Do you need travel insurance?

It has always been a dream of mine to travel overseas.  I have been to loads of places in the Western hemisphere, but I really want to travel to Europe, Australia, and lots of other places around the world.  My husband has had the chance to go to Europe, and unfortunately for me he feels like he doesn’t need to go back.  He has also developed this fear of flying, although I’m not sure why.

This fear of his did get me to thinking though.  If I am traveling, what would I do if something did happen?  Would my health insurance cover me in another country?  I honestly don’t know, I’d have to look into it a little more, but I did find some information about affordable travel insurance you can actually purchase before your trip to ensure you are covered beyond the health insurance you already have.

I found a company called Travel Insurance Direct that offers one of “the best travel insurance” programs in the market (according to their website).  They say they have over 1 million satisfied customers, and if you are not satisfied with your policy purchase and providing you haven’t made a claim or the policy hasn’t started, you have 14 days to cancel it and they will give you a full refund.  Sounds like it might be a worthwhile investment even just for peace of mind.

I hope I can convince my husband to come along with me some day so we can have some new adventures some day; wish me luck!

    It's certainly important to be properly insured when traveling, especially if you're making frequent trips abroad throughout the year. You may regard it as an added expense or a luxury but if you're ever in need of it, you're sure glad it is there. Reply
