Travel Story: Travel Insurance Is Absolutely Required & Here’s How I Learnt The Hard Way
Read carefully and learn. So that you don’t make the same mistakes I did on my last trip to Boracay!
Everything happened in March of 2016. Our gang have just completed our National Service then entered an online travel website to book a flight to Boracay, our pink ICs in hand, ready to enjoy the civilian life we had been passionate for so long. It was really a great trip. We made plans for water sports, golden sunsets and alcoholic drinks … What more could a man ask for?
Travel insurance: what’s the big deal?
Here is an important disclaimer: We didn’t have travel insurance. On the contrary, we didn’t consider that we should have travel insurance. I mean, really! What could possibly go wrong? Boracay was a paradise for travelers from all over the world and has become a choice destination for many. We thought that we were only going to be there for a short five days, each one of us had a small baggage, besides, most people could communicate in English there. The possibilities of anything happening were low and, being on an already tight budget, we decided to scrimp where we could. Little did we know.
