    Often that last thing thought of before taking a trip abroad...........travel insurance.
    Reckless people risk not buying it, thinking nothing will happen to them.
    The guy above was foolish, but I still feel for him.

    Shame as well that Thailand doesn't take action about their horrific road stats.

    Very off putting....the guy would have lost his leg regardless of insurance.

    Still the carnage on the roads continues unabated with hardly an eyebrow raised.

    Major downside to the country.

    There is a difference between going away on holiday and not thinking of travel insurance

    And living somewhere and choosing to forgo insurance to save money..............which so many of these drop-outs do
    So sorry I feel bad he got injured but not a chance in hell I'd give money to him

    When you were a "drop-out" back in 04'-05', did you carry traveler's insurance?

    And for a whole year? (I thought the policies were limited to 6 months?)

    I got travel insurance included in my credit card.
    And while travelling my Belgian health care is valid. I just have to show my doctor, hospital and medecine receipts when returning home.

    I was surprised at how easy claiming my MB accident was with my work travel insurance when I got back to Canada

    I'm sure everyone is really impressed.

    "drop out": One who drops out of conventional society.

    Now, did you carry any travel insurance or not?

    As I am sure everyone is impressed with your descriptive explanation of your pension(which no joke, is impressive! wish I had that coming)You stated your factual finances, as did I.

    But onto your question..........it's irrelevant because the point I was making, and I know you aren't that dumb to understand, is I certainly wouldn't have needed a GoFundMe page if I had gotten into an accident

    So that is what I call a "drop out"
    Someone who wants to go travel or live overseas without putting in the hard work to afford it

    So....you didn't have any insurance?

    Not a question of being able to afford an accident, but rather using good judgement beforehand.

    I read somewhere insurance is for people who can't afford to be without it.

    Some might see it as a total rip off depending on your outlook.

    Again that wasn't point and it is pretty easy to understand what my point was

    But yes I had COBRA insurance from being laid off, which provided me with the same insurance I had at my previous job, which included travel insurance

    What an absurd comparison

    A 29yr old guy who should be in the work force making a living for himself not fcuking off living overseas when he doesn't have the money to

    Vs a 15yr old girl on holiday with her family that gets killed by a drunk driver


    Yeah those are totally the same

    Oh, by the way......her family didn't beg for money for her funeral to to fly her home


    If the 29yr old wants to live overseas with no money, that's his choice
    He just shouldn't expect a bail out
