    then get some :) honestly. if you don’t have travel insurance then get it. you cant afford to travel with out it. no matter how much you say “it wont happen to me”… theres a chance it will. you’re better to be safe than sorry.
    Covermore are a great company and my travel insurance for 7weeks was only $350, which is a small price to pay in the scheme of things.

    Think of it like this. If you break your leg, can you afford all the hospital bills, treatment, accomodation while you heal, new flight home or flights for someone to accompany you?
    if you get hurt, contiki wont wait for you. they’re on a schedule and will leave you in the country with your stuff.

    I Agree With Amalia 100%. Travel Insurance is a must have. It’s simple if you cant afford travel insurance you can’t afford to go overseas! I’m pretty sure that it is compulsory to have travel insurance with contiki anyway. If you don’t have it i guess they can refuse to accept you on the tour.
