It’s everyone’s guilty pleasure and this year is no exception…
Vocal warmups are underway as singers across Europe prepare to represent their nation, with the hopes of being crowned winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
The 63rd Eurovision contest will take place in Portugal, the home country of 2017 winner Salvador Sobral, on Saturday 12th May 2018.
Although many will be watching from the comfort of their living rooms, those lucky enough to have purchased a ticket and are heading to the Altice Arena, Lisbon will be able to experience the atmosphere first hand.
But with tickets costing upwards of £300 for the grand final, what if something happens and they need to cancel their trip?
As long as they have taken out a suitable travel insurance policy that covers the reason for cancellation the cost of the holiday will be reimbursed. It is also worth bearing in mind there are only a few travel insurance policies on the market that will offer to cover the cost of pre-paid tickets that cannot be refunded from another source. Likewise, some policies will offer to cover the cost of tickets if you need to curtail your trip and cannot make the event but check your policy wording as this cover isn’t routinely available.
Fingers crossed, you will not have to use your travel insurance but it is better to be prepared than left out of pocket.
So, which country is your money on?
