Travel is the traveling of individuals between different geographical locations within a fixed period of time. Travel can be single way or round trip, with or without cargo, and is usually done by foot, by automobile, bike, train, bus, plane, or any other means. There are many ways to travel; air travel and land travel, by car and by train and also over sea. With the advancement in technology, it has become easy for people to communicate over great distances through wireless mobile phone networks.
In today’s fast paced world, people travel more often, from one place to another, within a limited period of time. Hence, it has become imperative that we have all the modes of transport available in order to move between these places as fast as possible. One can travel by car, bus or train to another place, but this takes time and may even cost a lot of money. It may also not be safe to drive over seas, and so people go by either walking or cycling or even hopping on to a rented bus or a boat or airplane and travel to another place.
For all these reasons, the need for travel insurance cannot be ignored. One should not think that traveling would be an expensive or very risky thing to do if one does not have to spend too much time in another place. However, there could be a mishap during the travel which would leave you penniless and in a pinch, insurance becomes a blessing in disguise.
