When you go to book a vacation, you never tend to think about what if something goes wrong. We always focus on the positive which, in most cases is all that we need to worry about. However, there are always those chances looming overhead that something horrible could happen during your vacation and if it does, are you prepared?
When I got on a plane in 2009 from Guam headed to Japan, I never expected to end up in a Japanese ambulance a few hours later. I was pregnant at the time and started to experienced complications while our plane was landing in Japan.
What started off as a dull pain progressed to something worse and I ended up being taken to a local Japanese hospital. Thankfully things worked out and two days later we were headed back to the states, however, my husband and I were slapped with a very hefty medical bill since our insurance didn’t cover international incidents.
I never thought of getting travel insurance because I never thought anything would go wrong. Honestly, it was just never something that crossed my mind. Generali Global Assistance‘s On Demand Medical Care, where you don’t have to pay out of pocket for medical services up to $1,000 would definitely have come in handy!
