If you’re thinking “do I really need travel insurance”, the answer is yes. Travel insurance is an absolute MUST.
The first time I said “thank goodness I have travel insurance”, was when I fell extremely sick in India from chronic food poisoning and had to spend time in hospital, the second time was when my new Iphone got stolen, the third time was when I damaged my camera trekking up a hill… I mean, I could go on and on. But it’s safe to say, travel insurance has saved my arse on countless occasions!
It is inevitable that whilst travelling you’ll either rent or be a passenger on a scooter, and to my knowledge a lot of travel companies don’t cover for scooter accidents – so make sure when choosing insurance, this is covered.
