Why do I need Travel Insurance?

Mr. Todd (name changed for identity purposes) popped into our Javea office after seeing our advert in the Euro Weekly News. He was planning a trip abroad to see family, he has pre-existing medical conditions, and feels that Travel Insurance is an unnecessary additional expense to the cost of a trip.

Emma, our Insurance Specialist discussed Mr. Todd’s concerns at great length. She was able to establish his personal circumstances, give him the best possible option, and explain how there are very real financial risks of travelling without the cover of insurance, especially having pre-existing medical conditions.

Emma provided a list of reasons why Travel Insurance is important:

  • You may need to cancel or shorten your
    trip due to the illness or injury of yourself or
    a loved one.
  • You may need emergency medical treatment
    whilst abroad, which may result in the need
    for medical repatriation
  • Accident causing injury or death would result
    in significant legal costs
  • Your outward or return journey could be
    seriously delayed
  • You may need to abandon your trip if you
    were involved in an accident or emergency
    en-route to your departure point.
  • You may have an accident or sudden illness
    during your trip.

Mr. Todd felt Emma held his hand every step of the way, from his quotation, filling in the forms, making the payment, to making sure that he had all the policy information and contact details to hand, should something unexpected happen and he needs to make a claim.
