COMPREHENSIVE POLICIES: To safeguard your peace of mind this summer. COMPREHENSIVE POLICIES: To safeguard your peace of mind this summer.

WE live in tempestuous times for travellers. This summer has seen the Bastille Day atrocity in Nice, the terrorist attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, and continued restrictions on travel to countries on our doorstep due to security and safety risks, including Syria, Tunisia and Egypt. 

On the economic front, another travel company has gone bust this summer, with Lowcosttravelgroup leaving more than 100,000 holidaymakers out of pocket. So you can be forgiven for thinking twice about where to travel this year. However, British travellers maintain their characteristic resilience in the face of adversity and our thirst to find the perfect holiday remains stronger than ever. 

So how do we protect ourselves against the vagaries of the economic cycle. In truth, the only certainty is that nowhere is risk free. However, you can make an informed choice about your next destination by knowing the latest official travel advice and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) website is a great place to start, www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice. 

When it comes to travel insurance most of us routinely think about medical protection and cover for personal possessions, but what if your airline or coach operator goes bust? Or conflict, or terror attacks break out where you are booked to travel? Check your travel insurance cover before you travel as many policies won’t cover these risks as standard. 

Globelink always strives to provide customers with cover that suits today’s traveller in today’s climate and their latest policy options are no exception. Unlike some competitors, their annual multi trip, comprehensive and winter sports policies include end supplier insolvency protection and force majeure travel disruption cover as standard. 

This means that if your pre-booked holiday providers, such as coach operator, airline, hotel or car hire company go out of business due to financial failure, you are protected. You are also covered for additional costs if your holiday is disrupted due to conflict, war or a terrorist attack. 

This type of cover is a real consideration in these unsettled times and especially now that more of us are booking our travel independently, so be sure to select the right policy for that extra peace of mind this summer.
