Travelling to the US, Paris, Australia, New Zealand or any other foreign country for studies is a whole new experience and fills one with thrills, hopes and all the positive energy. The atmosphere at home before going is filled with both – the excitement of the beginning of a new life and, the fear of the unexpected in a foreign land. Unfortunate events like falling sick, meeting with an accident, breaking teeth, losing baggage or one’s worst nightmare – losing passport, can make your stay difficult both on the mind and on the wallet. Medical expenses in countries like the US et al. are towering at much faster rate than in India. What should the students then focus on - studies or expenses? These unfortunate instances can shift students’ focus from their studies. In such situation, experts advise to cut down the worries with a student travel plan.
