We all love airports, some of us more than others. They carry so many memories, either just about to be made, or ones that are being made there and then. The thrill of travelling to a far off place, the fun of taking off into thin air suddenly brings a butterfly in ones tummy and yet a smile on ones face.
Very rarely do we get into an airport without an anticipation of seeing something novel, something new. The sheer experience and anticipation of travel has a very childlike thrill associated with it, often bringing memories of vacations gone by. Would something ever go wrong in such situations, well it can. Our usual mentality is to rely on heavenly grace and disregard problems that we might face on journeys. We all want to have a lovely journey, we all want to reach and leave on time. None of us want to lose their passport, or land without preciously packed baggage, with that suit specially picked out for the occasion. The reality is that such incidents do happen and can leave us with a feeling that we’d wish we had never embarked upon the said journey, which earlier we were so looking forward to.
Importance of Travel Insurance
Nothing and I mean nothing can bring back time and bitterness faced by these negative experiences. Apart from being a complete dampener on your spirits, it can also act adversely on your pocket. For the worries affecting your pockets, travel insurance is an ideal option.
Travel insurance covers expenses of hospitalization, loss of baggage and other incidental expenses, it also covers you against trip cancellation, trip curtailment, loss of passport and even burglary of your home, whilst you are away. Features may vary dependent on plans but concept of travel insurance remains the same and that is safeguarding one from financial loss due to unforeseen incidents or events while travelling.
