What happens if I forget to buy travel insurance?

No travel insurance and already travelling?

It’s pretty common.

You have been planning your big solo trip abroad for months and you think you have all your bases covered.

You are now sitting on a beach in Thailand. You are gazing out into the azure coloured sea and enjoying the sound of waves gently lapping onto the sand.

Suddenly your gaze is interrupted by another backpacker, maybe from your own country, who is limping heavily across the beach with scars all the way up their legs. Yep, this unlucky traveller looks like they might have been involved in a motor cycle accident.

You think to yourself that you hope they had travel insurance because medical bills in Thailand can be very expensive.

Then is suddenly hits you! You forgot to get yourself covered before you left home.
