Most of your insurance at home does not cover events that are accursed outside of your home country. Travel insurance will protect you and your family whiles you are away worldwide. All travelers to the tropics should have travel insurance, and that's what we also request of our guests.
It’s true that some credit cards include baggage protection and flight travel insurance, some operators offer local accident insurance, etc but reading the policies carefully and you will learn that these policies are usually very limited.
Therefore it is important that you try to additionally protect your selves with your own travel insurance.
Travel Insurance can cover you in the unlikely event of
- If you lose your luggage during your trip,
- If you delay en route and missing your connection,
- If you have to cancel your trip,
- If you become ill during your trip,
- If you injure yourself or in any car, bus, etc crash,
- and much more,
please read all the details of your insurance policy before you sign up to make sure you have everything covered.
