World Nomads provides travel insurance and travel safety services worldwide and recommended by Lonely Planet.
AirCare travel insurance from Berkshire Hathaway offers generous compensation for a fixed rate of $25. Delays of two or more hours get you $50; if you miss a connection, there’s a $250 payout. And tarmac delays of more than two hours get you $1,000. (A bag delayed by 12 hours is worth $500.) You can purchase a policy up to 24 hours before departure time and payments are often instantaneous — wired into your bank or PayPal account.
This website is a compilation of tips from people from all walks of life who love to travel. In the process of planning my own trip, I came across stories of so many adventuresome spirits who started with nothing but a dream to see the world. They were full of wisdom and advice on the many aspects of travel and with reams of inside scoops and tidbits to remember, I decided to set up a website where I can refer to resources I need at my fingertips. I update it frequently as I come across more information. In time, I hope to be able to add my own insights through the eyes of a boomer traveling solo.
