Travel Medical Insurance: Why it's important

First, our heartfelt condolences to Stefanie Schaffer, a young woman who recently lost both legs in a tragic boating accident while on a cruise in the Bahamas when the boat she was on exploded.

To make matters worse, Ms Schaffer was an aspiring dancer.

And to pile on, she apparently had neglected (declined?) to purchase travel medical insurance. Assuming this was a week-long cruise, a $1million dollar plan with a $1,000 deductible from our friends at Global Underwriters would have set her back a measly $15.

A small price to pay in comparison to the $50,000 she's hoping to raise through GoFundMe.

A painful, and expensive, lesson learned.
