Organising travel insurance can be a bit of a nightmare. Knowing what you're covered for, any exceptions for activities and the values your insurance protects you up to can be pretty difficult to understand if you're not used to reading page after page of small print – but travel insurance is still a must-have for any trip.
In this blog, we're going to be busting some commonly held misconceptions about travel insurance and discuss why no matter where you're heading off to, it's an essential expense that's well worth paying for.
Did you know that a UK couple has been unable to claim on their home insurance following a break in? Why, I hear you ask? Because they posted a few holiday snaps on social media while they were away!
This seems like complete and utter madness, but according to the company in question, the couple did not take ‘reasonable care’ to ensure that their property was safe and secure during their break by adding their holiday snaps to Facebook before they returned home.
Normally, when we think of ‘reasonable care’ when it comes to keeping our homes secure while we’re on holiday, we might close some of our blinds and double check that all windows and doors are firmly locked. Not for a moment would we ever think that a cheeky selfie in the airport bar could land us in big trouble should our homes be broken into while we’re away.
However, our home insurance companies don’t quite see things in the same light with many industry experts citing images of us lounging around by the pool on social media akin to hanging a giant sign outside our homes inviting burglars to try their luck.
According to The Telegraph, majority of burglars use social media to select victims and potential houses to target. Information may not just be in the form of holiday snaps of you but they have known to be looking for key information such as airport check-ins and photos of boarding passes.
Therefore, the Financial Ombudsman Service is warning social media users of the potential risks associated with sharing our details online to make sure that no-one else falls foul of this potential home insurance pitfall.
Here're a few tips on how to keep your home insurance company happy by sharing your holiday experiences on social media without adding undue risk to your home and your family, making them less vulnerable.
Nothing can spoil a holiday quite like a lost suitcase. After spending hours trawling the high street for new holiday outfits, perfectly packing those essential items and toiletries and looking forward to taking off your travel clothes and heading straight the hotel pool, it’s frustrating waiting at the luggage carousel only to realise that your suitcase hasn’t made it to your destination.
Although airlines and airports will make an effort to track down your luggage, it can be days until you're finally reunited with your suitcase. This wait can put a serious dampener on your break, especially if you're only going away for a week.
That's why it's always a good idea to have a lost luggage back-up plan so that your week in the sun isn't completely ruined by a lost bag. Here are our top tips on how to create your own lost luggage plan.

If you’re travelling as a couple or a group, there might be a discussion about the best way to reach your destination.

Researchers from the University of Houston discovered that bacteria levels in hotel rooms could be between 2 to 10 times higher than the levels accepted in hospitals. While we know that this doesn’t really mean anything or that it's not any dirtier than some homes, it is the stranger factor that we are most repulsed by, and the many strangers and accumulative effects at that.
Housekeeping have many rooms to go through and are given no more than around 30 minutes each room. Although we really don't want to put you off travelling anywhere, some items in your hotel room can be a breeding ground for all sorts of illness-inducing nasties.
