Travel Insurance Small Print

We've all heard the stories before. A fellow backpacker has had something stolen but because they didn't have the item locked up in a trunk encased in steel and surrounded by landmines their insurance policy is invalid and they can't make a claim! Ok maybe not that extreme, but it seems that when you need you insurance most there's always some small thing you forgot to read that screws you over.

That's why reading and understanding the fine print is so important. If you're paying good money for coverage, you'll want to make damned sure it's there for you when you need it.
