Travel insurance 'is an essential purchase'
People packing their bags for a winter break have been reminded of the importance of having travel insurance in place.
According to This is Money commentator Tara Evans, "taking out travel insurance is essential if you want to protect your holiday, your belongings and yourself".
She said holidaymakers will have to make the choice between single trip and annual cover travel insurance and went on to suggest a number of ways in which this could be decided.
Ms Evans explained the best thing for a person to do is to calculate how many times they will be going away in a 12-month period against the cheapest quote they can get for each trip.
This should help to highlight which form of travel insurance is best-suited to their needs.
Such cover may come in handy for tourists heading through France today (November 23rd 2010), as a day of industrial action has been planned and is expected to cause disruption to travel.
