Traveling safe to Nigeria: should you take a travel insurance?

Do you really need a travel insurance? Just before you start planning your travel to Nigeria take a few minutes to find information on the potential risks of this country

In Nigeria Nigerian-operated fraud schemes, known as “419” scams, are noted for their cleverness and ingenuity. These scams target foreigners worldwide, posing risks of financial loss and personal danger to their victims. Scams are often initiated through internet postings or from internet cafes, by unsolicited emails, faxes, and letters, or can involve credit card use. As anywhere else, no one should provide personal or financial information to unknown parties or via Nigerian telephone lines. The expansion of bilateral law enforcement cooperation has resulted in numerous raids on commercial fraud premises and the limited return of some assets to fraud victims. New types of even more sophisticated scams seem to appear almost daily.

With all that in mind take the time to choose your travel insurance with care.
