This is a debate question, especially in countries where traveling is more expensive than in others, because we usually consider this “an expense”. Maybe you’re used to being a backpacker and traveling with confidence that everything will turn out well. The point is definitely travel insurance is the one that makes the difference in case you decide to do all the coasas you wrote on your to-do list before you die.
IATI is the option we chose and we recommend. They have coverage for any type of trip, you are backpacker tourist of short trips, that you do adventure sports. It has 24/7 assistance and is perfect for you to be covered but also taking care of your budget compared to others is cheaper and has excellent coverage worldwide, for lost or damaged luggage and other expenses. Buy your travel insurance!.
