Just think of all the problems that might occur when you travel internationally. Your flight could be delayed because of mechanical problems or weather issues, which could force you to miss a connecting flight. Or perhaps worse yet, it could be cancelled altogether. This will force you to buy a new ticket for a new flight, and to lose money on the one you'd already purchased which can no longer be used. Or if your flight is lucky enough to take off without a hitch, the airline may lose your luggage, a problem that will cost you time in trying to track it down and money if you need to replace the items in it and/or the luggage itself.
Medical problems are always a potential threat during travel. The stress of an international flight may leave you tired, weakened, and more susceptible to illness, which can then be exacerbated by being thrown into a new environment. Or you may become injured through any variety of problems- a simple slip and fall mishap, an auto accident, or participation in sports or some other activity.
Thankfully, expatriate travel insurance can cover you in all these situations and more. This will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars, and it will also provide invaluable security and peace of mind. The next time you plan an international trip, think of this long list of potential problems and make sure you leave prepared.
