You’ve never needed travel insurance until you needed it. Let me start by telling my story.
In my early 20’s, I booked a trip to the Dominican Republic. Being young, naïve and somewhat confident that “it wouldn’t happen to me”, I decided to forego the purchase of travel insurance while away on my one week getaway.
On the very first day of my trip, I had an uncomfortable feeling on the surface of my abdomen. After lying in the sun all day, I felt further irritation. I knew that something was wrong when I woke up the next morning with massive blisters on my stomach.
