Understanding Worldwide Travel Insurance

It is now so much easier to travel the World. Cheaper air fares and faster trains have brought distant lands within easy reach of us all. Travelling to exotic places and getting the feel of 'local life' is very exciting, but it brings its own perils because not everywhere is a sophisticated as our own home environment. As well as packing the insect repellent, sun cream and tablets to help control 'Delhi Belly' you should make sure that you have adequate worldwide travel insurance for your journey.

When choosing the policy that is right for you remember to check that it will cover you for everything you plan to do on your trip. If you are simply looking to relax by the pool, or on the beach then most policies will provide adequate protection, but if you are more adventurous, and intend to walk the Sydney Harbour Bridge, climb Kilimanjaro or go bungee jumping, then you must check that your chosen policy covers all of these activities.

It is essential that you put as much care into choosing your travel insurance policy as you do in planning the rest of your trip, and that means taking time to read the policy small print! Of course it is boring, it is a legal document after all, but it does tell you what is and what is not covered. Remember that every policy allows you a 14 day 'cooling off period' so a few minutes spent reading through the policy to check that the cover is right for you will definitely save you potential financial hardship and worry later on. Here are some pointers to look out for when considering buying a worldwide travel insurance policy.

Finally, before committing yourself to buying the policy make sure that you have declared any pre-existing medical conditions you may have, and told the insurer about any hazardous (risky) activities that you are thinking of doing.
