As the number of posts regarding travel insurance have increased, I've pulled most of the ones I could find together to form its own dedicated section.
Please fell free to ask any questions you have about travel insurance -- likewise report any positive (or negative) experiences.
Like many things, not all insurance providers are equal and some are better suited than others -- depending on your personal needs and concerns -- so keep that in mind if you're looking for advice on which insurer to use.
Travelfish regulars will know we strongly advise all travellers to have some form of insurance before they travel and when we travel we use WorldNomads. We use them because we've met the people behind World Nomads and we think they've put together an excellent product designed with the independent traveller in mind.
They are not however the only quality provider out there, so do your research yourself -- and always read the small print!
Note, if you purchase a policy from World Nomads through a link on Travelfish, we may be paid a commission on that sale.
Also note that Travelfish members (outside of those in North America) can get 5% off their travel insurance with World Nomads -- please see the Member Centre for more details.
