Now as my wife is always telling me – “MAKE SURE YOU READ THE SMALL PRINT”
Good advice which would have served an Australian tourist well.
Whilst holidaying in Mali, BLAKE GIBB from Adelaide crashed the scooter he was riding into a cement wall after overshooting a turn. Seems like it’s not just reading the small print he’s not good at.
The crash left Blake with multiple skull fractures and needing him to be rushed to Bali’s International Medical Centre.
Placed in a coma he was subsequently transferred to a hospital in Adelaide.
Learning of her son’s condition, Blake’s mother contacted the travel insurer FREELY who agreed to pay for Blake’s hospital bills and transfer back to Australia – on the condition that she cover the bills if the claim was then denied.
Unfortunately the claim was denied because Blake had failed to tick the box for additional motor cycle cover. Consequently the family is now facing a bill for £170,000.
A spokesperson for the insurer said they were pleased that they’d been able to get him back to Australia and wished him well for his recovery.
Being a Tuesday I was joined once more by Margaret Mills who took as on over to Saffron Walden for a glimpse at the remains of the castle which once guarded the town, then known simply as Walden.
If you missed what Margaret told me to can listen again here:-
I hope you can join me again next week,
