Travelling to an international destination?
We want you to enjoy every minute of your adventure, so before you leave, it’s a good idea to organise travel insurance for your journey.
When something unexpected happens overseas it can easily ruin your journey. Aside from the irritation, it’s often far more expensive than you may realise. Being the victim of crime could see you lose your wallet, watch, bags, or worse – suffer physical harm. If you’re interested in some statistics of crime on holiday, you can read more here.
Another reasonably common occurrence, that can become a costly exercise, is suffering a serious illness on board a cruise liner and needing medical evacuation. That will cost you a small fortune, as will most medical treatments in the U.S.A.
When you’re injured, finding suitable transport to somewhere that can treat you may be difficult to arrange, and they may require an immediate guarantee of payment - usually for an expensive fee. We have documented some recent cases in an infographic showing the biggest cases from 2015 here in case you’d like to know more.
