It's Good To Be Insured When Taking a Tour


Many tour companies offer great travel experiences around the world.  Many of them are adventurous, off the beaten path, and full of risks.  Today, it is a custom to require travel insurance to do such tours, especially if they are on the adventurous side.  Tour companies like Gap Adventures and Intrepid Travel proud themselves for having a good safety standard.  For that reason, they require travel insurance on each and everyone of their travelers.  When you search for Gap Adventures reviews, or even Intrepid Travel reviews, you will see go good they are and how high their tour standards are.

Even though these tour companies offer their own recommended insurance, know that you can do, and will be fine by supplying your own backpacker travel insurance. As long as your insurance is a single trip travel insurance or an overseas travel insurance, you will be able to comply with the safety standards of such companies.  

No matter which insurance you decide to use, the important thing is to travel safe and protected.  The best thing about traveling is to be able to relax and know that you are secure.  

Travel Safe!

Accidents DO Happen!

Not long ago I had a small accident while visiting Copan Ruinas in Honduras.  I tripped and fell from one of its pyramids, sending me down a couple steps face forward.  My knee hit the edge of one of the stone steps as I fell, giving me an ugly and scary open wound.  I was in serious need of a Doctor's attention.  This clearly reinforces the importance of always being protected with travel insurance for backpackers.
