In fact, many travelers spend a lot of time planning for leisure or business trips abroad although, do not take in to consideration the importance of a good insurance policy. Remember, you are more vulnerable to illnesses or accidents while traveling to a foreign land. Thus, it is essential to insure yourself fully against any mishap. An international travel insurance is a type of insurance policy that protects you from the financial losses that you might encounter during your vacation. Here are the following five reasons that show why you must have a travel insurance cover in place before you head overseas –

1- It covers emergency medical expenses: Medical treatments are usually very expensive abroad. And, the risk of falling ill during trips is always high due to change in food and climate habits. A travel insurance policy covers the cost of medical treatments received abroad.

2- It covers theft or loss of luggage: A travel insurance policy covers the cost of your belongings that are stolen or lost. Although, you must mention the belongings you want to cover at the time of policy purchase and you should pay the premium accordingly.

3- It covers cancellation and trip delays: Though, you might have booked hotel rooms or flight tickets in advance, but there’s a possibility that due to some reason your trip gets postponed or cancelled. The reason could be due to anything like medical emergency or death of a close relative. Therefore, in such circumstances, a good travel insurance policy will compensate the trip of your cost.

4- It provides round-the-clock support: This is yet another important benefit of having a travel insurance policy. A 24*7 emergency helpline comes in handy to give you directions and guidance, if you are stranded in an unknown location. Thus, it is always advisable to carry an insurance document while traveling.

Other Safety Tips -

Keep a photocopy of your passport and all other important documents in a safe place.

Use ATMs during the day, when there are people around.

Try to spend more on credit cards and travelers cheques than cash.

If you are mugged, don't fight back. It is better to lose a few rupees, a wristwatch or your wallet as well than get injured.
