With medical costs rising for Brits abroad, travel insurance (also known as 'holiday insurance') has never been more important. Any accident or illness while overseas can leave you with a serious financial burden unless you come prepared. That's why we have compiled a comprehensive guide to travel insurance. Read on to ensure you're fully prepared before you hit the sea, sand and, of course, the slopes!


I'm going on holiday - why is travel insurance important? Did you know that suffering a hip fracture in the USA could cost you £22,531? Or that a heart attack in Spain will set you back £35,000? While you may consider yourself to be in good health there are always unexpected accidents waiting to happen. It's much better to be safe than sorry.

There are less than 60 countries that have reciprocal healthcare arrangements with the UK and the majority of these are based on emergency procedures. For example, if you needed to go to casualty in Australia (one of the countries that has an arrangement with the UK) you could still end up with a hefty bill - though your treatment may be 'free' your ride in the ambulance would not be. Meanwhile, the USA has NO arrangement with the UK meaning that falling ill 'across the pond' could put you on the fast track to bankruptcy.


However, it's not just about medical expenses. Travel insurance can also cover loss of luggage or other personal belongings such as passports and money, repatriation costs and cancelled or delayed flights. Also, damage that you may cause to third parties is also covered in many cases. With all these potential expenses, it's easy to see why a comprehensive travel insurance policy is highly recommended.


So how much does travel insurance cost?

Research undertaken by Alliance & Leicester has shown that UK holidaymakers pay £1.3bn more than they need to on travel insurance each year. This is despite the fact that travel insurance appears to be relatively cheap - normally around £25 for each week abroad. So how are we managing to overspend so excessively?

About 60% of us are taking the 'easy' option and using travel agents to obtain insurance at the same time as we book our holiday. In some cases travel insurance is promoted as a 'free' add-on with the package - but the reality is that you will be paying for it somewhere along the line.

The fact is that online travel companies have blown the holiday market wide open. Without the overheads of running high-street stores, online retailers can offer cheaper flights, hotels and car hire. This also applies to travel insurance.
