LONDON, November 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
With summer well and truly behind us, winter sports enthusiasts are embracing the snow season and sun seekers looking for hotter climes to escape to. To protect their holiday investments, the savviest of holidaymakers should now also be shopping around for travel insurance, according to leading price comparison website comparethemarket.com.
Previous research from comparethemarket.com has shown that many customers purchase their travel insurance just before they go on holiday and therefore miss out on a number of key benefits, including cancellation & curtailment cover - which applies right from the point of purchase. By getting their cover in place early on, smart travellers will help ensure that they're not out of pocket should they be forced to cancel their trip.
Jeremy Moll, Commercial Director at comparethemarket.com said: "Travel insurance is obviously an essential purchase for people preparing for a winter escape. But holidaymakers should plan ahead and purchase insurance well in advance of their travel date. Leaving it until the last minute could mean losing out on key protections, especially in the case of cancellations."
comparethemarket.com works with leading travel insurance providers including InsureandGo and The AA in order to give their customers highly competitive quotes on single trip, multi trip or annual cover for individuals, families or business.
