that's false. Travel insurance is far from a "must"

If the cost for insurance outweighs the original trip costs or rescheduling costs its a waste of money.

Hi James,
Thanks for sharing your views with me but in order to avoid adversities while traveling abroad and tackling medical and other unforeseen travel disasters, travel insurance should be one of the primary concerns of every traveler.
