More Brits travelling without insurance

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has expressed concern over the number of Britons failing to take out travel insurance when on holiday in Europe and further afield. The FCO has highlighted that less than half of young Brits check if their insurance covers them properly.

The concern is not just over young adults travelling abroad though, with 25 per cent of all Brits not taking out travel insurance last year. The figure rose 5 per cent compared with 2011, according to travel association ABTA.
Quad Biking

45 per cent of British tourists aged 16-24 admitted that though they took out insurance they failed to check if the policy would cover risky activities, such as skydiving, rock climbing and quad biking. A further 48 per cent of young travellers admitted they didn’t take out a policy at all.

 “An emergency abroad can be extremely expensive. Medical treatment or returning to the UK could cost you thousands of pounds, unless you are adequately insured,” said Mark Simmonds, Foreign and Commonwealth Office Minister. We will do what we can to support people who require medical assistance but the FCO cannot pay their medical bills or fly them home. This is why we urge people to take out a comprehensive insurance policy which covers them for everything that they want to do while on holiday."
Rock Climbing

The ABTA is now asking the Government to look over regulations concerning the sale of insurance, to ensure that British travellers are better protected abroad. "It's concerning to see so many young people travelling overseas uninsured, particularly when they are more likely to take part in adventurous behaviour, “ said Mark Tanzer, CEO of ABTA.
