Having a travel insurance when you travel especially abroad is very important. The costs of inpatient confinement and even outpatient consultations are very huge.
There was a time I went to Dubai for a vacation, when I arrived I suddenly got some terrible rashes. At that time there was some sort of virus around the globe. I think it was MERS. My friends who traveled with me were so scared, they avoided me. And that was the time I knew who my real friends were. Just kidding. 😆
Anyway, to stop the scare and speculation among my friends I finally decided to have some outpatient check up. I tried to find a Filipino clinic, thinking that the Filipinos there would be friendly and would offer an affordable price.
Unfortnately the opposite was true, the Filipinos who treated me were milking money from me saying that it may be a case of a virus. They said I do several tests which I think were unnecessary. In total I spent close to P20,000. They even scheduled me for another follow up consultation and for the test results.
But the night after the consultation, my rashes slowly disappeared. And the scare that the Filipino doctors and nurses were telling me were not at all true. It was just a case of some allergy I did not know I had.
From that day on, I promised to get a travel insurance everytime I travel. What is a few hundred pesos versus the cost of hospitalization abroad? Further, since I am a financial advisor and insurance agent, I belive it is my duty to walk the talk. I should also be travel insured.
So, I searched the net for the most affordable and good service travel insurance company. In my opinion the best travel insurance is the one below:
