Be it for work or for pleasure, travelling can at times get risky and it is always wise to be prepared for unforeseen events. Like any other insurance policy, Travel Insurance covers all the risks that are related to the subject insured. Hence a travel insurance policy covers your entire journey from commencement to the end of the journey. Any such policy is valid from the time the insured starts his/her journey to the time the journey is complete or the time the contract expires or whichever is earlier.
Some of the best policies in the market allow you to extend the policy in case the stay is extended and the reasons for extension are beyond one’s control. Most of the policies automatically extend the tenure for 7-10 days in the event when there is a delay due to some strike or any other happening that is not in direct control and no other travel arrangements can be made. However during your stay abroad on payment of additional premium the policy can be extended as per the terms and conditions of the insurer.
Travel Insurance covers almost everything that can cause damage or loss to you while you are travelling during that insured period. It can include the following:
• Accidental injuries
• Third party liability
• Loss of baggage
In case of lost baggage however the claim is a certain percentage of the valuation of the baggage and not the whole amount. Mostly it is half of the value and valuables. Perishables and consumables are not valued under this provision.
Though Travel insurance covers medical expenses that you may incur in case of any accident or illness, it does not cover medical expenses in case one has gone for medical treatment. Travel Insurance only covers expenses that occur due to any sudden unforeseen incident during travel. Any illness or disease contracted during the travel would be settled subject to the insured possessing the required documents. (more…)

Keep track of your family vacation!
I always kept a diary or journal as a child. In the journal would be information like the date, what I did, who I met and if I had a good day or a bad day.
Well, guess what, as an adult, when I travel I also keep a journal. The journal contains information like the date we left for our vacation, the date we arrived at our destination, the people we met, whether or not we had a good time, what activities we did and what we saw while we were there. I also keep contact information on the people we meet, if they give it to me, so that I can keep in contact with them. Great way to make new friends. If we had a bad experience, it is noted and we know not to return there and why. It is so much fun and I can look back in the journal from year to year just to see what my experiences were while I was traveling on the road or at my destination visiting tourist sites. I have put menus in my journal from favorite restaurants, brochures from my favorite tourist sites etc.
The best thing about keeping a journal is that the whole family can contribute. Not everyone is going to enjoy the same things. You would have the information about what you enjoyed doing or experiencing as a family and know to do the same type of activity or vacation again knowing that your family enjoyed it, maybe going camping, going hiking, going on a cruise, or just relaxing in a hotel that had a pool or was located by a beach. If you stayed at the same location for a length of time you can enter into your journal whether or not there was enough activities for the whole family to enjoy. Maybe you had to travel around quite a bit to find activities for members of your family to enjoy. Sometimes, this can be costly and really not a lot of fun if you have to do a lot of driving. Not very relaxing, which is what a vacation is all about.
You can put anything you want into your travel journal. It is your reference, from personal experience, about everything that you did on a vacation, people you meet, restaurants, activities you enjoy, things you see. It is your own personal travel guide from first hand experience. It is also easy to take with you. (more…)
