Organising a holiday can involve extensive planning and no matter how hard holidaymakers try to get everything ticked off their to-do list, there are always some items that are left to the last-minute.
This is where last-minute travel insurance is so invaluable. Even if you have left taking out a travel insurance policy until the 11th hour, you can be rest assured that last-minute travel insurance will provide the cover you need for the full duration of your holiday; and this applies from the moment you have secured it online or over the phone.
What does last-minute travel insurance cover?
Like any other travel insurance policy, last-minute travel insurance provides cover for emergency medical and other expenses, for the loss of your baggage, personal money, passport and documents and more.
Even if you throw a few last-minute items are into your suitcase before you head out, you can rest safe in the knowledge that your last-minute travel insurance provides cover for your baggage starting from £1,000.
I plan to visit a number of destinations on my holiday; will I be covered?
The great thing about last-minute travel insurance is that it allows you to make last-minute decisions about where you will travel within a region if you need to. If you want to stay on the continent and explore the best that Europe has to offer, from the vineyards of Italy to the beaches of Portugal, simply opt for European travel insurance cover. If you want to head further afield and see what the rest of the world has to offer, then you can simply opt for worldwide travel insurance cover.
I am a fan of active holidays; will I be covered?
Whether you want to try out one or a number of activities on your holiday, your last-minute travel insurance policy will give you the freedom to choose from a number of active pursuits, knowing that you have cover in place.
Activities covered under your last-minute travel insurance can range from jet boating all the way through to hot air ballooning.
If you want to be even more adventurous, trying out activities such as gorge walking or micro lighting, simply add hazardous activities to your last-minute travel insurance policy.
