1. Get your travel dates right on your travel insurance policy

It sounds simple, but it’s a mistake that people do make, and it’s very important to get it right because if you don’t you could invalidate your whole travel insurance policy.

A common mistake is to start your travel insurance policy on the date that you arrive in, or leave resort, rather than the date you leave or arrive home, which on a long journey could be different. Be careful with return flights that leave resort late at night, it could be the next morning by the time you land back in the UK.

It is very important that you buy travel insurance cover for the entire duration of your holiday. This means that your outbound journey and return journey must both be completed during the period of travel insurance cover. If you don’t do this your policy could be invalidated and you will be effectively travelling without insurance cover.

It only takes a second to double check your travel dates when you buy your travel insurance policy to ensure that you will be covered.
