I’m so glad I bought travel insurance when I went to Las Vegas. I knew it was a good idea. I’ve got Crohns and I’d been very sick for about a month and a half before we left for our trip. In fact, I’d even been in the hospital for a bowel obstruction just a few days before we got on our flight!
I shouldn’t have gone on the trip at all given the circumstances, but I went anyway … knowing that I’d purchased the deluxe medical insurance and travel insurance package. I could have canceled my trip and the travel insurance would have allowed me to get a refund since I really was sick and had proof of my illness. Without the insurance I would have lost money if I’d canceled.
As it was I got even sicker while in Vegas. I seriously considered seeing a doctor or going to a hospital!
Once we got home I continued to be sick for about a week longer then I started to feel better. Thats when we got the puppy and now due to lack of sleep and too much activity I think my Crohns is starting to act up again. I can’t seem to win.
Do you purchase travel insurance when you buy your tickets for a flight? Have you ever had to use your insurance?
