Moneysupermarket.com is urging travellers to research must-have travel insurance options and not to overlook low cost options.
Despite costing more than double, policies from big brand insurers provide similar, if not lower levels of travel cover, according to research from price comparison website moneysupermarket.com.
Richard Mason, director of insurance at moneysupermarket.com, says: “Little known travel insurers provide good levels of cover at a lower cost compared with the big brands. It is encouraging for travellers to know there are low cost options on the market providing high levels of cover for their needs. With low-cost options it is not always a case of ‘you get what you pay for’. I urge customers to compare policies on a like for like basis and check levels of cover are sufficient for you and your family's needs."
