i have been searching around and i can totally relate with brian's post.

i met someone in this forum who sent me a message when i posted a question whether nib or medibank is a better travel insurance. well i tried choosing nib but i had problems with it when i got injured trekking. it so happens that i wasnt able to get the appropriate hospital cover and extras for my travel insurance. too bad, i had to pay it for myself.

When one backpacks for a trip he/she definitely should have to purchase safety packages (insurance). No one in this universe can predict what will happen with us tomorrow, so we must have some early arrangements/precaution. Last month, I saw an article published by atlas america insurance  company where they had mentioned that yearly they have had to deal with 20,000 human tragedies all over the country. Among them 50% are not covered with travel insurance or any other safety packages. This information apparently shows that still a lot of travelers are careless, they are irresponsible towards their family. So, that I think that still the knowledge of insurance needs to be flourished in every part of America. Also, American government must make travel insurance mandatory for travelers.
Thanks.

So far we have only had 1 medevac this year and the person was covered through 1Cover which is advertised on our front page.  It was the first time I had dealt with this insurance company who went through Mondial for their recovery mission to pick up the trekker.

All went extremely well and I was so pleased with how it was handled.  So I can recommend 1Cover along with Covermore another company who in the past has been extremely helpful as well.
