1 travel insurance

Suppose it is the departure day of your eagerly-anticipated and much-desired holiday. Loaded with agitation, you expect loosened up days at the beach soaking up the sun and balmy evenings dining and sipping cocktails on the pool terrace. It never comes on your mind that you should buy travels insurance.

Everything is made reservation for and confirmed. You have your passport, airline tickets, reservations and holiday money set up. Your bags are packed with all the requirements and clothing for glorious hot, sunny weather. You take a taxi to the airport, board your flight, fly to your headed place, pick up your , check into your 1 , unpack, and head out to the beach to relish the sunshine. Simple!

Two days into your holiday you have a in 1 travel while crossing the road and forget which way to look. You get it wrong, you step out, and…


There you are, lying prostrate on the hot tarmac with one of your feet facing the wrong direction. Feeling shocked. Strangers haste over to assist. You hear someone saying:

Somebody call an ambulance!

You are hastened to a hospital for x-rays and later the doctor affords you the serious news: a insurance demanding big surgery and an extendable recovery. They ask for your . Then, and only then, you see darkness and recognize that you should have bought travel insurance. You make up apologies and excuses: you didn’t think, you’ve been on so many trips, so many vacations, done strange things but nothing ever went unfortunate before.

Now what?

Your treatment is going to cost a great deal. You make terrified calls to family and friends at home. Someone recommends you buy travel insurance and get covered.

Yes, for sure! That’s the respond. Why not. You buy a policy online and then contact the claims department to report your accident.

At this point the Claims department is none the wiser. They take the policy number and all the information and tell you not to feel troubled. They have it under control.

The following day you get to know that the 1 travel insurance claims people are urgently attempting to contact you. You call the help line and receive the news, then feel light-headed as your world begins collapsing around you.

“Sorry, but we checked your policy dates and it seems that you did not buy the insurance till the day of the accident. Our insurance demands purchase before you leave your homeland. As a matter of fact, the time of the purchase indicates that the policy was bought after the recorded time of the accident. Unluckily, and we are actually sorry to have to apprize you about this, but your 1 travel insurance policy is not logical and we cannot work on your claim.”

What? Say again?

You hang up the phone, dumbstruck. Irritated! How on earth could they refuse your claim! You paid the premium for the 1 travel insurance policy and they should cover you! The hospital bill is going to reach tens of thousands and you simply don’t have that kind of disposable cash.
