The Easter holidays are fast approaching which means lots of families all over the UK are planning their family get away.
Some families may choose to stay local with a UK break; others may prefer to go abroad on either a city break or a beach holiday. Whatever type of holiday you and your family choose to go on, choose carefully and book wisely.
When booking your Easter holiday, shop around to find the best deal but also be wary of deals that sound too good to be true.
Ensure the holiday providers are legitimate and accredited so that should anything happen in a worst case scenario, such as you or a member of your family have an accident or become ill, you will receive the best possible service to help you in the event of such a situation.
You should also ensure you have adequate travel insurance which covers you and all of your family members on the holiday should anything such as an accident or illness occur whilst on the holiday or travelling to or from your destination.
By having adequate travel insurance, you can have peace of mind knowing you are covered should your family holiday not run as smoothly as you’d like. Without travel insurance, you are liable to pay for your own medical treatment should you need it.
According to Government statistics, 16% of travellers believe that travel insurance is unnecessary, but in actual fact, it’s the opposite. For more information about things you should know before going on holiday, visit the Government’s Know Before You Go page here, it has all you need to know and do in preparation for going on holiday.
People who have an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) should be made aware that this is not a substitute for travel insurance. You still need travel insurance as the EHIC will not cover you for private medical healthcare or costs, lost or stolen property, being flown back to the UK or if you are in such a situation where you require mountain rescue in a ski resort. This is why it important to have both an EHIC and travel insurance.
