– Foreign and Commonwealth Office Minister Mark Simmonds
Many people travel abroad without insurance and that means if they are injured or fall ill it could be very expensive, it could even be a matter of life and death.
Many don't realise that the Government will not pay their medical bills abroad or pay for repatriation.
I strongly urge everyone to take out comprehensive travel insurance so they can enjoy their holiday without risking their health or their savings.
Young Brits are putting their health and pockets at risk by failing to get adequate holiday insurance or check they are properly covered, according to new research.
