Some 19 per cent of people were looking to book their main 2011 holiday before the VAT increase came into effect in early January in a bid to save as much money as possible on their holiday, according to research carried out by independent tourism and accommodation directory iknow-uk.
With this in mind Post Office Travel Insurance is reminding cost conscious travellers – both those that will be going abroad and those looking to holiday in the UK – not to forget about their travel insurance, as having the right holiday insurance in place before you travel can potentially see travellers avoid any costly payouts.
Holiday insurance remains vital as it can protect against unexpected cancellations and delays, as well as offering peace of mind should any accidents or emergencies occur while you are away.
The Post Office is advising travellers to shop around for the best deals on their travel insurance before departure. For those planning multiple trips during the year, Post Office Travel Insurance advises that an annual travel insurance policy may offer the best value for money.
The Post Office offers a range of travel insurance options including three levels of cover on its annual multi-trip and single trip policies and new cover for gap years or a career break.
