Travel insurance is must-have for many reasons as it covers you against risks such as flight cancellation, lost or stolen luggage, emergency accommodation and accidents.

But the most important reason to take out travel insurance is because your private health insurance policy won’t cover any medical treatment costs when you are overseas  which could run into thousands of dollars.
