I posted the other day about the volcanic ash cloud that's currently enveloping big chunks of Europe. I'm becoming increasingly worried about the fate of my holiday as the airports continue to be closed, and aeroplanes continue to be grounded. Day 4 of this is nearly over now; and we're headed into Day 5 and the flights continue to be cancelled.
Anyways, this is not what this post is about. Sort of.
The other night I realised that I needed to sort out travel insurance pronto. I am silly and impractical about a LOT of things, but one thing I always make sure I do is sort out insurance before I go anywhere. I did a search on my email inbox to find out who I had got my previous policy through and when it ended. As I had went on holiday a week later last year, and had taken out a year's policy, I figured the current one might JUST cover me.
I looked at the dates on the email, and was rather surprised to see it would cover me until the 15th May. That made no sense. I'd went on holiday on the 9th May last year, why would a year long policy cover me for 53 weeks?
When I looked at the date the policy started, it all made sense. The policy WAS a year long after all.
I had somehow managed to book my travel insurance to begin the day I was coming BACK from my holiday last May, not the day I WENT on holiday.
It's taken me a year to realise I booked the wrong dates and went to Rhodes without any travel insurance.
Thank GOODNESS nothing bad happened on that trip!
What a moron I am . . .
