Millions of Brits may have travelled uninsured in lockdown

Analysis of air passenger traffic suggests that in November more than 1.4 million Brits travelled to destinations to which the government had advised against all non-essential travel.

Intermediary Medical Travel Compared said this was on top of the 1.9 million Brits who may have travelled uninsured in July, August and September.

Tommy Lloyd, manging director of Medical Travel Compared, said: “By travelling outside of the Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office advice, travellers are taking a huge risk with their health and finances by travelling to other countries.”

He added: “Discovering that over 3 million travellers may have travelled uninsured in July, August, September and November is very worrying. Travel insurance is an essential element of taking a holiday, especially now when the whole world is experiencing the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic.”
