Holiday travel insurance - the best in Europe

Money may not be a barrier to this festive ritual in the UK, but in other parts of the world people are more keen to get a grasp of risk.

“There is potentially a great deal of positive interest in staying dry and smiling,” says Anthony Freedman, a risk management adviser at Chartered Institute of Risk Management (CIRM). “However, the approaches still vary quite greatly from country to country, so there isn’t one that’s right for everybody.”

Without temperatures a lot cooler than Russia or France, visitors to the UK are heading for a riskier beach holiday than in any other country.

If you’re planning to take your children on a school holiday abroad and they’re older than seven years, consider having a holiday where they’re far from crowds.

“Anywhere where there’s a lot of people, you need to be very diligent about your activities,” says Scott Goldberg, marketing and communications director at Parental Control.

Experts also suggest having a family preparedness plan. Talking through options when the kids get a fever, and making sure a bottle and hand sanitizer are nearby.
