…pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day, it will be too late.
— Jhumpa Lahiri
If you read this quote from Jhumpa and connect with it and start thinking, “Yes, I should do this!” it is a sure shot sign that you live in a city and have been fantasizing about a nice vacation for a while now.
This World Tourism Day, say Enough to daily worries and stress, say Enough to the traffic and the monotonous routine, say Enough to the 9 to 5! Let’s dive into that calm and unchanging aspect of you, where a deep peace awaits...
Today, let OneInsure help you find your roots on a safe, stress-free vacation.
No matter how tough you are, living in the city can become too much if you don’t release that pressure and that stress. However, if you don’t plan your travel well, the vacation that you are taking to get relief from stress can become a major source of stress!
- Imagine losing your baggage due to a logistics mix-up by airport staff
- Imagine losing your passport while in a foreign country
- Imagine getting into an accident and being hospitalized with insufficient funds to pay the hospital while traveling
These are real-life situations faced by tourists daily. This is why a travel insurance plan, which is a simple and pocket-friendly policy that you buy prior to your travel (international or domestic), is a must-have for all vacations, whether you are traveling alone or with your family/friends.
Travel insurance plans are suggested by the Ministry of External Affairs of the Government of India as well (https://mea.gov.in/guide-to-consular-services.htm).
Here are situations where travel plans provide financial assistance and make your vacation completely protected and stress-free:
- Hospitalization resulting from accidental injury or sickness
- Loss/theft of baggage or passport
- Flight delay
- Trip cancellation
- Disability compensation resulting from an accident
- Plane hijack
