Is Travel Insurance Necessary When Traveling Abroad?

For some of us planning a trip involves a lot of time, effort and sacrifice. It means cutting back in expenses, saving, and making adjustments just to be able to give ourselves 5 days of pampering at the beach. All this can go down the drain if even the slightest detail goes wrong. This is why the answer to ‘do I need travel insurance?’ is yes

Maybe you have heard, seen or lived some of the following: Canceled flights: you are stranded in the airport losing a vacation that never even started. Missing luggage: you arrive at your hotel with nothing but the clothes on your back your iPod and your passport. That was not your idea of an amazing vacation. Accidents: You decide to rent a car and then get involved in an accident. Not only is your vacation ruined, you also are facing a huge expense.

The next thing you do after yelling at everyone that crosses your way is to call home. You explain the story a million times getting madder and madder each time, plus making everyone else worried. You spend the rest of your vacation sitting at the hotel’s lobby.

Yes all this has happened to someone somewhere, but it doesn’t have to happen to you. All these horror stories can be avoided in one single step: purchasing travel insurance. This way you will always feel safe by knowing you have a backup plan for any situation that might come your way. Don’t lose your sleep …
