The travel agent always tries to sell us holiday insurance. How do I handle this situation?

Always have your travel insurance policy to hand when booking a holiday or trip. The travel agent is only doing their job in trying to sell you the policy of their affiliated insurer, and they have to make sure you have adequate insurance cover. Showing them our policy – which offers cover for the most common travel risks – should solve the problem. Many travel agencies insist on you signing to declare that you already have adequate insurance, and need to take note of your policy number – so having it to hand could save you some time.
