...We could make this the shortest post on our website by answering the above questions in one sentence: Yes. Travel medical insurance is affordable and absolutely worth the cost. For the sake of argument, let’s say you don’t understand why you should spend the extra money on your trip. If that’s you, keep your eyes peeled and allow us to explain the benefits.

...All too often insurance lingo is thrown around as if everyone is on the same page and knows what each term or phrase means. Furthermore, I believe there’s this massive assumption that all adults over the age of 18 know and understand insurance and how it affects them.

...I don’t know how it happens, but somehow it always happens—my bag fills up when I’m only halfway through packing the pile of stuff I planned to take. As a location independent travel writer, I live out of a bag, so I’ve spent many a late night hour before a flight pondering a pile of stuff and wondering what is and what is not necessary to bring.

...Gearing up for a vacation may just be one of the most exciting things you get to do, perhaps almost as exciting as going on the vacation itself. Amidst this excitement, it is easy to get caught up in the budgeting, the packing, the daydreaming, and forget that you could end up getting caught in the rain. Remove the element of surprise and the lack of preparation, and this can be a blessing in disguise.

...At home, medical problems have their established solution. You go to your doctor and follow his or her directives. On a trip, variables are unknown. Questions which would never be asked at home must be stoically considered abroad: “Should I continue with my camping trip in the remote Cambodia highlands, or should I get this sore throat looked at while I’m in Bangkok and have access to medical services that will not be readily available in the jungle?

...Everyone says it! I wish I had more time to travel. But unless you catch a leprechaun, simply wishing something will not make it come true. But despair not. Even if you are stuck in an eight to five job with the American vacation schedule of two annual weeks, this does not mean that you are forever bound to only have ten days a year to travel.

...With good insurance, you’ll spend less time worrying about what could go wrong and more time taking the perfect selfie atop the Grand Canyon (or wherever your travels take you). Below are some guiding questions to ask during the insuring process.

...Wherever you go for the day, buy a post card and mail it to yourself. After you get home combine them into a book. Whether you are going on a multi-city trip or staying in the same location this is a great way to preserve your memories.
