Guide to Business Insurance (Series) – Fleet Insurance
Posted on 16th May 2018
Over 60 million British people go abroad in the summer. The ABTA has recently revealed that 1 in 5 of those British travellers go abroad without travel insurance. Furthermore, just over a quarter of 15-24 year olds are under the misapprehension that the UK Government will cover their medical expenses if something went wrong abroad.
Lynda St Cooke of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Know Before You Go Campaign said:
“We are worried that so many British travellers are going abroad without travel insurance. It’s a false economy – we see many cases where holiday makers are faced with bills of tens of thousands of pounds for medical treatment and repatriation. Getting comprehensive travel insurance means that whilst an accident may disrupt your holiday, it won’t bankrupt you.”
An emergency abroad could cost you thousands so if you're looking at going away in the summer, don't forget your travel insurance!
