Myth: Travel insurance is more expensive the further away you travel
Your holiday destination is a factor, but it's not the distance from the UK that's important and you could save money by choosing your destination wisely.
A common misconception about travel insurance is that the price is based on how far away from the UK you are travelling.
This is not the case.
Your holiday destination can make a big difference to the price of your insurance, but it is not due to how far away it is. It is actually related to the cost of medical treatment for a British national in that country.
For instance travel insurance for a holiday in the USA will generally cost more than travel insurance for a trip to Australia.
Even within Europe the country you are travelling to can make a difference to the cost of insurance, with travel insurance for Spain often costing more than travel insurance for Greece or Italy.
The good news is that you can keep the cost of travel insurance down by choosing your destination wisely.
If you are worried about the cost of insurance, why not do some quotes and compare prices for different destinations before you book your holiday?
