If you are still asking 'should I buy travel insurance?', we like to suggest that you read Christopher Elliott's piece in the Huffington Post. Elliott writes for National Geographic Traveler and blogs for HuffPost. In his new book, The World's Smartest Traveler, he has compiled tips and tricks he's collected over the years. He has spent his life traveling all over the world and writing about it. I'd say he's pretty smart! Take a minute and read his post and it may help you decide to buy travel insurance or not, and when to do so.
