Go Exploring With Travel Insurance

When we plan holidays or trips the purpose is that we want to get out and see the world, expand our horizons, experience new cultures. Many people are not just settling for the typical Spanish beach holiday and are opting for something a bit more adventurous, some people are even making sure that when they go on holiday that they can provide help to countries otherwise forgotten about.

When we go on these holidays or trips we unwittingly put ourselves in harm’s path, be it walking through a jungle infested with snakes and scorpions or even taking skiing lesson up a mountain slope.

Whilst the more adventurous and hardy of us will dismiss this issue and jump in feet first the more cautious traveller would probably shy away from dangerous activities but is still susceptible to the same risks as the daredevils.

This is the reason why travel insurance is more and more important these days, the main reason is that repatriating people who’ve been injured in a foreign country can rack up serious bills. When you think that ambulances and even roads can be rare in some remote locations and quite often an air ambulance in the form of a medical helicopter will have to carry you to the nearest hospital and the cost of such service can rise above ?1000 and in some cases where you are needed to be lifted over long distances it is not unheard of for the bill to shoot up to the range of ?9000.

When you hear figures like that it should make you think that travel insurance is a necessity rather than a precaution, with young people spending time on gap years towards worthwhile causes such as hospitals in Africa and other countries it becomes oblivious that travel insurance is something you’ll need as well as your good intentions.

If you’re one of the more adventurous of travellers and like to go here there and everywhere it may be worth looking into annual travel insurance as it would certainly save time when it comes to packing and planning your latest Indiana Jones-esque adventure! It would also be advisable to inform your travel insurer of exactly what you’re holiday will entail, in some cases you will have to apply for further cover on activities like skydiving and other adventurous exploits.
