Relying on free travel insurance through credit cards
Have always had my doubts about how effective this would be...free insurance through credit cards and now I know.
We have had in the last few days the story of a little girl who was found at the bottom of pool in Bali.
Parents thought they were covered but found out to their cost that due to a "technicality" they were not. No idea what that means. I would suggest the insurance company found a loophole as they usually try to do.
However, the general public came to the rescue and stumped up over $85,000 which enable the parents to get a special care flight aircraft to bring their little girl to Perth for treatement. She is still in a coma to the best of my knowledge.
Honestly, I do not know why people do not take more care in ensuring they are adequately covered when going overseas. Relying on the general public through GO FUND ME etc is not the answer.
