travel and adventure insurance

When traveling many things can happen. Fortunately most trips end only with beautiful photos and memories. Though if you do need travel and adventure insurance and you don’t have it, things can get very expensive. In general medical expenses in Asia are low. Though one never knows what may happen, and if you need evacuation or serious medical care, you are gonna have to take a bank loan.

I have been traveling with WorldNomads assistance for years and was always glad to have them to rely on. Recently my wife took part in Mini-Marathon on Koh Phayam. The race terrain was hard and it was a very hot afternoon. Near the end of the race she collapsed from the heat. She needed to be evacuated to the mainland from this island, because facilities there were not enough. A speed boat had to bring her to the hospital, and spend 2 days in medical care to recover. If it wasn’t for the travel and adventure insurance we would have had to pay around $2000 for this from our own pocket.

Of course you might not be running in a race on your journey, but are maybe scuba diving Indonesia, or trekking up a volcano in Sumatra, or simply crashed on the scooter exploring Vietnam. Apart from accidents they can help you with many things like lost luggage, cancelled trips, or your mountain bike.
