Travel Planning & Travel Insurance

Planning for your trip is the best way to make sure that you have the funds available to you, to make sure you don't run out of money whilst abroad. From saving up to making sure you have the right travel insurance, there is a lot you can do to protect yourself.

Saving up

There are tons of ways to save up money for your travels. The most obvious and best way to do so is to set up a savings bank account and deposit your earnings into this account. If you're a full time worker than that is easy, if you are a student then why not get a part time job and save the money you earn through that?

Many travellers also host a garage or yard sale before they go abroad, especially if they are doing so for a lengthy period of time. This is a great way to not only bring in some extra money but also get rid of some of your junk! This can actually save you money in storage, as obviously the vast majority of travellers who are heading abroad for more than three months, a year or maybe even longer won't be able to afford to pay for accommodation in two locations.

Travel insurance

Travel insurance is essential to make sure you aren't out of pocket whilst you travel. Travelling anywhere in the world, but particularly America, can mean that you end up paying hefty medical bills if anything does happen. Many travel insurance providers also protect you for a limited amount of your personal money and other personal belongings such as your luggage and passport. DU Insure are a top travel insurance provider who allow for online policy purchases.
