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).
The organisation is urging holidaymakers to check their policies before leaving and make sure they are covered for the essentials such as lost luggage and medical expenses.
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."
Finding an affordable policy which offers protection for "everything under the sun" will be difficult, so travellers should focus the areas they want cover for, he added.
Warm weather is the most important factor for tourists when choosing a holiday destination, it has been revealed.
In a recent survey carried out by flight search engine Skyscanner, 20 per cent of people said the weather influenced their decisions.
A further 17 per cent said that price is important, while 13 per cent said they like to travel to destinations where they can experience interesting and exotic cultures.
Barry Smith, Skyscanner co-founder and director, said the poll demonstrates that Brits are as keen as ever to escape the gloomy weather and jet abroad to sunny destinations such as Spain.
