Insurance

No matter how long or short your trip, make sure you have adequate travel insurance covering you for medical expenses, luggage theft or loss, and against cancellations or delays of your travel arrangements. Check your existing insurance policies at home (medical, homeowners etc), since some policies may already provide worldwide coverage.

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.
