Why getting travel insurance?

On an international travel adventure, you want to be sure you are covered in case something goes wrong. Like any trip, you may be faced with unexpected risks which could potentially cost you a lot if you do not have travel insurance. Even if you are very cautious, unfortunately these things can and do happen to any traveller! Costs for medical treatment or medical evacuation in case of injury or sudden illness can go up and up very quickly. That is why it is important to be covered while travelling. With travel insurance, you know that neither you nor your family will be broke if something happens. Moreover, know that to visit some countries (i.e. New Zealand, Australia…) you will need to have a travel insurance to be able to get some visas, such as a Working Holiday Visa. Be sure to check this point before planning your travel overseas!
