Importance of Travel Insurance

March 26, 2012

 When going on a long-awaited holiday, the least you’d think of is that something bad may happen or anything may go wrong. But statistics would prove that there are a lot of injuries involving tourists and even more are getting hospitalized. Imagine saving up and getting off from work for a 5-day vacation with your family in Paris. You’ve planned the day trips, what you would see and eat, you reserved tickets for the Louvre, a bus-ride for the whole week but in the middle of it all you suddenly got sick. 🙁 You weren’t able to enjoy the rest of the trip because you had to stay at the hospital. And no, being hospitalized isn’t so cheap abroad. Your lovely getaway just turned to one expensive holiday. That’s why you regret not  having to  avail travel insurance offered by Gateway insurance.

Time and again you’ve read the importance of getting a travel insurance and a travel medical insurance. Before deciding to get one, you have to go through your existing insurance policies that may cover travel or is better than what you’re looking at. For example, a travel insurance may cover rental vehicle excess that’s much cheaper than what car hire companies have to offer.

Remember that it’s not only about medical issues here. If and hopefully this doesn’t happen, your luggage got lost or when your money was taken (robbed) or the hotel you were staying at wasn’t so secure at all and some of your belongings got lost, a safety net, albeit spent for will save you dollars and unwanted (?!) headache.

  1. It’s my first time to hear this kind of insurance. Besides, the only insurance I have now is life insurance. 🙂

    This is a lot beneficial to travelers and tourists.

  2. This made me realize that I have never availed of a travel insurance for any of my previous trips. The closest for me to ever purchasing one was the kind that our local airlines offered in the Philippines (those that were sold at Php250). Because of this, I will now look into my options. Thanks for sharing this. =)

  3. Having an insurance whether life, health and even travel insurance can make a big difference when the unexpected happens, and having it will give you peace of mind.

  4. I used to ask my parents why need to pay for different types of insurance plans. It was only when I reached college that I learned about its importance 🙂 A travel insurance is a need!

  5. I still haven’t looked into this since my parents are the ones who arranged most of our travels. But when I’ll have a long trip abroad, I think I’ll get one 🙂
