World Cup complacency warning for travel insurance customers

English football fans lucky enough to be going to the World Cup in South Africa this summer have been warned to ensure that their personal belongings are safeguarded against the many dangers abroad.

When out and about, or even just emerging from the aeroplane in Cape Town, travellers have been told to ensure that any valuables are kept in hand luggage by Axa. This is particularly important when it comes to any football game tickets, the value of which are probably covered by travel insurance quotes system, but replacements are not likely to be offered if they are lost in the hold of the aircraft.

The travel insurance firm explained that any excessive drinking or drug-taking could also invalidate insurance cover. Although Axa has also warned that the sun can be just as much a health risk on hotter days.

Travellers that arrange a hire car to take them around are no less safe either. Axa has warned customers to ensure that they keep doors locked at all times, wherever they are to watch a game. Equally, keeping valuable items out of the sight of thieves on car seats is also important.

For those travel insurance customers that intend to rely on public transport during their visit, Axa has recommended that they stick exclusively to licensed taxis or official public transport.

Axa head of travel Alison Patrick said: "Every year we see lives ruined by holiday misadventures with the worst of these costing hundreds of thousands of pounds. Insurance can't stop these things happening, but it can at least ease the financial burden for the victims and their families."

Earlier this week, managing hire car broker Holiday Autos director Stuart Nassos explained that tourists could face shortages of supply this year. He added that demand is likely to be particularly high in South Africa, owing to the World Cup.
