Why get travel insurance?

If you travel without travel insurance you are personally liable for covering any medical costs that you may incur in.

Medical treatment in the US can be very expensive.

Full cover is good idea: it wil cover not only illness, injury or medican expenses but also theft, damage and loss of luggage and even flight cancellations.

Accidents happen

When things go wrong, and mind you, accidents can happen to anyone, the costs start piling up and can very soon reach thousands of dollars.

Be smart and cover yourself and protect your assets, buy travel insurance.
