Travel insurance is always recommended, in order to protect yourself against unexpected events while travelling both domestically or internationally.

It can help with costs in the event you fall ill or get injured while overseas, or lose your luggage or have it stolen. Plus it can cover you for cancellations and flight delays.

It depends on the type of policy and its level of protection, but with travel insurance you can be covered for a number of unforeseen scenarios that can bring your travel plans to a halt.
