Travel insurance customers can still find a good price for their holiday despite the increase in oil prices, one specialist has claimed.

Crude oil is expected to remain above $100 (£62) a barrel for the next four months, though this cost should not discourage individals from travelling abroad, according to a spokesman from the Flight Centre.

David Forder, head of marketing at the organisation, said: "There are still plenty of great deals out there, provided you book as far in advance as possible and seek out expert advice to make an informed decision."

In addition, travel insurance customers should contact their travel agent to find out how they can still find the best holidays available.

He also suggests that locations such as Asia are still good value for money due to their favourable exchange rate with the UK, meaning that customers' money will last longer during their trip away from Britain.
