Prep work and things to consider
The most important hurdle – making the decision to ACTUALLY GO – is already taken. You know, at least roughly, when you want to leave and where you want to travel to. Now it’s all about getting ready for departure. Most of the travel planning is great fun and gets your anticipation going. But there’s also a serious side to a going on a big adventure. You want to have your finances straight and be prepared for when things don’t go according to plan. And the longer your trip, the higher the chances that something unexpected throws you off your path.
Don’t get us wrong, surprise events are half the fun of travelling and you wouldn’t be a true backpacker if you didn’t put a positive spin on the craziest of situations. In fact, helping you be able to put a positive spin on things is exactly what we’re here for.
Here’s an Example: Say (and let’s hope not), you have a scooter accident in Thailand and fracture your ankle. Scary situation indeed. Now having someone you can rely on to sort out a good hospital for you and pay for the cost to re-book your flight to Vietnam will help you focus on recovering. Plus, with up to $100 hospital cash allowance per day you can pay for the expensive Wi-Fi plus get a round of coconut waters for you and your new friends at the hospital. That’s what we call putting a positive spin on things.
