Brits urged to 'check insurance policies'

Brits taking holidays to Spain and other overseas destinations should ensure they have adequate travel insurance cover, according to the Association of British Insurers (ABI).

ABI spokesman Malcolm Tarling commented: "They should ensure, before they sign on the dotted line or click 'I accept' with their mouse online, that they should actually understand what they are covered for."
