Do you think travel insurance is necessary? Why or why not? For those of you who purchase it on the regular, on what occasions have you had to make use of it? Who purchases it regularly and has yet to file a claim?
And lastly, based on your experience, would you say the majority of travelers you meet are insured?
Feel free to respond in a free format and without one-by-one greentext answers. Just curious.

>>1049383 I think travel-medical insurance is necessary. I buy it every time I travel and haven't had to use it yet. However if were to get sick or have an accident abroad I don't want to be paying $400,000 out of my own pocket to cover those expenses. We've all seen those astronomical medical bills from the US but many people don't know that in other countries the costs are actually similar to those it's just that medical care is free for their citizens. In Canada for example if an American was to end... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Had two major claims in my life, both when I was younger and more risk adverse. Needless to say, I could spend $200 a year for the rest of my life on travel insurance and still not get close to the insurance bill for either one the bills.
One coma and one mountain rescue makes me think travel insurance is definitely worth it.

My days are numbered, I feel wretched most times and I know its just a matter of time for me. I have only about 11,000 dollars left and at this point I just dont care anymore. I live in seattle now and I need a good 45 day vacation spot for my final trip ever. I really dont want to spend more than 2500 if I can help it and im super good at roughing it. Ive been in all lower 48 states, so those destinations are out. I hate cold (60), where would you suggest?
Why are you limiting your spending if your days are numbered? With that amount of money, do the 1970's hippie trek to the himalayas through afghanistan. Beautiful trip, and you wil eventually die along the way, probably in a peaceful blaze of opium.
Planning on a road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne to watch a King Gizzard concert, drink with strangers, then back in the morning
My car is a 1973 Holden Kingswood Wagon (pic related). Am i dumb to take this old car on a 2000km round trip? its good for what i use it for being 20-30 km a day, and i like it because its a wagon, dual purpose as a shit carrier and to sleep in.
Also, what do i bring? what are the essentials? Ive got bedding, beer for when i get to Melbourne, money, good radio and a phone. Anything else?
>>1054298 >need a knife Ive drunk with strangers before, really nice people once you get in the right grove with the right people.its heaps fun. Cant think of a better way to make friends. >>1054297 >condoms you're implying like i could even fuck or get fucked. thanks for thought though
>>1054226 There really isn't much to do there. Go see the old town, Casco Viejo and if you're into that sort of thing the original settlement in Panama Viejo. Definitely check out the canal, it's pretty interesting actually even if you don't care much about ships.
Other than that, there really isn't anything else to see. The city is quite boring to be honest. You might find some good shit away from the areas with the skyscrapers. In fact, the most interesting area I stumbled across was close to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I need help, /trv/ I am a US citizen flying to berlin on feb 9th and will be flying back feb 26th. I have decided i will go berlin>frankfurt(visiting friends)>amsterdam>paris>... I cannot decide where to go from there. I really want to go to rome. Please offer me some inspiration/advice, /trv/
Hey /trv/, I always wanted to go to Russia to obtain a degree in Automotive Engineering and/or some kind of Mechanical Engineering (engine mod for racing, chassis modding, painting, cnc for spare parts manufacture, soldering, any of the listed not all of them).
I was wondering if you can help me, where should I apply, which insitute/university is the best for that, and which is the cheapest way to travel and to live there.

>>1053932 I wouldn't go unless you have mega savings first. The cost of leaving can be high to visit senpai back home, and housing starting prices is high. Don't get in over your head as a starter idea. Also, when and if the next conflict breaks out, you will need last minute airfare, so make sure you plan for that too. If you're just looking to expatriate, relocate in the US first and see if you can't take a job that gives you some extra income or a different climate. Go beach or go mountains, or something...

>>1053922 >>1053922 Belgian here, Brussels is a cool place, don't worry about "them terrorists". You'll feel safe in Belgium. Are you interested in the culture and history or more for the modern art and such...? If you like, we could hang out in Brussels and i could show you around. I love meeting new people.
To answer your question: imagine going to NYC on the 14th of september 2001. You'll be safe
>>1053922 I'm not on the ground there, so I can't tell you what it feels like, but for an internship, it'd be a great central location to be in Europe. It'd be an easy launching point to do weekend explorations, and it has a great bar atmosphere.
aus regional trains are the best I've ever been on all really really clean, safe, people will talk to you
trains in northern vietnam were the scariest I've ever been on people would try to fore ther way into your cabin, shove packages through the windows, the toilets at both ends leaved into the hall, the train would stop for hours for no reason in the middle of a field
