Holidaymakers looking to jet off overseas this Christmas for luxury holidays in Spain have been reminded that travel insurance is not an optional extra.
The British Insurance Brokers Association (Biba) has claimed that while travel insurance is always vital, it is even more important for travellers going on adventure holidays.
Graeme Trudgill technical and corporate affairs executive of Biba added that medical costs can reach £20,000 for holidaymakers who get injured on holiday without insurance.
"We would say that travel insurance is as important as your suitcase the costs are enormous if you go abroad and you have a medical injury," he added.

"[Executive lounges] are a great alternative to the main airport departure lounge for passengers who simply want to relax or work prior to boarding a flight," commented Arthur Dodgson, chief executive officer of Go-Ahead Aviation Division.

La Manga is a luxury holiday resort in Spain and while its many beaches make it perfectly equipped for those who wish to laze their days away with a good book and a fully charged iPod, its adventure sports facilities are second to none.
While it may be hard for holidaymakers to tear themselves away from the region's golden beaches, there is a world to be explored underwater and diving can be a great way to get acquainted with the Costa Calida.
Visitors to the La Manga Club Resort can discover the submerged secrets of the coast with Adventure Divers, a dive centre in the La Manga village of Las Lomas.
The centre is owned and run by Professional Association of Diving Instructors-accredited staff and offers a range of diving courses for different levels of experience, making it ideal for those on family holidays in La Manga.

Recent CAA figures show that the number of annual passengers travelling through UK regional airports has surpassed 100 million - roughly three times the amount that flew from regional airports in 1990.
"One of the main factors is that the London airports are becoming increasingly busy and as a result of that, more services are being offered from the regional airports," commented Chris Mason, spokesperson for the CAA.
