Travel Insurance: Read the small print for flights

Monday, 21 January 2008

Tourists should always look to view the small print when buying flights so they do not have to pay extra costs, a spokeswoman at Holiday Which? magazine has suggested.

According to head of research at the organisation Claire Lilley, price is the most important aspect of booking for a lot of people when choosing flights.

Because of this, travellers often make sacrifices and are prepared to sit away from other members of their family for a cheaper deal, she stated.

She added that customers must not be tricked by firms into thinking that they have to shell out for items that are not a necessity.

"Be clear about what you want at the start of your booking. Make up your mind before you start your booking if you want travel insurance, if you want speedy boarding. Don't let yourself be talked into it by their smooth marketing spiel," she commented.

People wanting to make trips could consider a number of travel insurance deals that are available in the market.

Recently, the company noted that travellers opting for budget carriers are paying up to £28 more than advertised prices.
