What insurance do you need for a staycation in the UK?

Since the fall in the pound after the Brexit vote, more and more Brits are choosing to stay home for the holidays, with staycations soaring by over 23%. But if you’re thinking of holidaying close to home, will you need travel insurance?

Are you already covered?

Before buying UK travel insurance, check to see if you already have appropriate cover in place:

  • Your contents insurance policy may include ‘all-risks cover’ for personal possessions that are lost or stolen outside the home. 
  • You may also be able to add ‘away from home’ cover to your home insurance for a little extra cost.  
  • If you already have an annual travel insurance policy check to see if it covers personal possessions loss, and cancellation costs for a UK holiday. If it already provides the cover you need, you might not need to take out a separate policy.

If you’re into extreme sports, dedicated sports insurance can offer a higher level of cover than standard travel insurance.
