low cost sunshine or snow this spring.
But not for World First Travel Insurance customers. World First have announced that they are waiving the increase and passing the savings back to you until the end of January.
