If you cannot afford travel insurance, you really cannot afford to travel. We keep hearing reports of injuries and accidents overseas to tourists who have not purchased travel insurance to cover themselves.We keep seeing reports pop up of tourists riding motorcycles without helmets. Especially in places like Bali. For some reason they think that nothing will happen to them.
Yet they forget that traffic conditions at home are poles apart from driving in another country.
Why do tourists think they do not need a helmet on holidays when they must wear them at home? The risk of falling off a bike is the same.
There’s no question about the cost of medical treatment being expensive overseas. Even more expensive; if the person has to be flown home.
Even if you never make a claim, travel insurance is the best investment in your health you can make.
After all, you want positive experiences on your holiday; not negative ones.
