Let’s be honest with each other for a while: when you think of travelling the world and seeing all those wonderful places that come across as printed postcards, you do not think of all the things that could possibly go wrong!
Why would you? After all, the whole point of taking a vacation is so you can take a break from your troubles and treat yourself to a bottle of tequila on warm, sunny weather and clear starlit night skies, a place where you don’t have to worry about how much a CT scan should cost you.
Now for all that you need to travel insurance. Yes! It’s a boring topic but demands serious thinking. How do you go about finding the right kind of travel insurance? Hold on, why would you even require travel insurance?
Travel insurance is very much like every other insurance you buy except that it lets you visit exotic locations on this planet free of worry. If you consider yourself to be a wanderer, then you MUST have a comprehensive cover every time you go out to experience the world. It’s practical, it’s safe, it gives you peace of mind and it is not even that expensive considering how much grief it can save you in the long run!
Finding the right kind of insurance is about more than just deciding which cover is affordable. You need to base your choice on a few key factors such as:
Your Specific Needs and Kind of Travel:
Do you prefer extreme travel experiences? Where do you like to go when you travel? How frequently do you travel? The answer to these questions will determine what kind of cover you will be needing- a comprehensive or selective cover.
What Kind of Coverage Does the Policy Offer?
The most comprehensive travel insurance policies tend to go all out and cover the following four main categories:
- Personal accident
- Travel inconveniences
- Medical expenses
- Emergency benefit
Keep an Eye on the Exclusions
The biggest and the most common mistake you can make when getting travel insurance is to assume that you’re covered for everything. Every travel insurance policy chosen has different tiers which are priced differently and every tier has exclusions and conditions.
