Avian influenza, malaria, earthquake and cyclones are all the dangers that travelers face daily during cruises, something I once called "Risk International".
When you leave your home, your country is decent, a place where you are used to and your body is well-protected in local diseases. I find it annoying to find good people traveling abroad without adequate health insurance coverage. Some assume that they can handle incidents related to sea voyages. Do you think you will be above all the travel-related situations? Now, take a look at a list of potential issues that you are sure to set, a challenge for you:
1. When you do not know that providing health care to foreigners is much more expensive and can cost 10 times more, do you pay tax in the country of visit?
2. If there is an emergency that requires you to come back to a more private agreement, who is going to dump the account? You from the big pool of your funds, I hope.
3. Since your body is not acclimatized to this new environment, it means that you will definitely need special medical help compared to the citizens of the country of visit.
4. If you are on a vacation trip with your family and most likely you pregnant spouse gets a complication what happens when budget funds do not meet the requirements.
So many things can get really bad that they would need to spend so much money. Could this affect your trip coupled with fears about what might happen that you might not be prepared for?
With all that is going on around you and money is fast exhausting, wouldn't it be a good idea to have a travel health insurance to cover these medical risks?
It is so easy to get into a medical situation that we can feel unprotected like the flu epidemic, asthma attack, stroke and what you have. You may even try a foreign delicacy that may seem harmless, but your body may be allergic to it and may lead to other problems that your financial resources will not be able to accommodate.
Get travel health insurance and leave these medical expenses to travel health insurance companies. I don't really care about money problems so I don't travel abroad without politics.
