The importance of insurance

For those lucky enough to be away for long periods of the year, long stay travel insurance is absolutely essential. Holiday junkies or those on frequent business trips will be using planes, coaches, buses and other vehicles to reach their destination, so cover is a necessity. But it's not just important during the transport, it's also key during the actual trip.

Insurance gives you the peace of mind to do anything and everything on your trip. Multiple levels of cover also allow holidaymakers to choose the best policy for their needs, so those going on a beach holiday won't need winter sport insurance, for example.

However, if you do fancy a spot of snowboarding while on your trip, there is always the option to add another layer on your multi trip travel insurance. In addition, some insurers also allow you to book more than one person on the policy at a discount, giving your partner, child, parent or friend peace of mind too.

With so many policies to choose from, the process of actually choosing where to go now becomes a daunting one, especially as you're covered when going almost anywhere. Scuba dive in the Caribbean? Sure. Skiing lesson in the Alps? Why not. Island holiday in the Maldives? Let's go!

On the other hand, many people forget to buy a travel insurance policy or actively neglect to purchase one, thinking, "Oh, that won't happen to me, I'll just be careful." If you're one of those people, you could be exposing yourself to thousands upon thousands of potential costs should the worst happen - from a small inconvenience to a catastrophic disaster.

Medical cover is particularly important, especially if you're heading to a place for a long trip that has no state cover, such as the United States. As if being admitted to the hospital while on holiday was bad enough, the large medical bill that you could be presented with is more than likely to induce a massive headache.

Overall, holiday insurance for those who regularly travel is just as important as, say, a passport. Or correct currency. Without it, you could be in a lot of trouble.

Apartment owners beware: building insurance stops at your apartment door

Buying a new apartment can be exciting, and with all the emotion and upheaval of moving into a new place, it can be easy to overlook (or even be unaware of) the need to make sure you’re properly insured. The problem is, this oversight is often not realised until it’s all too late. The sad fact is, many people don’t even realise they need their own insurance when buying into a condo or co-op, and assume that their building’s insurance covers everything. It doesn’t. That’s why it is important when you’re buying a new apartment, to know what is covered by the building owners’ insurance and what you need to get cover for personally. There is a checklist at Flex Insurance . Of course, you also need to know what kind of ownership you have over your unit, so let’s look at that first. Condo or Co-op - what difference does it make? Quite a big difference actually. Firstly, you don’t want to be under-insured. But at the same time, you don’t want to be paying twice for insurance cover
