I have already written couple of articles mentioning how “skilful” I am and what accidents have happened to me on my travels. You can read about my unpleasant situation with red ants in Guatemala, also about spider bite in the Philippines or one of my favourite articles is a summary of my accidents in South America. I am happy that I am actually still alive. 😀
And that is why I truly care about my travel insurance. You never know what can happen while travelling. It is better to be insured than not to be. In the past I used to insure myself with UNION insurance. These days I am using different one.
My favourite is THE TRUE TRAVELLER which was set up back in 2010 by three travellers who have been through many adventures and know how important it is to have proper insurance. That is why their stripline is “Travel Insurance designed by travellers“.
The best thing about The True Traveller is that everything can be done ONLINE! No personal office meeting, paper refill. Their official website is super easy to handle and to choose the right insurance couldn´t be easier. It is truly simple.
I bought my insurance for THE WHOLE WORLD (including the USA & Canada) for the period of 16 months for 565 euro! Besides the typical medical expenses I got my luggage as well as personal items insured.
How does it work in the event of a medical emergency?
Fortunately, during last travels across Latin America, I ended up ONLY once in the hospital where I actually had to pay something. It was in Costa Rica where I ended up in an emergency hospital with a serious infection of urinal tract. I had to pay around 100 dollars for examination and antibiotics. Subsequently I emailed The True Traveller about the case already with filled in document which I downloaded at their official page. They contacted me back within 24 hours and within next 3 working days I had my money sent to my back account. Easy, smooth and without complications.
So my dear MiliMundo readers, what do you say about my insurance? Which one do YOU use?
