Don’t leave home without Travel Insurance
Here at Wyld Family Travel we often say to people “If you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel”. Buying travel insurance should be one of the first things you do after booking your flights.
Travel insurance policies offer protection for different types of unexpected losses related to travel including lost luggage, trip cancellation, lost deposits, and medical expenses abroad. Some travel policies also cover the cost of being stranded at the airport because of bad weather or riots in the city you are visiting. The cost of your trip may already include some level of coverage, but it is important to check your policy for individual details before you go on vacation.
Researching travel insurance options can be overwhelming. Travel Masters algorithm recommends the best insurance option for your travel needs.
Essential travel accessories
The right travel accessories can make the difference between a miserable and a memorable trip
Travel luggage is one of the most important purchases for any traveller. It makes travelling easier by carrying all their necessary items with them. The weight and size of the luggage should be taken into consideration before purchasing it. Luggage has become lighter, wheels have been added to suitcases, and hard-case suitcases have become a common commodity. Some of the most essential features that a traveller looks for in a suitcase are its weight and size. We have been using both Antler and American Tourister luggage in the past. Our small Antler carry-on suitcases came with us on 14 months of non-stop travel around the world. They were put in planes, thrown on boats and stored on trains and made it home without any problems.
