March 2011 UK travellers are increasingly searching for winter sun destinations such as Turkey, according to Experian Hitwise's latest UK quarterly travel report, which also reveals destinations in India and the Canary Islands are proving popular. Post Office Travel Insurance is therefore reminding holidaymakers going abroad this winter to check they have adequate travel insurance in place for the destination they are holidaying in. Travel insurance offers protection against any unexpected cancellations and delays and gives travellers peace of mind should they fall ill while they are abroad. Holiday insurance can also safeguard against any loss or theft of personal belongings making it an essential item to pack. For frequent travellers, an annual travel insurance policy often offers the best value for money. An annual travel insurance policy will see travellers insured for any number of trips they make within a year. However, it is important for travellers to check the annual travel insurance policy covers all planned destinations and activities. For those embarking on a one-off venture, Post Office Travel Insurance recommends shopping around in advance to secure the best deal on a single trip travel insurance policy. For example, the Post Office offers a range of travel insurance options including three levels of cover on its annual multi-trip and single trip policies and new cover for gap years or a career break . ### Contact We're here to help.
