Holidaymakers who may be confused as to how best to protect their health abroad may be interested in some advice from research firm Defaqto.

The company has issued some tips on how not to breach insurance policies and what to do to ensure a happy holiday for everyone.

Handy hints include taking out an appropriate insurance policy and taking copies of all documents in case of emergency.

“You should take your policy with you so you know who to contact in an emergency. And always keep copies of receipts as you will need them if you need to make a claim,” said Brian Brown, head of insight at Defaqto.

The firm also recommended taking only as much money as is strictly necessary, as insurance may not cover above a certain amount.

Anyone travelling on flights to India may also be interested in advice provided by the Indax health website, which states that although mosquitoes are abundant in the South Asian country, most do not carry severe diseases and can be easily repelled by sprays and nets.

But ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. If you have booked a flight only where the ticket is not issued immediately, your flight will be protected under our ATOL.
