London, UK (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
There's always been something about Bournemouth; its long sandy beaches are positively Mediterranean in appearance and its thumping nightlife would put the Costa del Sol to shame. Therefore, it was no surprise last week when Bournemouth was voted the top travel destination within the UK. The popular town is even being dubbed Costa del Dorset and it is thought that last week's news will bring even more tourists to the area.
However, Patrick Chong of InsureMore is asking those thinking of taking a holiday in this part of England to remember to purchase their UK travel insurance policies. There are many reasons why UK travel insurance is important when considering a British break.
Just because people are holidaying closer to home, it doesn't mean that their trips are risk free.Tourists will often need to book just as many components on a UK holiday as they would on a foreign one, from transport and accommodation to transfers and attraction tickets. If anything goes wrong with their travel arrangements then they could also be left to foot the bill if they don't take out UK travel insurance before their travels.
With its own international airport, it is possible that many tourists will be flying into Bournemouth from another local airport. However, if they happen to find that their plane is delayed or that their flight is cancelled having UK travel insurance will cover any costs incurred as a result. Missing baggage is also a common problem that people often forget about when travelling through domestic airports and luggage is just as likely to be lost on a domestic flight as it is on an international one.
UK travel insurance is also important for tourists who fall ill whilst on holiday and find for whatever reason that they can't leave the accommodation. Taking out insurance before their trip will cover them for every day lost as a result of being housebound, or being unable to leave their holiday accommodation and discover all the delights that Dorset has to offer.
With seven miles of perfect sandy beach and a wide variety of theatres, shows and art galleries it's really no wonder that Bournemouth was voted the top travel destination in the UK. Lets just hope that a lack of UK travel insurance doesn't spoil many people's dream trip in the UK's holiday paradise.
