As always, life can often be unpredictable. I recently found myself (and my red hat) in a bit of a conundrum. I was traveling to a concert in Canada, which is something music lovers can relate to as Montreal usually hosts some great shows. However, on this trip I also found myself in the ER, which is something most music lovers CAN’T relate to. I must have been partying a little too hard and in a blur I ended up with a broken ankle (maybe my dance moves were a little too much for my body to handle). Luckily, and this is the reason I’m writing this blog, I had travel insurance.
Travel insurance covers you when you’re out of the country, as most insurance plans don’t extend beyond the U.S. borders. I thought this blog would be important for ANYONE who might need the same level of care without having to front any money. I personally used insurance to acquire my travel insurance as they were recommended to me by a friend. They were very knowledgable and were able to guide me through the process to find the right level of travel insurance for my needs before I set out on my trip. I urge anyone in the New York metro area reading this to consider using them not only for travel insurance, but for their other offerings as well (Dental Insurance, Health Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance, Disability Insurance, and Supplemental Health Insurance).
So while this is a bit off the beaten path from what I intend to typically post on this blog, I can’t stress enough the importance of thinking ahead before you travel. If you have any insurance needs at all, I’d contact insurance companies to get what you need. You can’t go wrong with their knowledgable team and friendly demeanor!
