Many travelers all around the world treat travel insurance as a luxury, rather than a necessary part of the travel plan. A long overseas trip (or for that matter, even a smaller one) brings forth lots of things that need to be perfect - tickets, documents, visa(s), (and many more documents if it is a business trip), etc. Somehow, travel insurance gets shoved to the bottom of the priority list.

When on a tour, either for business or pleasure, the last thing you would want to worry about is financial problems in case you need health care. There may be reasons that you may need to seek health care overseas, and the worst position to be in is to find out too late that you should have bought that travel insurance after all.

Health care may be much more costlier overseas. Also, your domestic health insurance may not cover (or be accepted for) your health care expenditure abroad. Citizens of UK and other European countries who have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) need to know that the cards are not valid outside Europe. In fact, there may be clauses that make the card invalid in many European member countries too.

Point is, why take a risk when you don't need to. Treat travel insurance as an integral part of your travel plans, and travel with well-deserved peace of mind.
