The Importance of Travel Insurance When Going to North America

When we travel abroad on holiday, we often have a false sense of security. This is because we are far away from our usual concerns, and we therefore feel relaxed and happy. The reality is, though, that there are going to be risks and if things go wrong, we could be in big trouble unless we have adequate insurance in place. The Down Under Travel Insurance will cover things like:

  • If we need to be repatriated back to the UK in the case of a medical emergency, this will be covered by the policy
  • We will be covered for required hospital stays and medical expenses
  • If our luggage or belongings are stolen or missing, we will be covered for this
  • If something happens and we need to pay additional money for accommodation, this will be covered by the policy
  • Loss of our passport or cash
  • Cancellation or other types of trip interruptions
  • If our luggage is delayed
  • Personal liability insurance

These are only a few of the things that can be covered by your Down Under policy. You can find out more information by reading the information pertaining to each type of policy. You can also contact us to have your questions answered directly.

The Need for North America Travel Insurance

Anyone who travels to North America without adequate travel insurance will be taking a huge risk. In the UK, we can depend on a relatively good standard of healthcare even if we cannot afford to pay, but this is not necessarily the case in North America. In places like the United States, people are expected to have health insurance unless they are really poor, and the level of treatment provided will often depend on the ability to pay.

We always hope when going abroad that things will go smoothly, but it would be unwise to assume that this is always going to be the case. Even if you have been abroad many times and never needed to make a claim on your travel insurance, this does not mean you will be less likely to need to make a claim this time. It is important to remember that you might only need to make one claim for all the previous money you have spent on this type of policy to be more than worthwhile.
