Holiday season heats up travel insurance

a�?Holiday

Record numbers of holidaymakers are searching for the best deals on travel insurance at price comparison website Confused.com.

Travel insurance enquires at the site are up 63% compared to this time last year a�� a trend Confused.com expects to see continue throughout the summer.

Single trip insurance is proving the most popular, with seven in ten holidaymakers budgeting carefully by searching out cover for a specific holiday rather than a full year.

Confused.com believes the upsurge in enquires is largely due to concerns over swine flu.

a�?It’s likely that the increased level of interest in travel insurance is in-part due to the high profile swine flu situation,a�? said Steve Williams, Confused.com head of travel insurance.

a�?It’s clear is that consumers are becoming more aware of the benefits and peace of mind travel insurance can bring.a�?

Williams added that travellers looking for a bargain should search around for the best insurance deal online rather than purchasing cover from their travel agent.
