I’ve never booked my own travel insurance or anything before and Im just wondering if you get a leaflet or anything or if you have to wait for it to come like your passport?
As soon as possible is the simple answer. What would you do if you or a family member became ill or injured themselves and you had to cancel your holiday? Without having previously taken out travel insurance you would lose the total cost of your flight/holiday.
This is something you have to do for yourself unless you do it at the time of booking with the airline or tour operator. There’s a great variety of travel insurance available on-line and for around £10.00p you should find adequate cover for one week. Make sure you include cancellation cover.
