Fast forward 17 months to now, and I’ve fully recovered and am back traveling, and it’s better than ever. But the fact remains that you really MUST have insurance when traveling, and from my recent experience, there are some good guys out there that are worth looking into. For my big eight month trek throughout Europe in 2013, I chose to have World Nomads Travel Insurance cover me – and for me, it was perfect. I was traveling alone, backpacking far from home, and they had creative packages that fit that sort of lifestyle. But now that my life has evolved, and my style of travel has changed, I am looking for more complex options for my future trips.
I’m heading out on my USA road trip in March, and I’m currently shopping around for an insurance company with heart, as well as quality coverage plans with no loop holes or technicalities that can be exploited against me. I mean, I can use Nomad again, but I’m looking for a plan that meets all of my needs. I really would like to find a small, close-knit, and honest insurance company... Is it really SO hard for that to exist – perhaps, it's simply a pipe dream, eh?
Am curious though, who do you suggest that I look into for my upcoming trips to Aruba and around the United States?
