Commenting on recent introductions, by some travel insurers, of baggage claim exclusions on passengers travelling through Terminal 5, Saga would like to reassure travellers that not all insurers are taking such a hard nosed view.
"Saga travel insurance is not planning to introduce any new exclusions for those customers travelling from T5. The decision of some companies to introduce new exclusions for customers travelling from T5 is, in our view, an assault on common sense. Saga Travel Insurance has always encouraged people to ensure they are taking out full insurance protection when travelling abroad. We believe the consequences of not doing so can be nothing less than devastating. Other insurers that are introducing arbitrary exclusions of this nature will only encourage people to take out policies that are unlikely to meet their needs", says Lisa Harris.
