Get your travel insurance as soon as you book, as Martin Lewis says

We’re in prime time holiday booking season. Now Christmas is out the way everyone is dreaming of slick city tours, relaxing beach breaks, and general all round sunnier days. Once you’ve booked your holiday, most of us sit back and count down the days until we’re up in the air, but as Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis has recently said, ‘get travel insurance ASAB – as soon as you book’.
