People can come up with the most idiotic excuses when they don't want to do something. The dog ate their homework; they shouldn't drive on Tuesdays; they can't donate blood because they were drinking last night etc etc. The list is exhaustive. In the same way, people come up with ludicrous reasons for not buying a Travel Insurance policy. Let shed some light on a few such reasons that might make you chuckle:

  1. What's going to happen to me!: A prudent person will translate that to "I am invincible". We all know that unforeseen and unfortunate events can strike any moment and we need to stay prepared for them. No one can predict catastrophes like illness, accidents, weather changes, flight cancelation etc. The only way you can stay prepared against these disasters is with a travel Insurance policy.
  2. Travel Insurance should be purchased a few days before you fly: Though it is possible to buy Travel Insurance a few minutes before you get on the plane. It is highly recommended to purchase it well in advance. What happens when you pay for your flight tickets and accommodation for a business conference and it gets cancelled at the last minute? If you have not bought a Travel Insurance plan all your money is down the drain.
  3. I am not going for an adventure trip, why would I need Insurance? : Against popular belief, people into adventure sports are not the only ones who need travel Insurance. Even if you are the most laid-back or boring person in the world you are still prone to pick pocketing or food poisoning. What happens if the food doesn't suit you and you fall sick? It is still related to your risk taking appetite?

Hence, stop making excuses and start preparing your travel against the risk of unforeseen and unfortunate events. Get Travel insurance​ today!
