Don’t skimp on your Travel Insurance

Psychologists have long proven that humans have a built in ‘it won’t happen to me’ wiring in the brain.  There are actual studies. But whilst we think something won’t happen to us, chances are that it’s just as likely to happen to us as someone else. And this is why you should take out travel insurance.
