Travel Insurance Gone Wild

Just when you think you've heard it all, Travel Insurance came to the rescue of travelers in some of the most bizarre circumstances. It's SecuriGlobe's job to tell you all the possible things that could happen to you on your vacation, which should encourage you to purchase well-needed Travel Insurance.

Most times claims aren't that extreme, but at any rate Travel Insurance is key to planning a trip, especially overseas.

It could be a $2,000 ambulance trip or it could be a $150,000 (medical) flight from China to the United States. The industry has become more competitive in recent years as more companies join and create alliances to add more benefits to policies.
