Legal and General are reminding UK holidaymakers to make sure their travel insurance includes their luggage, even if the trip is within the United Kingdom.
From a study carried out by a team at Legal and General a typical family of four people could have belongings in their luggage worth over GBP3,000, so not having insurance in place for such a value would be a high risk strategy. The common conception of travel insurance is that it is needed for overseas travel, but this is not the case.
Baggage can be lost or damaged on any holiday say Legal and General, not just one in a different country, and losing GBP3,000 worth of items would not help anyone. Far better, therefore, to get suitable travel insurance.
