Travel Insurance help!
21st February, 2014
I'm planning my first trip around Asia for three months this year and I need travel Insurance.
I'm not really sure where to start, because I want cover for my IPhone and I also might stay a bit longer.
Any ideas or advice would be a huge help!

Travel insurance is the best way to make your trip safer and better. Travel insurance policy covers medical expenses, cancellation of flight, and loss or damage of personal property during overseas trip. So its better to travel with overseas travel insurance policy. Good Luck!

Thanks for the advice! I know I definitely should get travel insurance, just not sure which company to go with.
Has anyone used a company they would recommend?

Travelfish recommend World Nomads insurance - they're not the cheapest, but they are apparently good.
In terms of which other companies are recommended, it's going to vary depending on your home country.... I'd suggest you go to one of those price comparison sites to get an idea of the main providers (and prices) in your area, then do a google search for reviews of those companies (assuming the comparison site doesn't already include reviews). Take all reviews with a pinch of salt, though - one angry customer doesn't necessarily mean a company is crap.
Finally, ensure you check exactly what's covered - will they cover you to drive a motorbike? Ride on the back of one (moto taxis)? Some policies have limitations based upon the size of the bike's engine (although I've never yet seen a big-ass Harley being used by a moto dop, so it's probably not much of an issue in Asia). Are you covered for diving or other adventure sports? What's the valuables and single item limit (to ensure your phone is covered).
