I have auto insurance, home insurance, and health insurance, but for the first time ever, I purchased travel insurance.
There are lots of choices and it’s overwhelming. There is even an entire website dedicated to Travel Insurance Reviews. Good advice also exists at Rick Steves. For an exhaustive list, check out InsureMyTrip for an item by item comparison. Just enter your dates of travel, costs, and ages of your travelers and you’ll get instant quotes.
After much deliberation on this, I decided to see what Lonely Planet suggested. They recommend World Nomad’s Travel Insurance, so I followed their lead. It was fast, easy, and cost effective. It’s backed by TravelGuard. Let’s hope I never have to use it!
Happy RTW Travels!
