I got the chance to sit down with Dave and Deb of The Planet D to chat about the importance of travel insurance. If you follow The Planet D, then you may know that Dave recently broke his back during a river cruise along the Peruvian Amazon.
Although this experience was very traumatic, having travel insurance Dave and Deb at financial ease throughout this situation. The travel insurance that Deb and Dave use is through American Express Canada. I use Blue Cross. Whichever travel insurance you choose to go with, make sure to read exactly what you are covered for. It’s very important to read the fine print!
The above video is a must a watch before leaving on your next trip.

A special thanks to Dave and Deb for sharing their story with the Hopscotch the Globe community. I am so glad that Dave is healing well, and will be back on the road in no time!
