The World’s Strangest Travel Insurance Claims


Ever had your clothes stolen by monkeys?

In our latest blog post, we’ve decided to list some of the most curious and spurious travel insurance claims ever put in by holiday makers.  Take a look at our favourites below.

  • A pensioner, whose false teeth fell out while he vomited over the side of a cruise ship, put in a claim to his travel insurers for new dentures under “lost baggage”.
  • A couple holidaying in Malaysia returned to their lodge to find that their clothes had been stolen and scattered throughout the rainforest….by monkeys.
  • A man claimed for his daughter’s bad haircut. She singed her hair on the oven in their apartment and so had paid to have her hair cut during the holiday – needless to say it turned out badly.
  • A holidaymaker in Sri Lanka needed hospital treatment after a coconut fell on her head while she was reading in the shade below.
