What is the need for travel insurance?

Travelling gives a break from monotonous daily routine and thus everyone likes it. Be it a business trip or a family vacation, one enjoys the change from day to day life and relishes the beauty of the new place. However, trips are not always sweet, they can be sour too. Sometimes it can be baggage loss or loss of valuable items that can create unwanted situations, or sometimes it can be a sudden illness that may spoil the trip. For all such situations, a travel insurance plan works as a boon because it not only covers cashless medical treatments in a foreign land, but it also shields one from the problem of baggage and/or passport loss.
