The Post Office advises travellers to ensure their travel insurance provides for transport cancellation

The recent wintery conditions across the UK have highlighted the necessity for many travellers to ensure they have adequate travel insurance, according to the Post Office.

The last month has brought strong reminders for the UK of the need for travel insurance cover, as airline failure and wintry weather caused problems for many UK travellers. Many flights were delayed or cancelled as major airports across the UK were closed due to the inclement weather conditions, with train services across the UK also suffering severe disruption.

In light of this, Post Office Travel Insurance is advising UK holidaymakers to consider annual travel insurance, as travel insurance can offer some protection for cover against unforeseen circumstances. Post Office Travel Insurance policies can provide holidaymakers with peace of mind that they won't be out of pocket as a result of delays or missed departures due to bad weather even if travelling within the UK. For example, travel within the UK is covered under the Post Office's annual travel insurance policy, for any trip which involves more than two nights of pre-booked accommodation.

Whether travelling abroad or within the UK travel insurance policies can provide some protection if delays or cancellation of flights or trains affect travel or accommodations plans. The Post Office recommends all travel insurance policyholders check their existing cover when booking their holidays to ensure they are fully covered.
