Trust Me, Get Travel Insurance


We've been hammering out the details of the wedding over the last couple weeks and one thing that has come up both with the travel agent we're working with and our friends and family is the topic of Vacation Travel Insurance.

Previous to last year, I had never, nor would I ever, consider spending money on insurance. It just didn't make sense to me. I was traveling on the date I already picked, no questions asked and nothing was going to happen to me to change that.

Then last Christmas happened.

An appendectomy foiled Trip #1 and slamming our 12-hour-old car into a deer changed the plans for Trip #2.

Since then, everything we've planned vacation-wise has involved spending that extra hundred bucks to cover our backsides.

How beneficial is it? Well, our travel agent is planning on discussing it individually with each person who is coming to our wedding. Incidentally, that number is now looking a lot more like 20 as opposed to 10 like we were originally thinking... WOOT WOOT!

If you've ignored every other piece of advice I have given you over the life of this site - be it movies, music or random nuggets of knowledge - believe me when I say this is one thing you'll want to trust me on.

Yeah Spencer its true, I guess insurance was invented for a reason. That site actually makes it easy; it's like a game.

Sounds like a good enough plan. Maybe you just have bad luck? Either way it's always a good idea because you really never know.
