London, UK (PRWeb UK) September 7, 2010
According to recent research by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO), the average UK traveller spends an average of £12 at the airport on magazines and sweets - almost double the cost of a single-trip travel insurance policy . However, Post Office Travel Insurance has found that a significant proportion of UK holidaymakers are willing to risk travelling without travel insurance.
According to Post Office Travel Insurance research, as many as 20 per cent of travellers fail to take out travel insurance before leaving the UK . Although holidaymakers may think they are saving money by forgoing travel insurance, Post Office Travel Insurance reminds travellers that they risk substantial unforeseen costs if they cut back on this necessity.
Travel insurance should be an essential component of any trip, with unexpected flight cancellations, medical costs, and loss or damage to baggage all covered by a Post Office Travel Insurance. Post Office Travel Insurance advises all holidaymakers to ensure they are well prepared by researching and taking out suitable travel insurance before going away.
