When planning for any trip, the million-dollar question always remains whether or not to take a travel insurance. Although, one may consider it a mere waste of money, however, opting for it is rather a smart option. As no matter how well-planned a trip is, unforeseen weather changes, ill health, or other catastrophes can sabotage it.
Travel insurance covers expenses incurred and minimizes the risks during travel. It acts a cushion in situations such as trip cancellation due to medical emergency, loss of baggage, evacuation due to medical condition or hijack, and loss of travel documents among others. In addition, travel insurance is mandatory for tourists, who visit countries such as the U.S., Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Canada, and Australia for business, education, holidays, or visiting friends and relatives (VFR).
