Sri Lanka Travel Insurance
The beautiful island of Sri Lanka is a fantastic holiday destination for those seeking a trip filled with culture, history and natural beauty. However, the country’s history of terrorism and political unrest can be offputting for travellers wanting to visit this part of the world, and in recent years Sri Lanka has gained a reputation as a dangerous location. The majority of visitors to the country will have a safe and enjoyable holiday, but it is important to be prepared before you travel and bear Sri Lanka safety advice in mind.
As in many countries across the world, the main, minor risks that travellers face in Sri Lanka are poor food hygiene standards, contaminated tap water or becoming the victim of pretty theft or a tourist scam. Sri Lanka has also been affected by terrorist activity in its capital city in recent years, and whilst security in the country has been increased and the likelihood of similar attacks is rare, travellers should be aware of the threat and exercise caution.
The risk of terrorist activity and the country’s history of civil unrest means that it is particularly important to purchase travel insurance before you travel to Sri Lanka. Whilst you are very unlikely to run into any trouble during your holiday, insurance will cover you in the case of any lost or stolen belongings or medical emergencies, and provide you with peace of mind as you travel.
Travel insurance is also important or if you have to cancel your trip to Sri Lanka last-minute, due to personal reasons or if something happens in the country that means it is no longer safe to travel.
