This time of year, you can be forgiven if buying travel insurance for your trip wasn’t at the top of your Christmas shopping list. No worries. Globelink will get you and your loved ones covered with our Already Travelling policy.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas - and literally millions of us are ditching work, dodging the shops and heading off to spend the holidays with family and friends.
Are you one of the lucky ones who has already left for your festive break? If you have already left your home country, don’t risk a Christmas Calamity, because mishaps and accidents do happen. With Globelink, unlike most other travel insurance companies, you can still buy travel insurance while already abroad.
No one wants to think about things going wrong, especially over the festive season, but what if your luggage goes missing with all those carefully chosen Christmas gifts? Or your flight is delayed? Or worse still, cancelled? And what would you do if you have a medical problem and need to find a hospital and pay for treatment? Travel insurance can provide financial compensation and practical support in the event of these kind of problems. Which means you can get on with enjoying your break faster and reduce stress.
With over 100 people per minute travelling through London Heathrow and similar numbers through other main European hub airports, you will definitely want to keep that festive feeling alive with the peace of mind that you have your travel insurance sorted, so if things go wrong you have somewhere to turn.
If you are travelling over Christmas, please take a look at our ultimate Christmas safety and security guide. And while you are away enjoying different sites and sounds, don’t forget to make a list and check it twice! Planning in advance will help you stay more relaxed and enjoy your break to the full. The more you plan the smoother the trip should go, from arranging your travel, to the items you need to pack and itinerary when you arrive. Wherever you go, embrace local traditions to make the most of your chosen destination. Most countries have the most beautiful celebrations and traditions during the festive season, whether its midnight mass in Italy and sumptuous fish banquets on Christmas Eve, or a barbie on the beach in Australia!
