LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 4, 2013) - Asda research reveals that a massive 72% of mums feel they have most of the responsibility for running the household and family life.
Whether cooking, cleaning, food shopping or family holidays - mums are actively involved in all aspects of running the home.
The research shows that 51% of mums are in charge of booking holidays compared to a generation ago when 36% were responsible for family holidays.*
There are a number of ways to buy a holiday, however; going online to book has become the most common form of purchasing a holiday, as well as the purchasing of additional extras such as travel insurance. New research shows that 54% of travel insurance is now arranged on online.**
Why do you need travel insurance?
Travel insurance is typically designed to protect your finances and covers a range of possibilities such as overseas medical bills, passport theft and cancelled flights.
Figures show that 53% of the country is planning a holiday before the end of the year, yet over half have no travel insurance whatsoever.
Worryingly, 13 million people are without travel insurance despite having a holiday planned in the coming months. Of those who do take out cover, a third of them travel without enough protection.
Kids and grandkids go free with Asda Money travel insurance. You can cover up to seven children without paying a penny more, allowing you to enjoy your holiday without the extra expense.
