Safety Concerns to Watch Out When You Travel

Jun 16, 2008
It is interesting and fun to create your own travel show and why not? With websites like YouTube and Revver, you can freely upload your videos and gain some audience.

To start with your travel show, get the stock stock footage of the various travel documentaries of the shows and take them along with you on your travel to the destinations they have been. Take along your handy cam and try to mimic your famous show host and make your own home video. You can always sell your home video to TV channels that allow freelance work or broadcast your video after they are satisfied with it or upload them in youtube and start a travel show online.

If you're up there, you're out of land authorities' reach. Ever since the 9/11 attacks, a lot of people have been more conscious about travel insurances. Hijacking is covered by it even though the said cover will only be enjoyed by the policyholder AFTER he/she survives the feat.

Although some hijackings had bad results, there are some high profile hijackings that were controlled by the authorities. So, what will your travel insurance cover if this mishap will happen to you? Well, if the hijackers order the pilot to land the plane on an isolated island or another place perhaps and they let you go, lose all your luggage in the process and then get sick or PTSD in the long run, the travel insurance will definitely cover the loss of your luggage and medical treatment.

Once you enter their website, you will have to choose which country you reside in, your supposed destination, specifics of the travel (whether international or domestic flight), the time your policy starts until the end date and your chosen type of policy (single or family).

World Nomads claims that they offer at least 50% off travel agent prices. True! Since for a six month coverage, it'll only cost you about $240.00. Plus, they've got great services in their website. You can download an mp3 guide of the major languages of the world (for conversation purposes) and put it in your iPod! Are there any deals sweeter than this?

There are some events that happen that you may consider as out of the ordinary but the possibility is still there. Insurance companies feel that clients may claim from them when these things occur so they have made provisions to guard them from such claims. Some of the events that are excluded include:

Cancellation of the tour by the organizer - most insurance providers do not deal with this eventuality and this means that refund for airfare is not covered.

War/Local protests - civil unrest, mass actions occurring at the time of your travel are excluded from policies even if they do cause your changing of plan.

Celebrities can be perfect targets of insurance brokers such as travel insurance. They are the ones who get to travel almost for free because of the nature of their jobs such Concerts, shootings, shows, etc. They might be interested in investing in this kind of policy since they do travel for a living. They get paid for it and at the same time they can expect something once an accident occurs while working. It is also appealing to celebrities for the reason that they value their body so much that any bruise might cost their job. So, if ever they ruin their face due to an accident while traveling, the best consolation for them is to have something when their career is over.
