Sometimes you want to get travel insurance but are willing to sacrifice some of the cover for a cheaper price. Some insurers offer special budget, backpacker, or cancellation insurance. Medical emergencies can cost up to $100,000 or more if an evacuation is required so it is a very good idea to get some level of protection.
Make sure that you are aware of what is covered in each case and whether you wish to take those risks. Cheap travel insurance is great if you are on a tight budget but don’t skimp on the essentials. It costs much more to get evacuated from a country following an accident than it does to get good travel insurance cover.
It doesn’t need to cost a lot to get budget travel insurance and it can save your life.
