Is travel insurance a must-buy for a holiday?MoneySaving Poll Results

We believe you should get travel insurance ASAB (As Soon As you've Booked) as you're then covered if you have to cancel any time BEFORE your holiday begins. Yet whether you're going abroad or staying in the UK, do you risk going without it?

For more help, see our Cheap Travel Insurance guide.
