It’s a question we get asked on a daily basis – Should I buy travel insurance? From full-time nomads to weekend escapers, it is something that tends to divide opinions between travelers. Some people might think that nothing will ever go wrong (the old “it won’t happen to me” attitude), or that they aren’t doing any extreme activities. Perhaps it’s only a short holiday, or they don’t have anything worth stealing. Based on personal experience and the hundreds of stories we hear every day, we have to disagree. If you’re asking yourself, “do I need travel insurance?”, the answer is YES!
Whether you are going overseas for a week or a year, having travel insurance is one of the smartest purchases you can make. Yes, it can cut into a significant portion of your budget, especially if you are travelling long-term, but the benefits are worth it. And trust us – It’ll be cheaper than emergency surgery or medical evacuation, should you ever need it.
From Asia to the Americas, Africa to Europe, and everywhere in between, It really doesn’t matter where you are travelling. It is important to have travel insurance!
