Don’t forget your Travel insurance for your Easter or May Holiday breaks


Easter and the UK May bank holidays are getting close and it is important that holiday makers take out Travel insurance even if they are going away for a few days

As Easter is much later again this year there will be more people taking a holiday. In 2008 as it was so early, many schools in the UK only had a one week break, then had a further break of a week in late April.

This year is more normal so many people will be away for a longer period. Many will set off to warmer climates but you must not forget your Travel Insurance.
You never know if you are going to be delayed, loose your belongings or have an accident. jml Insurance acts as introducers to well know providers like Endsleigh, Essential Travel, Direct Travel Insurance and Simple Travel Insurance. These providers offer a variety of packages from a weekend break to an annual policy. You can take out specialist cover for all those leisure break essentials like golf clubs or ski equipment.
Many people do actually buy annual travel insurance and annual car hire excess insurance. Apart from the fact that you don’t have to then take this out for every trip you make, it is usually a lot cheaper than buying single trip policies. When people are on a tighter budget it is important to consider such options.

With more and more people owing holiday home accommodation jml-insurance can also introduce property owners to range of providers for properties in the UK or overseas written in English. These providers include Intasure, Andrew Copeland International, Letsure, Rentguard, Ember JD and Devon Direct.
If you have not booked a holiday yet, take a look at the great selection on offer at jmlvillas.com. Find out more by following this search link Have a good break.
