Double Check Holiday Insurance Cover Warns Insurer

Published: 6/19/2010

Travel insurance is an essential part of any journey, though travellers should ensure that they are protected for things they do whilst on holiday warns esure.

Ten percent of people think travel insurance covers them for any situation, which is certainly not the case. Things such as scuba diving, bungee jumping and even riding a motorbike would not be covered should a claim be needed afterwards. Around eight percent of people suffer injuries after such activities so it is good advice from esure to check the policy details.

As an esure spokesman emphasised, suffering even a relatively minor injury can mean a big medical bill and without travel insurance cover those costs would have to be met by the individual.
