Families Seek Savings On Travel Insurance As Cost Of Summer Holidays Mount …

LONDON, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ –
Many families are expected to head to price comparison websites such as comparethemarket.com to find savings on their travel insurance following research which shows the staggering cost of school holidays.

According to a study commissioned by Travelodge[1], the average family spends £351 on childcare, £504 on days out and £665 on additional transport and food. The report found that 53 per cent of families are planning to holiday in the UK this year to save money. Less than a third of parents reported that they were able to afford more than one break a year.

For those planning to go on holiday, both in the UK and abroad, travel insurance remains a necessary if somewhat begrudged expense. In a bid to avoid overpaying on this purchase, families are expected to use price comparison websites, including comparethemarket.com, to compare quotes and find the best travel policies available.
