Could travel to Egypt invalidate your holiday insurance?

Could travel to Egypt invalidate your holiday insurance?

Experts are warning that in some cases, travelling to Egypt following the recent unrest in the country could invalidate some holiday insurance policies. After the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s issued a warning to tourists to not visit specific areas affected by the protests such as Cairo, Suez and Luxor, failure to heed this official warning by visiting these trouble spots could in many cases, invalidate your holiday insurance, which means you could be left with a hefty medical bill should you become ill or injured during your trip. The coastal regions of Egypt are said to operating as normal and are largely unaffected by the political unrest in the country. But despite this, insurance experts are warning travellers to Egypt to contact their travel insurance provider before leaving the country to ensure their cover still stands if they choose to visit the country during the coming weeks. Resorts on the Red Sea such as Sharm-el-Sheikh are thought to be relatively unaffected by the riots as the government say there is considerable distance between these coastal regions, and the cities and towns where the protests have been at their most ferocious. Are you visiting Egypt in the next few weeks or just arrived back from a break on the Red Sea? If so, let us know your thoughts and experiences on travel to Egypt in the comments box below.
