Why to Buy Travel Insurance

You’re either one of those people who won’t leave home without it or someone who just throws caution to the wind—AT YOUR PERIL.

1. Trip cancellation.

2. Trip interruption.

3. Medical emergency.

4. Earthquake. Don’t laugh. This happens.

5. Hurricane.

6. Terrorist attack.

7. Labour strike.

8. Beached cruise ship. This happened to my auntie once, and she had to come home in her pajamas.

9. Death in the family (see Point 2).

10. You have elderly and/or rickety parents (see Point 9).

Bonus Reason. Your own death!

Check with your insurance agent, and if you don’t have one, it’s worth the effort to shop around first.
