Travel Insurance: Marrying abroad 'cheaper'

Tuesday, 04 September 2007

Marrying abroad can actually save money when compared to tying the knot in the UK, one expert has claimed.

Despite additional expenses such as travel insurance and flights, Ron Cropper of said that the average cost is lower than the £18,000 which new couples shell out to say their vows on British shores.

In addition to the financial incentive, many couples find that any family issues they may have such as divorced parents and the ensuing politics involved, can be mitigated by a less traditional overseas wedding, he claimed.

"A lot of bride and groom's parents have been divorced and it makes things easier if the wedding is less traditional because of things like who gives the bride away and who sits at the top table," explained Mr Cropper.

However, one UK tradition at weddings which the couple may wish to keep is the receipt of gifts. Experts would advise travel insurance to avoid the potential loss of such items while away.
