Post Office Travel Insurance is reminding all spa-seeking holidaymakers that as with any holiday it is vital to purchase travel insurance to provide additional peace of mind against cancellation or illness.
Spa breaks, are the most popular type of wellness holiday, with 22 % of UK travellers opting for this type of break, with others choosing holidays which include low impact physical activities to help improve fitness.
