Holiday Insurance (The small print)
 
Holiday Insurance (The small print)

After a recent occurrence of someone falling ill (brain tumour) and now talk of requiring repatriation to the UK plus hospital bills to be paid etc etc etc and then finding out their insurance is not valid because of the length of stay in Turkey and are now looking at bills in the region of 50,000 Euro and up.

I thought maybe a gentle reminder to people to check their own insurance validity.

I've never been concerned in the past as I never envisaged being away for more than 14 days at a time, but who knows, next year might be a different story, so apart from the usual lost luggage, delays and cancelled flights etc I thought it time to check my own policy, and I will admit I thought my annual multi-trip policy covered me for any one trip of 'up-to 45 days' but on checking I finally found the small print clause on page 6 of 61 that states 31 day duration.
Maybe the 45 days was a older policy and I still have that figure in my head.

However I have since heard people also saying their policy also only covers them just for 31 days at any one time.
But on searching such as the Post Office travel insurance I note you can ask or/and stipulate how long you would like it to be, obviously anything out of the ordinary will come at a premium, but what price do we put on peace of mind.

So: -
1. I urge people to check their eligible stay time period.

2. Does your policy have more than the 31 day limit and if so did it come as standard or did it cost very much to have it upgraded?
