Brean, added, “Group stays are a great way to keep costs down when away, all while ensuring you can stay in some of the most exciting and beautiful places in the world with some of your closest friends and family.

“However, it can be all too easy to forget travel insurance or think you don’t need it if you’re in a group or the provider offers secure booking and peace of mind. But travel insurance covers everything from flight cancellations and accommodation issues, to medical emergencies and lost or stolen luggage and valuables, so it really is worth investing in – even if you’re only going for a long weekend.”
