Travel Insurance in Africa is essential. The risks of becoming unwell with infections is high is Africa with unsanitary conditions and impure drinking water. Infectious diseases such as Malaria require immediate medical care and can be fatal without treatment. Ongoing treatment, upfront fees and repatriation costs are unforeseen risks that travel insurance will cover.
Finally, do not forget to check the excess charges of your cover before you pay. What may be the cheapest policy, isn't always the best value. Always check how much of an excess you would have to pay if a certain outcome occurred. For example, if the value of your possessions is less than the excess you'd have to pay if you lost them, the benefit of that policy would be questionable.
