Broken links: Since November, 2005, I have written over 300+ blog entries with 1,000's of corresponding links/URLs for Moving2Italy2, covering a varied and wide range of topics.

I wish to thank you in advance for assisting me in the ongoing maintenance and the updating of this successful and informative blog.

Please note: I do NOT represent or endorse any of these links nor do I receive payment for listing them in my blog.

My wife and I have bought travel insurance before we moved to Italy for three main reasons:
  1. My wife had an elderly mother who lived alone.
  2. While both of us are reasonably healthy, you just never know.
  3. I had been laid off from my job (Information Technology) several times because of company mergers, corporate downsizing or economic conditions.
While our circumstances have changed, we still buy travel insurance when we travel because of the uncertainty of the travel industry (airlines going bankrupt or out of business, unexpected delays, etc.) and our awareness of our health situation. I am now in my 60's and my wife is in her 50's.

The reason that I did not list any specific travel insurance providers is because what may be a good policy for someone in my age group and interests may differ from someone else. There are many companies that provide travel insurance and you should select one that meets your specific needs and requirements. Please pay attention to the small print, restrictions on activities and types of travel, pre-existing medical/health conditions and age of insured individual(s).

That's it for Friday, 26 October 2007: venerdì, 28 ottobre 2007.
