Don’t be a fool and purchase travel insurance.
Wise words you may have heard before, wise enough to even to adhere to the words and purchase travel insurance. Or maybe you have been a fool who has ignored the words of advice and been lucky enough to avoid any mishap on your overseas adventure.
I can only call that a lucky escape, because there are travellers out there who have ignored the sound advice of getting themselves travel insurance, only to find themselves, through an unfortunate event, in the wars financially.
Don’t let that be you.
Please, don’t let that be you, because you don’t need to turn good memories into expensive memories, all because you didn’t get insurance. The memories won’t be so bright if in the rare chance you do lose your baggage, get robbed, need to cancel your flights, get in an accident or tragically, there is a death.
All those situations mentioned has happened to travellers at times. By purchasing travel insurance it can help cover a crisis and avoid huge bills you simply can’t afford to pay. It’s like having medical insurance, you hope you don’t need to use, it but if you do, it can save you thousands of dollars.
Here are few reasons you shouldn’t be a fool and purchase yourself travel insurance.
- Travel insurance is affordable: Great thing is, that travel insurance doesn’t have to cost your lot if you do your homework on the world-wide internet and find the best deal for you. Packages range from basic to premium, keep in mind the cheapest is not always the best.
- Bad things do happen: touched on briefly already but it’s nothing further from the truth, bad stuff happens on holidays, just like in the real world. Cover yourself on your holiday and save thousands of dollars in the rare event that the worst-case scenario does happen to you on your vacation.
- It is better to be safe than sorry: Most people have not needed to make a claim of their travel insurance, but it doesn’t make it wrong that it was purchased in the first place. As the old saying goes, it better to be safe than sorry.
In recent times I have heard too many horror stories where families have had to set up fund-me pages and ask for donations to get out of a deeply tragic situation. My heart pours out to any one affected, especially during a time that is meant to be full of happy memories.
It is what has inspired this article, life does not always go to plan and that includes your carefully thought out travel plans, and worst-case scenarios in any circumstances need to be planned for because of the unpredictability of life.
In saying that, hopefully at the end of your trip, you found your recently purchased travel insurance to be a waste of money, and that is a good thing. What is not a good thing, is when things go wrong and you’re financially in the wars when it could have easily been avoided.
So, don’t be a fool and purchase travel insurance for your next vacation.
