The making of a great travel experience

Why do you travel?

For some, travel is a lifelong dream. Sitting on that plane for your first long-haul flight is like entering another world. Knowing that the next time you step outside you’ll be in another country gives you a rush of adrenalin that can only be beaten by that first step itself. That’s where the magic happens; it’s where a few nerves, a lot of excitement and plenty of uncertainty all round out to the beginning of some of the best experiences of your life.

For others, travel is a necessity, making work meetings possible and your career that little bit greater. Many find travel the answer to connecting with family and friends – the only cure to the homesickness that comes with being away from the people you love.

Whatever your reasons for travelling, your first step into a different country or city is a mix of new smells, foreign sounds, food you may not recognise, and a language you might not understand. It’s the feeling that you’re living life with everything it has to offer, and getting to experience the world around you.

What you don’t want is for things to turn sour. Injuries, getting sick, having things stolen or lost, tour cancellations – these are the things that make your trip not just hard work but sometimes hellish. You want to bring back great photographs, hilarious stories to tell your friends at your next dinner party, and a few souvenirs, not scars, bad memories and enormous medical bills. Just… yuck.

That’s where Woolworths Travel Insurance comes in. While we can’t stop these unfortunate events from happening (although we wish we could!), we can help make them easier to resolve.
