We are the first to admit it – our travel insurance small print is often difficult to read and can on occasion be confusing in its presentation. Indeed, our latest competition asked people what they hated about travel insurance, and small print and jargon came out near the top.
Ok, so the UK weather has been typically temperamental so far this year. We have had some lovely, long hot days, but also more than our fair share of rain. With the school summer holidays now upon us, the question is, will there be lots more sunshine to enjoy?
You have probably all heard of the Tour de France, and the ubiquitous yellow jersey which runs throughout the month of July. But in the same way Wimbledon can get you in the mood for playing tennis, and the Marathon can tempt you to take up running, how are you feeling about cycling right now?
Insurance of any kind can be quite a complicated thing – there are often lots of jargon terms used and understanding the levels of cover, and excesses etc, can be quite tricky.

But actually the preparation for a holiday can be pretty stressful, and so I thought I would put a few tips together so that you can get on with unwinding and enjoying your holiday.
Unfortunately, I am talking today about a familiar story. We have all heard of people travelling without adequate travel insurance and then the horror stories if they then fall ill abroad. It really makes you stop and think… This time a British woman from Liverpool had a heart attack while on an American cruise and is now stuck in Mexico with escalating hospital costs. The couple were not covered by their HSBC travel insurance as Valerie already had angina.
