When choosing or planning a holiday it makes sense to plan carefully and research your chosen destination.
Specialist providers often provide package breaks in popular hotels and can advise on things to do at your destination. Try ShortBreakMarket for a wide range of great value package breaks.
Just turning up can cause all manner of problems and difficulties when you find that your hotel is miles away from the attractions. It could be even worse if you like city life and end up in the middle of nowhere or conversely if you wanted a quiet country break and found yourself in the center of a bustling metropolis!
We also recommend you take out holiday insurance.
Policy costs vary depending on your destination and departure point for example if you live in the UK then going to Europe mans your travel insurance is cheaper than it would be if you were travelling to the US or Canada. If you are based in the USA then cover will be cheaper for nearby states and cost more if you venture over to Europe (we strongly recommend you visit Europe as there are some stunning places to see and they are steeped in history.)
The longer you stay the greater the risk of illness so this can also add to the cost of your policy. Choosing a flexible insurer that is flexible is half the battle and when you find a broker, adviser or insurer you can really talk to makes all the difference and really helps make taking out insurance a lot easier.
Disclosable medical conditions
Medical conditions that require disclosure are outlined below.
- Heart conditions
- Cancers & Tumors
- Stroke history
- Kidney and Lung disease
- Heart attack

Any failure to tell insurers about these and any other condition could invalidate your policy and leave you without cover. We strongly recommend you discuss your full medical history with your policy provider and get the approval of your doctor to travel.
