A man has revealed how Martin Lewis’ tip saved him £2,000 on his holiday.
Money saving expert shared Paul signal story with viewers of his ITV show tonight.
Paul explained that he fell ill before buying travel insurance for his trip to Spain, costing him £2,000.
After that, he decided to make a second attempt when he recovered and was fortunate to receive Martin’s advice.
He said: “Last summer before we booked the holiday, I followed Martin Lewis and he said get travel insurance when you book.
“Two days before we flew abroad, I collapsed at home and was admitted to the hospital with kidney stones.
“I thought there would be loads of questions and loads of forms but there weren’t.”
Three weeks later, the insurance company paid in full, allowing Paul to rebook the same trip so he could finally get the well-deserved rest.
He sent the show a clip from his getaway, saying: “Just an update for you Martin. He, we’re in Spain for your advice.
“We have the sea, the sun, the sand, and two thousand.”
Martin’s top advice is to buy ASAB travel insurance (as soon as you book) to protect you against anything that could force you to cancel at the last minute.
The personal finance guru’s show is back tonight with the second installment of a two-part special, this time focusing on summer vacation tips.
As well as travel insurance, he advises viewers on the best debit and credit cards to use both inside and outside the EU, and warns about an expiring health insurance card.
The show will return with a full series in October.
