Insurance

Travel insurance that covers theft, loss and medical problems is essential. Note that some policies exclude ‘dangerous activities’, which can include scuba diving, surfing, motorcycling and even hiking. A locally acquired motorcycle licence is also not valid under some policies.

Worldwide travel insurance is available at www.lonelyplanet.com/travel-insurance. You can buy, extend and claim online anytime – even if you’re already on the road.
