Insurance

  • A travel-insurance policy to cover theft, loss and medical problems as well as cancellation or delays to your travel arrangements is a good idea.
  • Paying for your ticket with a credit card can often provide limited travel-accident insurance and you may be able to reclaim the payment if the operator doesn't deliver.
  • Worldwide travel insurance is available at www.lonelyplanet.com/bookings. You can buy, extend and claim online anytime – even if you’re already on the road.
