When I travel, I do not leave home without insurance. The thought of going without does not even cross my mind. Sure, nothing will likely happen – BUT – what if something does? At that point it’s too late and you can quickly find yourself drowning in hospital bills. It’s simply not worth it. What surprises me whenever I travel is that there are many travellers who do not buy insurance. Either they can’t afford it or they think they are invincible. In my own opinion you cannot afford NOT to have insurance nor is anyone ‘invincible’.
From the Backpack With Brock video vaults comes this time in India where I almost needed my insurance following a nasty fall in the New Delhi train station.
If you’re planning a trip and don’t have your insurance, I would recommend World Nomads. I personally use them every time I travel. They are friendly, efficient, affordable and cover pretty much everything travel insurance will cover.
