Is travel insurance really worth it? For most of us, our trip overseas will go without a hitch, right? The truth is, disaster can strike any of us...a skiing injury in Austria, a moped accident in Thailand, or a gastro bug in India.
If the worst does happen on your journey, the last thing you want is to find yourself in a foreign country where you don’t speak the language or understand the healthcare system. And don’t forget about the hefty bill you’ll have to foot if you need to be airlifted back to New Zealand for medical treatment.
