I’m gonna be honest, I have never once used travel insurance. I like to live my life with the confidence that any debilitating issue that crops up because of my poor lifestyle will be medically fixable by the time I’m 50. But this is because I live on a freelance writer’s budget. I’m a cheap bastard. And while a fool and his money in this case aren’t soon parted, I can understand that you really, really shouldn’t be following my lead on this. That’s how you wind up in Nepal after an earthquake with a shattered leg and no way out.
Go Overseas, where I’ve written mild-mannered travel tips for some time, is one of the best resources for these sorts of things. My new article is now live, and it’ll be a great resource for when you come to the realization that, yeah, travel can be dangerous work. You’re gonna want somebody to have your back, even if that person is some faceless nerd in a claims office. Check it out below.
