It has recently been reported by the UK press that one in four UK citizens do not take out travel insurance when they travel. According to Sainsbury Finance, nearly a third claim that they do not even need travel insurance while one fifth state that they can’t afford travel insurance. The poll was conducted recently of 1000 travelers for the company.
This means that 25% of travelers are leaving their travel plans up to chance and risk thousands of dollars in medical costs if they become sick or injured while traveling abroad. Traveling abroad with travel insurance will provide both peace of mind and financial security if an illness or injury strikes.
People who travel without travel insurance should know that a medical repatriation from the United States can cost 140,000 and an unpleasant stay in an American hospital or intensive care unit in Greece can reach up to $2,000 per day. You might only save a few dollars a day by not taking out travel insurance when you travel, but such a decision may also cost you thousands a day in uninsured medical costs. Taking out travel insurance is more important than taking your passport or baggage.
