If you are leaving your home country then travel insurance is a MUST!! We have heard horror stories from other travelers as well as personal tales. A friend of Chili’s was really sick and stuck on an island without travel insurance. The delay in getting him flown home to Chile for treatment caused his condition to worsen. Monique her herself claimed on travel insurance after breaker her arm snowboarding in Switzerland. The bill was in the tens of thousand of dollars for my on-the-mountain treatment, however I paid nothing – thank you travel insurance!

When we travel, we use World Nomads. They are cheap and reliable. They are also the travel insurer of choice for Lonely Planet, which speaks volumes. We found that they insure travellers heading into ‘off the beaten track’ locations for a lot less than other companies. You can get a quote from the widget below.
