HI there,

I am planing my 2008 road trip to South Asia /India, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam.../ and I would like to know which travel insurance would you recommend, or you used and have been satisfied ... I live in Canada, and I am thinking about BCAA travel insurance or Nomad travel insurance... thank you

This is common question.
The stuff to look out for is: exclusions - what isn't included, this could effect what & where you want to go.
Make sure full medical cover is included (including medivac in case you need to be transferred).
Money/card/passport replacement.
24hr world-wide help line.

Take your time & read all the term & conditions as these will vary from policy to policy.

I use AMEX as i get discount from my card, but this does not cover some item's such as expensive cameras (although these are covered by my house insurance).

I also use my American credit card as I get not only discount but also get travel insurance.
