Forget the toilet roll: Coronavirus should have you stockpiling TRAVEL INSURANCE

The virus is already leading to holidays being cancelled left, right and centre.

Coronavirus is bad news for most of us, but it’s big business for Travel Insurance companies, with sales increasing 277% in the last seven days according to GoCompare figures, as concerns around the virus continue to grow.

If you’ve already booked a holiday and you don’t have travel insurance, get cover now. Make sure you check with the provider that you’ll be covered in the event of a Coronavirus cancellation - this could enable you to claim compensation in the event of your flight being delayed or cancelled.

Emergency medical cover is another crucial box to tick. In the worst case scenario of you contracting something nasty abroad, it’s worth making sure your insurer will pay out some of the costs - without too brutal an excess.

And if you managed to arrange your travel insurance before any UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice about not travelling to a specific region - particularly China - then you would be able to claim in the event that your holiday needs to be cancelled.

But be careful: If you’re visiting countries with growing numbers of coronavirus cases, but which the FCO has not officially warned against visiting, you may well not be covered against a possible cancellation.

Coronavirus is likely to disrupt a huge amount of travel over the coming months. If you’re considering travelling internationally, it is absolutely vital that you purchase travel insurance.
