Keep it real with a travel insurance deal with

When you're packing for your family summer holiday or your romantic weekend break for two, what's the very last thing on your mind? For many people, it's travel insurance. It's viewed as an optional extra, something you take out if you think you can afford the extra expense, when really it should be an essential part of everyone's holiday abroad.

Why take travel insurance?

Whether you're travelling with the whole family or backpacking across Asia alone, medical emergencies can occur. If you're stung by a jellyfish, injured in a snowboarding accident or come down with food poisoning after trying some particularly spicy local street food, you may have to visit your nearest A & E or at the very least, a doctor's surgery. Medical bills in foreign countries can seem excessive to us pampered Brits, who are used to the delights of the NHS, and it can be quite a shock to find yourself faced with a bill for hundreds or even thousands of pounds at the end of your treatment! If you're seriously injured during your travels, the last thing you want to worry about is paying for the care you need, which is why taking out travel insurance is such a great idea. With single trip cover starting from just a few pounds and family travel insurance available which covers the kids for free, there really is no excuse to travel without insurance in 2014!

Rest and relaxation with travel insurance

Holidays are all about rest and relaxation for most of us (unless you're a hardcore adrenaline junkie), and what better way to get peace of mind as you're lying on a sun-drenched beach than by knowing that you and your family are protected thanks to your travel insurance policy. Travel insurance will protect you no matter what happens on your holiday, so whether you break your Kindle or fracture your ankle, there's no need to worry about your finances
