Insurance isn’t fun.
We get that; especially because we love having fun. So why on earth are we writing about travel
insurance in the hopes that you may find it interesting? Well, we are often asked the very personal
question of whether or not to purchase travel insurance. What do you recommend? Who do you recommend? Unfortunately, there isn’t a straight answer. Even if you come to the decision of
purchasing travel insurance, you then need to choose the level of
coverage. The only sure thing that we do
know is that those who have used it to recoup thousands of vacation dollars due
to unexpected circumstances, have been more than happy for their decision.
The other day we found an article from Frommer’s that helps
to delve a bit into the question of whether to roll the dice without insurance or hedge
your bet. It’s a short one that looks
into when you may want to get insurance, points out a few resources that may
give you a false sense of security (homeowners insurance, credit card company coverage,
etc.) and how the industry is changing to include more in your policy.
Nope, insurance for most people would most
likely not be classified under ‘glamorous’, but it is something that we
globetrotters have to think about every now and then.
