If you're travelling with hand luggage only, you can now save 10% on the price of your travel insurance policy with our new hand luggage only policy type!
Why are you introducing this policy?
Airlines have began to charge customers for handling baggage on flights more and more frequently leading to a 233% increase in Brits travelling with hand luggage only to save money.
The average travel insurance claim for a customer with hand luggage only is lower than claims with a hold bag as there's an obvious lower risk of losing their luggage. This means there's less risk on our travel insurance policies as claims for lost baggage are less likely and so we're passing on this saving to YOU by introducing a lower priced policy for this trip type!
Benefits of travelling with hand luggage only
Our customers have recognised a number of benefits to travelling with hand luggage only:
- Saves money on the cost of your travel insurance with our exclusive policy
- Saves money by avoiding costs to check-in hold baggage
- Avoids risk of lost baggage on your trip
- Saves time checking in and departing
Why Should You Book This Policy?
Essential Travel have recognised the increasing costs of travelling with hold luggage and the changing trend in travellers behaviour to avoid these costs.
This policy will hopefully help ease the load and save travellers some extra money for those who are willing and planning to travel hold baggage free.
