travel-insurance-tipsHere are some other common mistakes that you might want to avoid when you are wandering the globe!

6.     Sticking to the tourist trail

Be adventurous. Explore and discover hidden corners and local taste. Instead of doing everything a common tourist does, relax a little and take a crazy turn. Since you have spent loads of bucks to reach your destination anyway, you might as well make it worth your while by avoiding stereotypical tourist objects.

7.     Tempting pickpockets with flashy items

Perhaps you don’t realize it, but flaunting your valuables in public will attract petty crimes, even if you don’t mean it! Anything from wallet bulging in your back pocket to a little bit of jewellery on your neck might put you in danger of mugging. It’s better if you have purchased a travel insurance that will cover for loss of valuables – nevertheless still exercise caution and care.

8.     Doing too little research

Avoid arriving to a destination a not knowing what to do by at least doing a small Google search. The more research you do, the more likely you will enjoy your vacation.

9.      Having all your money in a single place

Split your cash and store it in different “safe” places in case you lose any of your possessions. To be extra safe, a good travel insurance cover will redeem you for any loss of valuables including money

10.     Having unrealistic expectations

Keep an open mind and a happy heart when facing a travel experience that doesn’t live up to your expectations. Instead of grumbling away, try to derive lessons from your misfortune and digest everything with a handful dose of humour. Purchasing travel insurance is also a good way to make up for some misfortunes that might befall you and perhaps help lessen your irritation. Be sure to check the best deals available online before purchasing your insurance!
