LONDON, September 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Figures released today by the price comparison website comparethemarket.com revealed a record interest in travel insurance quotes in early August, suggesting families were taking last minute breaks before the children returned to school in September.
As people were filled with the excitement of a foreign holiday, the peak also demonstrates an increasing understanding of the importance of travel insurance and that heading to price comparison sites, such as comparethemarket.com, can help you find not only the right insurance, but the cheapest insurance that won't eat into limited amounts of holiday money.
Jeremy Moll, Commercial Director at comparethemarket.com said: "At comparethemarket.com we make it easy to compare travel insurance prices and packages to take the hassle out of shopping for insurance. With July and August proving a bit of a wash out it's not surprising we saw an increase in travel insurance policy quotes at the beginning of August."
