Don’t be a fool, and be sure to purchase travel insurance!
Wise words you may have heard before, smart enough to even adhere to the comments, and you have been wise to purchase travel insurance. Then again, maybe you have been a fool who has ignored the words of advice to purchase travel insurance and have been fortunate enough to avoid any mishap on your overseas adventure.
I call that a lucky escape because many travellers have ignored the sound advice of purchasing travel insurance, short-term or long-term. They have found themselves in the hole financially due to an unfortunate event when an insurance policy would have put their mind at ease.
Don’t let that fool be you!
Your travel memories won’t be so bright if, in the rare chance, you do lose your baggage, get robbed, have cancelled flights, get into an accident or tragically, there is a death. Don’t let that be you looking the fool. After all, you don’t need to turn good memories into an expensive disaster because you failed to do the simple things and ignored insurance.
All those situations mentioned have happened to travellers at times, and purchasing travel insurance, can help cover a crisis and avoid huge bills. It’s like having medical insurance. You hope you don’t need to use it, but it can save you thousands of dollars if you do.
Here are several reasons you shouldn’t be a fool and be sure to purchase travel insurance.
- Travel insurance is affordable: Travel insurance doesn’t have to cost you a lot. If you do your homework, you can find the best deal for you at a great price. Insurance Packages range from essential to premium; keep in mind the cheapest is not always the best. Read the fine print.
- 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 a horrible scenario does happen on your vacation.
- It’s better to be safe than sorry: Most people don’t need to claim on their travel insurance, but it doesn’t make it wrong you purchased the insurance, and it should never be considered a waste of money. As the old saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry.
In recent times, I’ve heard too many horror stories where families have set up fund-me pages to ask for donations to get out of a disturbing situation. My heart bleeds for the affected, especially when it was supposed to be happy times
Life doesn’t always go to plan. And just like positive travel plans need to be made, you also need to plan for the worst-case scenarios. The unpredictability of life can’t be taken for granted.
In saying that, hopefully, your recently purchased travel insurance is a waste of money, and your trip is nothing but happy memories. What isn’t pleasant is when things go wrong, and you’re financially in crisis when purchasing travel insurance could have saved the day.
So, don’t be a fool and be sure to purchase travel insurance for your next vacation.
