    Question your review please.

    When you take out travel insurance, you usually just accept the little form which the clerk pushes across the counter. You fill it all [1] out, make out a cheque and, [2] then return, you receive a thin sheet of paper with very small print. But nobody ever expects that anything could really [3] go wrong. It always [4] happens to someone else! Well, my family is that someone else!

    I [5] would never forget the phone call from my daughter who was [6] on holiday abroad. It began, “Mummy, something awful’s happened.” Her hotel room [7] had been burgled and all her luggage stolen. Fortunately, she was insured and she reported the matter [8] to the police at the time. The insurance company; however, wanted not only the police reported, [9] but also receipts for everything stolen [10] which they would recognize her claim. [11] Seen nearly all her clothes were from a chain store, we had no receipts. Other items stolen had [12] been gifts-a camera from her grandparents two years [13] ago, a necklace from her boyfriend. It took [14] about nearly three months of writing letters to get any offer from the company at all.

    A fight like this teaches you one very important lesson-before you take out insurance, make [15] sure you read the small print!
