Many people dream of travelling abroad, sometimes nursing this dream for years, saving up and planning the perfect trip. Some would-be travellers even research and buy luggage, travel journals, and cameras years ahead in preparation. If you’re one of those people who keep putting off taking your dream trip abroad for one reason or another, here are three reasons now is the perfect time to pack your bags, invest in single trip holiday insurance, and buy that ticket.

The Price Is Right

Once upon a time, world travel was a luxury only the very rich could afford; not-so-rich people could save for years and still not be able to afford to leave the country. Today, with advancements in transportation and communications technology, cheap airline tickets abound, especially if you’re not picky with regards to seating or time of flight. In addition, many travel agencies, auction sites, and coupon services also offer major discounts, both for single and group travellers, not only for airfare, but also for accommodations, tours, and even meals. Of course, cancelled flights and lost reservations are a possibility, but fortunately, having single trip holiday insurance means your investment is safe as it provides coverage against financial loss in such situations. (Just make sure you purchase a policy as soon as you've booked your ticket and accommodation.)

Keeping In Touch Has Never Been Easier

One of the most common reasons people find it difficult to travel overseas is the thought leaving their whole lives behind. They can’t bear the idea of being away from their loved ones (even their pets!), or worry that something will go wrong at home or work and they’ll have no way of knowing. Modern communications and satellite technology have brought the days of being unreachable to an end; these days, you could be in the middle of a jungle and still have phone reception. Portable communication devices such as smartphones, tables, and even ultraportables mean you can video chat with the people back at home as often as you want to. And don’t worry about risking bringing such expensive devices with you on your travels; with a decent single trip holiday insurance policy you'll be eligible for financial compensation in the event of lost, stolen, or damaged property during your trip.

The World Is Getting Smaller

Yes, the world is getting smaller; with advancements in transportation and communications, even distant destinations are becoming more connected and accessible. This is a good news/bad news situation: travel is easier and cheaper, which has the unfortunate side effect of more tourists and commercialisation, even in previously "remote" places. Even so-called eco-tourism is definitely having an effect on previously pristine areas and many important natural attractions are being deluged with visitors. Be sure to bring take a camera to document your travels, as these many sites risk being significantly changed or damaged in the future.

For all these reasons, and many more, now is a great time to travel! Purchase a good single trip holiday insurance policy, pack your bagsFree Reprint Articles, and get out there and explore.
