do we need travel insurance?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
going to europe for a holiday, multiple countries, all in the EU so technically covered by E111, would you recommend getting travel insurance as well?

last few times ive been away i've not bothered, but because i'll be doing a bit of travelling this time im considering getting some.

i know now that its law to have insurance for going on charter flights, but that doesnt apply to us.

just looking for opinions and any recommendations

    check out who you bank with they may be able to provide you with travel insurance, its always handy if you become ill or suffer an injury as any hospital treatment you recieve will be covered.

    Europe travel insurance is only going to be about a tenner, why not, just in case.

    I went to Paris recently and took out insurance. I wouldn't leave the country without it tbh.
