London, UK (PRWeb UK) April 8, 2010
In the wake of the recent airline and proposed rail strikes, many UK holidaymakers may worry that their travel plans may be affected by industrial action. With some holiday plans already disrupted, Post Office Travel Insurance reminds travellers of the importance of checking the terms and conditions of their travel insurance policy.
The Association of British Insurers advises that any travel insurance policy purchased prior to the announcement of airline strike dates should cover them as normal. However, travellers will not be covered by their travel insurance if industrial action is classed as a 'known event' when purchasing the policy.
When choosing travel insurance, cover for delays and cancellations are just one of the many things which people should consider. Post Office Travel Insurance urges holidaymakers travelling both internationally and within the UK to check their travel insurance policy suits their individual circumstances.
Travel insurance is essential for holidaymakers choosing to fly both abroad and within the UK. There are several reasons for travellers to spend some time to ensure they select a suitable travel insurance policy. As well as travel insurance covering medical emergencies unforeseen events such as lost or damaged luggage or a lost or stolen passport or wallet can be covered by travel insurance.
