Spokesperson for Sainsbury’s Travel Insurance advised people to be more honest regarding their medical conditions on cover documents.
The Manager of the division Scott Gorman said that as the cost of medical treatment overseas is extremely high, people should be having coverage, keeping in mind any possibility of accident or mishap on their holiday.
He further explained that giving the necessary details of a pre-existing condition lightly due to carelessness, can cost people unexpectedly high, if unfortunately some accident occurs.
Behaving irresponsibly and traveling with “invalidated cover or no insurance at all” can prove a trouble for the travelers later, so, he said that it is highly advisable that one should be clear about the situation.
It was revealed in a research by Sainsbury's Travel Insurance that 500,000 Brits went abroad last year with one or the other medical condition and their insurers were not aware of it.
Also, the firm suggested that people should save money during vacation by making use of cash passport prepaid currency card.
