TD biggest cause of concern

Travel insurance

Being mugged, bad accommodation and losing your passport are common worries of the British holidaymaker. But, according to a poll of 4,000 British adults, commissioned by airport parking firm www.parkat.co.uk, what Brits fear the most when abroad is traveller’s diarrhoea. The poll found that 54 per cent of those polled were most terrified of getting traveller’s diarrhoea while on holiday. Michael Hope, marketing director for Parkat, said: “A bad dose of food poisoning could put travellers out of action for five days, ultimately ruining the holiday. A lot of travellers will have experienced an upset stomach of sorts while abroad. In most cases it can be a horrible experience.”
