Whenever you are going abroad, even just for a holiday, travel insurance is always recommended. Travel insurance will cover you for any mishaps that may arise in your new home, ranging from legal costs if you are a victim of crime, lost possessions or even cancelled plane tickets. You never know when an unfortunate incident could occur.
