Now is the time to buy your Christmas & New Year Travel Insurance

You might already wrapped those presents for the festive season and not even gone out shopping  yet, but there is something that you should not leave to the last minute - Travel insurance and Car rental hire excess insurance.

Once you have started your holiday you can't take out travel insurance normally, so it is best to make arrangements early on.
A great way of saving money is to take an annual travel insurance policy and you can do the same with car hire excess insurance.

Quite often an annual car hire excess insurance policy will be a lot cheaper than paying for daily policies and of course far cheaper than having to buy one through one of those car hire companies that tries to make you buy one when you book your car hire or when you collect the vehicle.

These days people tend to take several breaks over the year and even a weekend away in Poland or Portugal should be covered so annual travel insurance does make sense and of course many people will soon be off on a skiing holiday as well.

Reasons why you should take out travel insurance:

  • Missed departure?
  • Lost your passport?
  • Personal money stolen?
  • Damaged your ski equipment?
  • Personal Accident?
  • Abandon your holiday before you leave the UK
  • Catastrophe — fire, flood, earthquake or storm
  • Medical Emergency — Hospital — Emergency Dental Treatment
  • Legal Advice
  • Mugging

  • At the jml Insurance website there are several insurance companies advertising their products including:

    Worldwideinsure, Questor Insurance, Quotezone,,,,  and - this is a different type of travel insurance - " to protect your holiday - Financial Failure Travel Insurance from as little as £5 per person"
    Find out more about Travel insurance products Here
    Find out more about Car Hire Excess  / Van Hire Excess / Motorhome Hire Excess and Minibus Hire Excess insurance products Here 
    So remember to make arrangements as soon as possible and wrap this up early.

    Financial Failure Travel Insurance Cover - Protect My Holiday

    In the current economic climate, being able to purchase financial failure protection is imperative.
    Some Travel Insurers incorporate this as part of their overall policy wording, but in the main most don’t offer this cover.
    It is important to remember that the civil aviation authorities ATOL scheme only applies if a flight plus another component part of the trip are part of the same booking. You can check if your trip is ATOL protected as you should receive a certificate which shows the name of the firm and their ATOL number. You can also check them on the ATOL register.
    As most people make their travel arrangements independently, there is no government protection against the financial failure of Airlines or other end suppliers you are booking with. Imagine being on holiday, to find the airline you have booked with has failed and you have no means of repatriation other than to try and rebook a return ticket with an alternative flight provider.
    The cost of a ticket in these circumstances can be up to three times more than the original ticket price. You could also find yourself in this position a few days before you are due to travel, and would then have to hastily try and find another provider, but again the cost will be far more than the original price paid.  You can purchase cover against this eventuality from a specialist Insurer offering stand-alone policies from as little as £5.00 per person travelling.
    Please click on the following link for full details of this. Cover can be paid for online and the policy documents are then emailed back to you instantly.

    Latest HomeLet Rental Index figures have just been released

    HomeLet one of the major UK Landlord and Tenant rental insurance companies has just released the August Rental index.

    According to their press release -

    Rents across the UK continued to rise during August, with this year’s trend of modest inflation continuing, according to the August  Rental Index.

    Tenants signing up to a new tenancy during August agreed to pay an average rent of £913 a month, a 3.1 per cent increase on the same month of 2015. 

    The pace of rent rises, while sustainable, is moderating. The 3.1 per cent recorded in August is comparable to annual increases of between 3.5 and 3.8 per cent over the previous four months. By contrast, annual rental inflation was running at close to 6 per cent this time last year.

    The August 2016 HomeLet Rental Index reveals that rents continue to rise in almost every area of the country, with 11 out of the 12 regions surveyed recording an increase over the year to the end of August. 

    Nevertheless, HomeLet’s regional trend analysis suggests that rental inflation has been more variable in certain areas of the country than others. London and the South-East in particular saw a larger dip in the pace of rent rises during March and April this year, at a time when buy-to-let investors were purchasing properties in larger numbers ahead of higher stamp duty rates that came into force at the beginning of the 2016-17 tax year.

    Why an Uxbridge letting agent thinks the EU is good for Landlords in Uxbridge


    Jeremy Wasden the owner of Belvoir Lettings in Uxbridge, Middlesex has posted the following on his website.

    Why I think the EU is good for Landlords in Uxbridge

    Going to wear my heart on my sleeve here and say that I think that the EU is good for local landlords, consequently good for me as a letting agent and also for the wider UK.
    So why is that?

    Economic Stability

    Providing economic stability allowing companies to grow and invest.  I don't think europe is perfect and we are out performing the continental markets.  Like landlords thinking of a property purchase, business and investment thrives on certainties which the EU is set to deliver by comparison to unknown alternatives. 

    Longer term I see unfettered access to the world's largest market as a key benefit of EU membership.  And our area has benefitted heaviliy from this.

    Heathrow / European Head Offices

    Hillingdon Borough is more likely to benefit from European trade being so close to one of our major ports, Heathrow. 

    We also benefit from many local European Head Offices which provide many high quality jobs such as those found in and around Uxbridge, Heathrow and of couse Stockley Park.  Could we benefit from more of these in future?  I think this is likely with continued EU membership.

    I accept however that Britain could trade successfully as an independent country.  We have some amazingly talented people in this country!
    And are we going to be better off if we can attract high quality people to the UK?

    Movement of People

    Free movement of people brings demand from tenants for property.  Be they people working locally or commuting in to London.

    This both works in helping to allow people to rent out their home as they go and work in Belgium for a few years for example or for tenants from Europe working in the UK wanting to rent property here.

    If we left trade would not cease and we would form new trading partnerships but there would be uncertainty.


    I find that most of the legislation that causes consternation for Landlords is from Parliament.  Such as recentl changes to Section 21 notices and deposit protection legislation which originates in this Scepter'd Isle, as does changes in SDLT and taxation of mortgage interest.

    The EU does not by any means have a monopoly on poor legislation.

    If you as a landlord think the other way I would be happy to hear the counter argument.
    Contact him here

    Notes: We have received permission from the writer Jeremy Wasden  to re-publish this article here. His business is in Uxbridge where Boris Johnson the present Mayor of London is the Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip. Boris Johnson  is currently very much involved with the leave the EU campaign.

    Editor's Comment: This is a very interesting article. In my experience EU residents in the south Bucks / east Berks area have been excellent tenants. Apart from working in the community, by renting they are keeping the local buy to let market exceptionally active.

    Regarding Jeremy's comments on rental legislation. It is easy for a landlord to blame it all on Brussels and the EU (or even Europe as many call it). We have very complex rental regulations in the UK these days and more ahead. Where do they come from? Parliament in Westminster, The Welsh Assembly, The Northern Ireland Assembly and the Scottish Parliament. 

    If you look at rental legislation in other European countries and EU Member states, it is all individual to the Government of the particular country. They all make their own rental legislation.

    One piece of legislation that is common is the efficiency of energy report. So it might be a Diagnostic de Performance Energ├ętique - DPE in France, a Building Energy Rating - BER in Ireland or an Energy Performance Certificate - EPC in the UK.

Gallagher group, offering members the ability to quote and bind cover for properties in more than 40 countries ,with legal expenses insurance included at no additional charge.

    Further benefits of the scheme include a UK-based claims team, English-speaking loss adjusters, and cover for owners of private use second residences as well as those that are let out on a short or long-term basis in the UK and overseas. 

    Backed by Lloyd’s syndicates and A-rated insurer capacity, the holiday home scheme enables BIBA members to secure public liability of £5million and buildings cover of £1million as standard. Cover can be transacted via a bespoke online platform, providing reassurance of immediate cover, and the scheme carries no minimum volume requirements.

    Mark Morgan, Managing Director of Intasure, said: “With around 1.7 million Britons owning a second home, whether in the UK or overseas, demand for holiday home cover continues to be strong. And yet finding flexible and comprehensive protection for such valuable assets — particularly when properties are often unoccupied and especially when they are located overseas — can be problematic. Our ability to protect homes in 44 countries gives us an unmatched footprint and enables BIBA brokers to provide their customers with much-needed peace of mind.”

    He added: “We also place a strong emphasis on the customer journey — and our high levels of delegated authority enable us to respond and resolve problems promptly when they arise, with 90% of claims handled in-house through our UK-based support team.”

    Mike Hallam, BIBA’s Head of Technical Services, said: “We are pleased to offer this scheme along with its exclusive benefits to members and its wide footprint of countries that it covers.  This should satisfy all member needs in this niche market sector.”
