When Mum first arrived, one of the “juicy tales” she filled me in was about a fellow traveller in her Eastern Europe tour group who ended her holiday in an Austrian hospital, recovering from a mild heart attack.
It got me thinking for a moment – exactly how many of us have travel health insurance or are protected in one way or another when we travel for either work or leisure? If we are insured via a health insurance, is it necessary then to purchase a travel health insurance?
You have to forgive me for asking really weird questions – I woke up at 455am and went on to spend about three hours on a train just to get from Lucerne to Neuchatel.
To hit the point home, I caught the flu in France. Bleck. Not that I need insurance for that but it was hardly pleasant to catch the flu while you’re on vacation.
Anyway, I better go read my insurance clause to check…
