Money Box Live: A hazardous year for UK holidaymakers.

This has been a hazardous year for British holidaymakers, who've had to endure terror attacks, a failed coup in Turkey and the recent collapse of travel firm Low Cost Holidays. To make matters worse, the pound has fallen against most major currencies, meaning your break abroad will cost you more than you first budgeted for. What are your rights if your break goes wrong? What will your insurance pay out for and what's not covered? And will you be avoiding popular summer getaway destinations like Turkey and Egypt in favour of other countries?

Joining Louise Cooper will be: Bob Atkinson, Travel Supermarket; Sean Tipton, ABTA; and Kate Huet, Association of Travel Insurance Intermediaries.
