Most of us aren’t old enough to remember a time when Americans could travel freely to Cuba.

Travel insurance is something nobody wants to think about, because, of course, insurance is only needed at the worst times. However, it’s necessary to purchase and keep, for the worst case scenarios.

Read carefully; every destination outside of the United States will have its own procedures, and you’ll want to make sure you have everything covered wherever you are headed.
If you’re a younger person, you may think serious travel, and long-term international vacation packages are just for older people, people well-off enough to afford the luxury of time away from work. Advertising may even lead you to believe this: Cruise commercials and vacation ads often show people in middle age or older, often married.
