BBC Radio Swindon II: Travel Insurance

Why do I need it?

What hapens if you lose your baggage or need medical treatment....

Golden Rule
don’t get it from your travel operator!

Usually 2 choices single trip insurance or annual insurance
Annual starts to become the best buy when you make more than 2 trips a year.

Costs can vary according also to where you are going eg more in the USA because of expensive medical bills.

Who offer the best deals?

Go to a broker/price comparison site eg

European health Insurance Card (EHIC)

Replaces E111, get free or discounted medical treatment in any EU country + Switzerland
Get from Post Offices, Tel: 0845 606 2030 or Department of Health Website
