Should I Buy Travel Insurance?
Okay guys, let´s talk about a more serious topic today: Travel Insurance. Being insured and thus being more carefree when traveling is something that is close to my heart.
Wondering, if you need a travel insurance? My short answer is: Yes, you need travel insurance if you travel.
Why? Because it is better to be safe rather than being sorry later.
Well, I am German and we love to have insurance, it is something we Germans have in our genes.
I am not only a fan of health insurance, I have several other insurances (even my dog has some insurances!) so that I do not have to worry too much in case something does not go according to plans. Life is not predictable and we cannot control everything – and in these cases, insurances can be worth its weight in gold (literally).
Travel insurance is not only for nomads or those traveling several months a year. There are many different insurances for all kind of travelers/tourists, and there is a perfect one for you as well.
Different insurances cover different costs in cases of: missed flights, lost baggage, stolen belongings, illnesses while traveling, accidents, and much more.
I know some see insurances as an additional cost but it is essential – seriously.
BUT before you instantly buy several travel insurances you should know a couple of things, so you can make an informed decision because every coverage is different and you need to find the right one that suits you.
If you ask me, I´ll recommend health insurance to each and every one of you guys. It is not a myth: People having accidents or getting seriously ill while traveling happen on a regular basis. Who wants to pay thousands of $ for hospital treatment out of their own pockets?

Do I recommend more insurances to all of you? Not necessarily, the good thing is, that it is totally up to you what other kinds of insurances you want.
