If you have forgotten or opted out on travel insurance, you stand alone with the financial responsibility if things go wrong when traveling abroad. Even less serious injuries like a broken leg or a less serious illness can easily run into thousands of Euros.
It is not uncommon that foreign hospitals charge over 5000 Dollars a day for a hospital bed. Complicated injuries or illnesses such as a broken back, brain hemorrhage or the like, may (including repatriation by air ambulance) cost you more than a million Dollars - if you do not have travel insurance, that is!
If you want to travel unconcerned around the world, it is essential to purchase travel insurance. It will be a much smoother process if something goes wrong. KILROY cooperate with Gouda Travel Insurance, which deals exclusively with international travel insurance and know what to do when an incident occurs - whether it is in Los Angeles, the Sahara desert or in the jungle of Borneo.
Please note that many travelers mistakenly believe that their private insurance or credit card insurance always cover the trip abroad. Beware, the conditions can vary greatly and it is important to read the policies and fine print very carefully before departure. In most cases, private insurance or credit card insurances do not ensure comprehensive cover if something goes wrong.
Never compromise with travel insurance!
