Travel Insurance – We Don’t Travel Without It
Maybe back in your young and reckless days, you didn’t buy travel insurance. After all, you were going to live forever, and nothing would ever happen to you, right?
But some things have changed…
- You now have a few more responsibilities to yourself and others. And dare you admit it, you take life a little more seriously.
- Healthcare fees have skyrocketed since you were young. In case of an accident, do you really want to cover the cost of an emergency evacuation home? The short answer is no.
- You’re likely also carrying more expensive luggage, computers and cameras. If something happens to your belongings, it’s good to know that travel insurance will take care of it.
- You’re older, smarter, and you have the money to pay for insurance. You have insurance for your home and car, right? If you want to gamble, head for the casino. Travel insurance isn’t the place to wager.
But other things haven’t changed. Your travels are still adventurous. You’ve got a few more things to cross off your bucket list. Getting older doesn’t mean missing out.

Be sure your travel insurance covers what you need…
We buy travel insurance for two big reasons: if we ever have a medical emergency that needs to be dealt with and could be expensive, or if someone stole or damaged the equipment we travel with (mainly laptops, phones, cameras).
We’ve been fortunate (and careful) and have had reasons to thank our lucky stars.
In Paris, a guy once grabbed our suitcase off the belt in the airport. Just happened to catch it before he made off with it. On a recent trip, one of us got sick, and required a doctor to come to the hotel. Luckily, it was solved with inexpensive prescriptions. But both times caused us to think….
For emergency healthcare or accidents, we look for at least $100,000 in coverage. We also make sure that it includes both appropriate local medical care AND emergency evacuation to get us back home if we need it.
From a theft and damage perspective, it’s important that our plans cover the equipment we carry.
