Don't forget to pack the insurance, holiday makers urged

As many as 20 per cent of travelers go on holiday without travel insurance, according to insurance provide Churchill.Trying to save money by traveling uninsured could cost holidaymakers a fortune in the long-run - the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) reports that an air ambulance in the Canaries could cost as much as £12,000 to16,000 or a scheduled flight, stretcher and medical escort home from the Mediterranean as much as £6,000.The FCO website warns: "You could fall ill or have an accident; you could have money or luggage stolen; your visit might be cancelled or cut short through injury or illness; your family may need to fly out to be with you if there is a serious incident."Abi Clark, spokesperson for Churchill Travel Insurance, said: "It's easy for sun-seekers to get excited about snapping up a great holiday deal, and then forget about making a saving on their travel insurance. "Not only is price important, but the level of cover can make a difference too when it comes to making a claim."
