Is Travel Insurance Essential When Flying

So, you are going on holiday but may be on a budget and don’t want to pay that bit extra for travel insurance. Travel insurance always comes to mind as in do I really need it and is it worth the money. But in some cases, it really is worth and recommended that you purchase travel insurance if you are heading abroad. Purchase travel insurance the same as you are booking for your holiday, on the one-off chance something may go wrong before your trip away. Whether you are travelling for pleasure or business basic travel insurance will help you stay covered while you are on holiday. So, let’s look at why travel insurance is essential when flying.

What is Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a policy that offers financial protection and protects you against unforeseen travel incidents like if you had to cancel your trip due to illness or even lost luggage. The policy is made up of travel support services and insurance cover designed to give you travel protection. Whether you are travelling local or abroad the policy is there to help you in the event something goes wrong. Sometimes unnecessary things happen that is why it is important to have travel protection in place.

Policies that you can choose

There are many different types of travel insurance to choose from these include single, multi, or annual trip policy. An annual policy can work out at better value if you travel regularly several times a year. You can also purchase a single policy, a couple’s policy, or a family policy. All policies can vary so always ensure you understand your insurance and always read the terms and conditions. If you are doing more dangerous activities like diving or skiing which would be considered high risk, you should investigate getting a specific policy that would specifically cover those activities as a standard policy may not cover you.

What does travel insurance cover

The insurance cover can differ by carrier and most holiday and travel insurance policies cover various things; these include:

Trip Cancellation

If your trip is cancelled, delayed due to a natural disaster, or you become ill, trip cancellation under your travel insurance policy will reimburse you for non-refundable travel costs. Carrier provided or independent insurance policies offer protection up to the amount that you purchased. Trip cancellation cover is up to 4000 of the cost of the trip if you are unable to travel. Another benefit of this is you will be covered for trip interruption costs. Trip interruption reimburses travellers if you are forced to abandon your travel and trip midway. This will also include an unplanned cost of a flight back home.

Luggage cover

If your luggage is delayed or lost or someone steals something from your bags, travel insurance will pay for the costs of replacing these items. Losing your belongings is always a worry while travelling however once you have travel insurance you will be safely covered. After 12-24 hours of your baggage being delayed, you can claim your policy limit for all essential items. If your baggage was never found or damaged, you can make a claim to buy those possessions back.

Medical Expenses

Medical and accident emergencies can happen and can end up being expensive if you are not covered financially. If you become ill or have an accident abroad then you will be financially covered under your travel insurance policy.

Delayed departure

If your flights are delayed or you miss your connecting flight you will be covered by your travel insurance policy. If your flights are delayed outside of your control your travel insurance policy will protect you. Most policies are different, but if your flight is delayed for over 12 hours your insurance cover will protect you. Insurance will also cover you for expenses such as hotel costs or food.

Accidental death

If someone in your party suffers life-altering accident or dies during your trip away, your insurance will cover you for the limit that is payable by your insurers. All payment options can vary so it is best to do your research and find the best price.

Buying travel insurance is a gamble, however it is recommended that you purchase it in order to protect yourself financially during your holiday abroad. Shop around online to find the right insurer at the best value. Always think about where you are travelling, how often you travel, how old you are, are you travelling on a package holiday or independently, what will you be doing while you are away, and how are you travelling to go on holiday. Your travel insurance should always include delayed baggage, lost or stolen baggage, cancellation or missed flights, medical expenses, personal injury cover, accident cover, and much more. Insurance for travelling is worth purchasing.

Why Stay In An Airport Hotel?

Airport Hotels have a bad reputation, which previously they may have deserved, but there has been a push to renovate old buildings and make them more desirable. Now you will find most will be modern, convenient and the perfect spot to sleep after a long flight.

It won’t be the most iconic hotel, but you will be surprised by what you find. Plus, it is unlikely to be fully booked!

Easily Accessible

Flying is an exhausting experience and most people land feeling tired, dreading the onward journey. Why not take that part out of the whole experience and stay in an airport hotel?

Once you have your bags, you are free to check-in and treat yourself to a hot shower or some room service. Forget trying to wrangle a taxi or find the correct bus, worry about that in the morning after a good night’s sleep.

It will considerably cut down your travel time and get the holiday started early.

No Stress Arrival

The convenience on arrival can be translated to departures as well. There are lots of variables that can affect your outbound flight, delays, cancellations and getting stuck in traffic that means you miss check-in.

Instead of putting yourself through the stress and boredom of arriving at the airport three hours early just in case – stay there and you will be able to spend maximum time relaxing. If your flight is delayed, a hotel lobby is far greater than a departure lounge!

Convenient For Car Rentals

The cheapest rental deals are usually all from the airport, however the airport is usually quite a journey from your destination. So, in an attempt to save money, many travelers will get into a car, tired from traveling and face difficulties like driving on a different side of the road.

However, a great alternative to this is staying at an airport hotel that is either on the grounds of the airport or offers a shuttle service. You can still get a lift on arrival, have some rest, and get a ride back the next day.

You won’t have to pay for this service, so you will save money on rentals while still getting the cheap deal.

Better Rates

As these hotels aren’t as popular, the prices are usually lower than accommodation in the city Centre. You will often be surprised at the good deal that can be found by thinking outside of the box.

You will just have to be careful that the lower prices reflect the location – not the amenities. There is nothing worse than expecting a hotel and ending up in a basic, hostel-style room so make sure they offer room service, swimming pools, or whatever your deal breaker is.

How To Pick The Best Airport Hotel?

Picking a good hotel can be a difficult process as there are endless amounts of information available. Different websites, booking processes, reviews, pictures – you name it, you can find it.

To make the process more streamlined, you need a plan going in; a family holiday will have different priorities to a solo traveler attending a work conference. It’s far easier to find a hotel this way than just searching the location and hoping for the best!

Pick Your Requirements

Most hotel comparison sites allow you to filter their listings by your necessities. Be sure to have a list of things you can’t live without.

Whether it is a free breakfast or a soundproofed hotel, free WIFI or complimentary parking, these are all deciding factors in the booking process. Be careful of the small print as sometimes amenities are only included in the price of luxury rooms – don’t get caught out paying more than you have to!

Check The Reviews

This is a tool that you will have to use your better judgment as they are both helpful and misleading at the same time. It is recommended to check several sites to see what the consensus is.

Make sure to read the poor reviews as well as the good ones to find out exactly what people didn’t like. If there was a party next door then that won’t apply to you, but if the WIFI consistently doesn’t work then you would be better off avoiding it.

Check The Location Carefully

Despite the hotel having ‘airport’ in the name, it might not actually be at the airport. If you book accommodation for the convenience but end up taking a lengthy bus ride to reach it, then it defeats the point of booking.

Make sure to check the distance yourself as it is easy to be misleading when it comes to distance. A hotel that is five minutes’ drive from the airport sounds perfect, but it might also translate into a 45-minute walk that ruins your arrival.

Mixing Up Dates

This is easily done with international travel when you leave one time zone and arrive in another. Make sure to check the hotel policy for travelers arriving in the early hours – an airport hotel without 24-hour check-in is unusual but can happen.

With these hotels, you won’t have to factor in travel times, so it makes the whole booking process a lot easier as you won’t be guessing arrival times.
