Have you got a spring in your step?

Spring is in the air, but unfortunately that often means April showers when it comes to the weather in the UK. So the start of spring is the perfect time to pack your bags and take off on a short break or longer holiday, for some much-needed sunshine.

Pack your essentials

Packing for a spring break can be trickier than simply packing for a summer holiday in a hot destination. If you're travelling in the UK or Europe, the weather can often be unpredictable. Make sure you take layers and cover-ups for those chillier days as well as outfits for hot weather, so that you're prepared for anything! Don't forget essentials such as suntan lotion, sandals and of course a first aid kit; and make sure you organise your travel insurance before you set off on your travels.

Why travel insurance?

For those travelling alone or with friends, travel insurance may not seem essential. But when you think about the things that could potentially go wrong on holiday, it makes sense to ensure you're protected. Most of us travel with at least a few gadgets - your camera, smartphone, e-reader and maybe even a laptop. If these are lost or stolen, you could find yourself out of pocket paying to replace them.
