|Leeds is a renowned Stag and Hen party destination, with a vibrant wealth of pubs, clubs and restaurants. If you are Stag or Hen virgin, some friendly advice – things can get messy. From spillage of food and drink over that special party outfit, to loss of cameras and baggage, little accidents are perhaps a little more prone to occur when the celebratory bash is in full swing - this can lead to some unexpected extra expenses at the end of the big weekend out.
Many people think that holiday or travel insurance is something that you take out when you are travelling abroad – and indeed, such policies are a must if you are venturing anywhere overseas. However, what most people don’t realise is that a good single trip travel insurance policy, like that offered by, for example, AA Travel Insurance, will cover you for a multitude of eventualities should an accident or incident occur – both in and outside the U.K – and the trip can last for up to 185 days!
By 'cover', we mean of course that you will be insured against things like the cost of cancellation up to £5000, and personal accident cover up to £25,000. 185 days may be a little long for a Stag or Hen party, but whether you are heading to Leeds for a Stag party, or heading to Australia, it is worth remembering that things can happen at any time, and it is good to have the peace of mind of knowing that you are covered.
It may well make sense to take out an annual travel insurance policy if you will be taking a trip away more than once a year; so this policy can cover both the family holiday, and your Hen party high jinks! Make sure that you have a look at what your policy covers, as if you will be involved in more active pursuits than eating and drinking – skiing for example – you may need to look for more specialist cover (like a Winter Sports insurance package).
It is always a good idea to shop around when looking to purchase a product like holiday insurance and the easiest way to do this by far is to have a look at the plethora of insurance providers online. Have a look at the websites of the big established companies like AA travel insurance to get an idea of what is on offer in terms of holiday insurance, as well as looking in the obvious places like online comparison sites.
