Travel protection for when you’re mixing work and leisure
It’s never been easier to unplug and take off, and many people are now able to work and study remotely anywhere, anytime assuming there’s good Wi-Fi, of course.
But travel glitches can come in all shapes and sizes, even with the most meticulous planning. If you’re planning on traveling whilst also working remotely, it might be worth considering how travel insurance could help if things don’t quite go to plan.
As work and schooling is becoming more flexible – especially since Covid – there is an emerging trend of more travelers and their families opting to take 'flexcations',extended stays away from home that are mixture of leisure and work, and even going to school remotely, either domestically or abroad.
If you’re planting yourself in a different place while working remotely and playing locally, you might want to consider the following when it comes to travel insurance. How long am I staying? Where am I staying? What kind of medical coverage might I need? Am I taking along personal belongings that I can’t stand to lose? Is my entire family covered? How much am I spending on pre-paid deposits?
Just as planning a trip requires a jumble of components, there is a lot to consider about travel insurance when taking a flexcation. The good news is that there are several ways that that travel insurance may be able to help on a trip that combines business and pleasure.
Whether you’re seeking a quiet haven or an outdoor adventure for your flexcation, World Nomads can offer coverage (up to the policy limits) for:
