First time buying travel insurance

Jump to last reply


I'd like some advice on how to best go about purchasing travel insurance.

I'm going on a 42-day overland trek in Africa and need to have this insurance. My insurance agent suggested I use I did and pulled up many quotes. The tour operator suggested using a company in Colorado (Columbine) and have been sent quotes. My medical insurance from work and my credit card offer some, but limited coverage. I'm feeling overwhelmed!

Could anyone offer advice/tips? I know every situation is unique, but any feedback will help clear the clutter out of my brain! Thank in advance for any help.
