Buying Travel Insurance
With the world in a spiraling economic downturn, its good to see that people are still booking holidays to get away from it all. A lot of people are really searching out and comparing bargains which is great but its been reported over 84% of people have considered not buying travel insurance to save money.
Making sure you have travel insurance while on holiday anywhere in the world is very important. Most countries including USA and most of Europe don’t provide free health care like the NHS do in the UK. If you became ill or had an accident you would be paying extortionate amounts to foreign doctors or hospitals.
Also what happens if the holiday you had save all year for was cancelled or delayed due to bad weather, this happened most recently at the start of January 2010, where airports through-
Holiday insurance covers you in these events, and its easily bought from just £3 for a single trip. Travel insurance has evolved and by comparing a few companies you can get comprehensive cover for a great price.
Single or Annual cover?
If your looking for travel insurance, then there are 2 main choices, 3 if your planning to work abroad. Most people go for single trip insurance but if you are taking part in extreme sports like snowboarding, water sports etc or take more than 2 holidays a year then annual cover may be more cost effective. The third type of covers is backpackers cover, but that will be covered later.
Basically single trip insurance was introduced for those taking a short break from 7 to 14 days and tailored to your chosen destination. Prices on single trip insurance can vary but start at £3 and up.
Annual travel insurance is more suited to those taking more than 2 trips per year, or travelling to the USA. It doesn't matter how many times you travel abroad as you are covered for 1 year from the date it starts.
If your planning a gap year or extended stays abroad, including working abroad then you must pick up backpackers or gap year insurance. This type of insurance is specifically for this type of holiday/vacation.

If you are planning to work in any part of Greece, including Zante for a period over 2 weeks, then you need backpackers or gap year insurance. This covers you if you have any sort of accident or fall ill while away.
Don’t be tempted to work or travel abroad for long periods of time, as if anything
should happen you could be in for a hefty bill and trying to claim on normal holiday
cover would void your claim if found out.
When buying backpackers or gap year cover make sure you take the excess waiver or the gold option, if your away on a budget the last thing you want to be doing is paying out your hard earned wages on a doctor or medical centre consultation.

Its been said time and again that travel insurance is your most important purchase
when taking a holiday after your initial purchase. Make sure your getting the right
travel insurance that covers you for your type of holiday. If your going on a holiday
which will involve lots of sporting activities like football, bungee jumping, mountain
biking, hiking its normally best to go for the extreme sports cover.
If your large family that takes a few holidays a year then annual insurance would cover you best. If your thinking of visiting Zante or anywhere in Greece then all you need is European cover rather than worldwide. This is an easy way to skimp on spending money and one of the few places you should skimp money on.
