When do you need to buy travel insurance?

It is a good idea to buy travel insurance whenever and wherever you travel. However, there are certain situations when you should definitely have travel insurance coverage in order to recoup your expenses in case of the unexpected:

✓When you plan to take part in risky activities such as bungee jumping, trekking, climbing, scuba diving, skydiving.

​✓If you are in a body of water such as a lake, river or sea for surfing, boating, kayaking or white-water rafting.

✓If you are on a pre-scheduled or multiday package tour.

✓Whenever you visit a foreign country, especially if you plan to visit lots of different places.

Most important of all, you want to be insured for the peace of mind that travel insurance provides. You don’t want to worry about whether something might go wrong when you are traveling and trying to have a good time. We have examples of a customer who recovered +25,000 USD in travel insurance. This would have been a profound financial burden to carry personally if he had not had travel insurance.
