Where to Buy Travel Insurance Online for your Asian Adventure

A lot of people I knew, do not buy travel insurance whenever they book a flight or travel. I am one of those people who feels that travel insurance is just an additional travel expense. But after experiencing some travel disasters in the past such as delayed flights, canceled flights, damaged luggage and lost luggage, I realized that we need to buy travel insurance for our future travels.

Last year was the very first time that I bought a travel medical insurance, it is one of the mandatory requirement if you apply for Schengen Visa so I have no choice. Fortunately, you can buy travel insurance online so less stress.

A few weeks ago, we booked for a plane ticket and I was contemplating whether I will buy a travel insurance or not. I checked the rates of Philippine Airlines and I saw $16 if I will add it to my plane ticket. Then I remembered the travel medical insurance that I bought last year at Malayan Insurance Company, Inc. So I checked their rates and it is cheaper than PAL Travel Insurance so I asked my husband if I will buy it and he agreed. Since I can buy travel insurance online, I just bought it two days before our flight.
