We recommend that you purchase insurance to cover your holiday. If you travel without
adequate travel insurance and require our assistance whilst on one of our holidays, we
will claim from you any expenses we incur on your behalf, which would otherwise have
been covered by insurance. It is not compulsory on tours within the
UK, but is now compulsory for you to have suitable insurance for travel outside the UK.
If you chose to purchase travel insurance through Roberts Travel Group, please contact our Holiday Department for further information.
