And that’s why you need travel insurance.
Gunung Agung on Bali is a little cranky at the moment, and it’s threatening to severely disrupt the travel of a group heading to G Land in two weeks.
Will the trip need to be cancelled when flights can’t land? What happens if the group gets in and can’t fly back out? Accommodation bills can add up pretty quickly.
This is just one reason why travel insurance is compulsory on all our tours.
Another reason is the steep costs of medical evacuations. You don’t want to be crowdsourcing the $US40-60,000 bill because you thought saving a couple of hundred dollars on insurance was a good idea. This is happening to so many travellers at the moment. So rules are rules. No travel insurance, no tour.
