Why travel insurance is more necessary than ever

Although the absence of a mandated quarantine is good news, it also puts you more at risk on top of other worst-case scenarios when travelling. Moreover, there has been an alarming increase in flight disruptions and baggage delays due to the lack of manpower thanks to the pandemic.

Thus, travel insurance has become imperative now more than ever. With so many uncertainties that come with living in the new normal, it’s best to take the necessary precautions and travel responsibly.
