As more countries are added to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) quarantine list, many Britons are turning to a trusty UK holiday to make the most of what’s left of the summer and reduce their chances of having to self-isolate after a well-deserved break.

Recent reports have revealed that the likes of Asda, John Lewis, and Halfords have seen huge increases in the number of people buying camping equipment as demand for camping holidays, in particular, surge.

Camping has become a popular choice for Britons looking to get away, while still keeping their social distance from other holidaymakers. And as the cost of a UK holiday soars, it’s also great for those who fancy on holiday on a budget.

However, while camping holidays may not be as pricey as the likes of hotels, Airbnb, or caravan holidays, there’s still a chance that costs could add up if things go wrong, which is why, even if you are ‘only’ camping, buying the correct travel insurance policy is important.

Staycation travel insurance policies not only protect you should your camping equipment get lost or damaged, but many also provide cover for any cash, values, or electrical items that get lost, stolen, or accidentally damaged during your trip too!

With little storage to keep your valuables locked away, it’s so important that you have the right insurance to protect any pricey personal possessions – whether it’s through your home or travel insurance!

Benefits of a staycation insurance policy include:

  • Cancellation and curtailment cover
  • Property damage cover
  • Personal possessions cover
  • Vehicle breakdown
  • Attraction or event cancellation

We completely understand that travel insurance isn’t the most exciting thing when preparing for a holiday, but you’d kick yourself if you were left with a hefty dent in your pocket for the sake of a couple of pounds.
