I think insurance is very important. just for my own feeling, i will feel more safe. but u have to check the details. one time i travel to japan and the plane delayed. i don't get any money from the insurance coz my delayed times is not long enough!

Since I´ve grown older, I always take insurance when I travel. I don´t mind so much if my suitcases are lost but it is imoportant to get doctors and the right medicines in case of need. Years ago, I went to Spain with my husband. One handbag was stolen and the only important thing it had was our meds. We called assist card, they sent a doctor, discovered what was the generic name of our pills and we had no problem. From then on, I buy the insurance with the ticket. You never know.

yeah i always do but i buy a cheap basic one which covers lost luggage and cancelled flights, and with regards to medical bills i have a free card which pays for hospital bills given to everyone in europe

It depends wher i come to and even if there are difficulties or soemthing i guess the insurance should be really comfortable!!normally i can have it if ii travel abroad because it can be useful ffor also that purposes you can't preven before you travel as in many cases if i know very well the dstination and so i can judge that the insurance can be off i will quit it...but normally i think when you come abroad can be useful too
