Who thought a travel insurance policy would be a good holiday read? Full of technical terms, small print and no pictures! No wonder 25% of travellers never bother to read their policy. Of course, the problems arise when you come to make a claim – suddenly the small print is important, especially when you discover that you can’t claim for everything and this is generally when you feel unhappy and that you have wasted your money.
Travel Insurance Explained wants to put a stop to all that!
