The excitement of your travel departure date is just around the corner, you’ve saved up all your hard earned money, paid for your flights and accommodation, tours are booked, clothes are packed, and your spending money is just waiting to be spent.

What happens if:

You need to cancel your trip unexpectedly
A hurricane damages your destination
There is a terrorist event
You get sick or injured on your trip
Your luggage is lost or stolen
You lose your passport
I bet the mother whose daughter drank a cocktail filled with chemicals in Bali and had to be flown back to Australia at a price of $50,000 would have loved to have had travel insurance.

When Caz got struck down with tick-bite fever in South Africa and had several hospital visits we’re glad we had travel insurance.

And that time when US immigration lost all our passports in the US, we thought insurance was pretty useful as it saved us from forking out half a grand on replacements.

On our trip to Thailand when we left our computer unattended briefly and a cheeky 2-year-old Savannah slammed it down and killed it, we were glad we had insurance – saving us $1,500 to replace it.
