Poles Opt for Safe Holidays

Staying Safe

Staying Safe

Polish people, like everyone else, want to feel safe during vacation time. Increasingly more tourists are purchasing private insurance policies. Holidaymakers are slowly learning that private holiday insurance is a better idea than the free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or insurance acquired from a travel agent. This year, approximately two-thirds of vacationing Poles decided to take out private holiday insurance. The number of people who have chosen private policies has increased by 10% from last year, according to Gazeta Wyborcza. 63% of respondents will buy their own insurance for their vacation, according to the “Turystyka po polsku” (Tourism in Polish) research poll, conducted by Liberty Direct in cooperation with ARC Rynek i Opinia. “Many tourists are simply not aware of the costs of medical expenses abroad, which can be extremely high if we are not insured,” says Ilona Tomaszewska, a travel insurance expert at Liberty Direct.
