A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be. - Albert Einstein
You may have the best when it comes to health, auto, and home insurance, but if you travel a lot, you might also want to look into travel insurance. Many unpredictable situations can occur when you travel to a different country. Your insurance provider back home may not cover these occurrences, and you may need travel health insurance or another form of international travel insurance to take care of you in the occurrence of accidents, dental care, diseases, lost baggage, rental car damage, trip cancellations, and more.
You never know what might happen during your international travel and it is best to leave home prepared. Therefore, consider purchasing additional insurance when you travel. Start by gathering up all the current insurance you have such as home, auto, life, health, dental, personal property, and umbrella policies. Then, review the policies to see if you have travel health insurance and/or international travel insurance coverage on them. For instance, some homeowners and renters insurance policies may cover your personal property and liability all over the world. Therefore, if you already have these coverages, you can skip paying for them again in the form of travel insurance.
However, if you discover that you do not have sufficient coverage for travel in your current insurance policies, then you might want to contact your travel agent for additional international travel insurance policies or try to find some policies yourself.
