Why Get Travel Insurance
I’m an advocate for getting travel insurance when you travel internationally because you never know what could happen. You could get into a physical accident or become ill from something you ate. There could be an emergency at home, needing you to buy an unexpected flight back. You could have all your stuff stolen or get lost by the airline. Travel insurance might not be able to help you with all the stress but it can help you save a lot of money in these situations and in some cases, be life or death. This story illustrates a dire instance of why travel insurance is beneficial. If you’re looking to get travel insurance for your next trip, I recommend World Nomads. While I haven’t needed to use it, it’s an affordable cost for peace of mind.
