It’s Easter...already?!

WITH Christmas a distant memory and the filling of local supermarkets shelves with Easter eggs, many of us are looking forward to the next Bank Holiday weekend.

Easter this year falls earlier than usual (Easter Sunday is 31 March) meaning that spring will have just sprung in Northern Ireland and Europe will be starting to heat up. And so, the Easter holidays are a popular time to travel. For those working, taking four days annual leave around the Bank Holidays can mean enjoying 10 days out of the office.

So for those considering getting away over Easter, Age NI Enterprises urges all travellers not to travel without insurance – even if they only go on a short break.

Ron Warwick, General Manager of Age NI Enterprises said, ‘If you are looking to get away over the Easter break, make sure you shop around for travel insurance that suits your individual needs and offers good value for money. This is particularly important for people in later life who often have trouble in finding the right cover for their needs because many providers impose upper age limits.

‘Always read the small print, check for any hidden charges, cancellation fees or exceptions that could invalidate a claim. We also advise customers to be completely honest about any medical conditions they suffer from. It is essential that all the information in the medical declaration is accurate so that customers are fully protected during their travels.’
