In the post-pandemic world, travel insurance has become a crucial safeguard for avid travelers. Despite rising costs and uncertainties, millions of Brits are determined to embark on their long-awaited getaways. After being forced to put plans on hold for reasons beyond our control over the last few years, people are prepared to make sacrifices to have those breaks and enjoy long overdue holidays.
Research from our travel insurance partners at Just Travel Cover shows that 76% of people still prioritise holidays despite rising household bills. Data from the World Travel Market reveals that nearly half of those booking holidays are doing so because they want something to look forward to.
But why is travel insurance more important than ever? A recent survey of more than 1,000 people showed that travelers feel it's essential, especially after the challenges posed by Covid. Dale Robinson at Just Travel Cover states, "We’re seeing more people choose gold and silver levels of cover than pre-pandemic, and we’re still getting questions around Covid cover. People are much more confident to travel, but they want to ensure they’re protected, particularly if they have pre-existing medical conditions."
The cost of medical treatment abroad is rising, and people could be left facing huge bills if they need emergency treatment overseas – one of the reasons why Travel Insurance is so important.
