Kilimanjaro Brothers recommends that you “purchase a travel insurance” protection plan to help protect you and your travel investment against the unexpected.
There is nothing like travel to experience our beautiful and fascinating world first-hand. Deciding to travel, and deciding on an adventure excursion, in particular, is one of the most exciting decisions you can make. Deciding to travel without adequate travel insurance, however, could be one of the most dangerous and costly decisions you make.
Expecting the best while preparing for the worst is an important rule of thumb when preparing for a trip abroad. Unfortunate accidents can happen to anyone at any time – from flight cancellations and unexpected family emergencies to hiking or rafting accidents or sudden severe illness, not to mention the possibility of civil unrest in the nation(s) you’re visiting – anything can happen and it’s vitally important you protect yourself.
You never need travel insurance… until you do.
As you get excited making your plans: booking your time off work, purchasing the necessary equipment and supplies, exploring possible excursions, the unsexy details such as purchasing insurance protection may not necessarily be the most inspiring of tasks.
In fact, you might be even thinking why do I need travel insurance? I’m young and athletic, why is trip insurance important? Travel protection may be necessary for other people, but why is it important for me?
Certainly, no one wants to pay for travel insurance. That said, there is any number of things that no one wants to pay for… but it’s crazy how easily you can end up paying for things you didn’t anticipate or want to pay for on a rafting or backpacking adventure – an unexpected accident, illness, or injury chief among them! Regardless of your age or level of fitness.
If something happens to you on the road and you don’t have travel insurance, you are vulnerable to incurring unplanned costs or worse.
Some examples of potential difficulties you can prepare for traveling abroad:
-Stolen backpack or valuable possessions
-Canceled or missed flights due to labour strikes, civil unrest, etc.
-Missed flights due to the above
-An injury that is a medical emergency
-An illness that requires medication and/or hospitalization
-Unexpected need to travel home before return date
Buying travel insurance is an investment and a welcome safety net to guard against any unexpected craziness of traveling. Travel insurance provides you with not only the appropriate coverage to ensure you’re protected for your travels but also provides vital peace of mind as you embark on your various exciting adventures.
We know that most of the time when you travel, it’s likely nothing will go wrong. But it only takes one poor decision, a misjudged bend in the road, sneaky thief, or plain just plain old bad luck to change everything.
For your convenience, we offer travel protection through Travelex Insurance Services.
