Things to consider before you travel

Here are some travel tips to make your trip as smooth and as enjoyable as possible.

Here are some very convincing reasons to buy travel insurance:
    1. Your flight has been cancelled or delayed 
    2. Your passport or wallet has been stolen  
    3.  You need to cancel your trip due to illness 
    4. You have a medical emergency in a foreign country 
    5. The airline looses your bag 
    6. Travel delays due to weather 
    7. Family emergency back home 
    8. Overseas funeral expenses 
    9. Hijacking or terrorist attack 
    10. Your peace of mind!

CHOICE Travel Insurance Buying Guide
DID YOU KNOW?
Many policies don’t cover risky activities such as motorcycle, moped riding, skiing, parachuting, scuba driving or surfing. Make sure the policy you choose covers you for your holiday destination and the activates you’ll be undertaking. Don’t just pick insurance that’s the cheapest.
