Sri Lanka, the exotic Emerald island nation in the Indian ocean is also known as Serendip and was Ceylon before officially becoming the Democratic Socialist republic of Sri Lanka. The small island nation of about 20 million has plenty to offer international tourists, it is renowned for its Tea and Spice gardens, rich tropical flora and fauna, multicultural history with Hindu, Buddhist and European influences and is home to many Buddhist temples and monasteries.

Amongst its many tourist attractions are the 12th century Dambulla Buddhist Cave Temple, Galle the beautiful 16th century European fort city, Sigiriya an incredible giant rock formation and a world heritage site, Polonnaruwa an amazing ancient ruined city, Anuradhapura the historic capital of the Kingdom of Rajarata, the Buddhist temple of tooth in Kandy, Nuwara Eliya renowned for its tea gardens and landscapes.

However the country attracts very few international tourists. One of the reasons is the onerous task of getting a visa to visit the country.

What is the purpose of travel insurance?

There are two main purposes of travel insurance. One is to insure the value of your invested cost in your trip in case something comes up which means you are not able to go on your trip. This type of insurance is called trip cancellation insurance or trip insurance. Typically, you insure your trip for a certain amount (the non-reimbursable portion of your deposit) and the higher the amount, the higher the cost of the insurance. Some of these policies have a set limit on their amount (but they are consequently more economical). Some credit card companies offer insurance on what you purchase with your card (so airline tickets and hotel reservations, perhaps) and no more. Most of these policies also cover you in case you are sick while you are on your trip or have to interrupt your trip for some reason (death in family back home, problem with home or business, etc). If you want health coverage while on your trip, be sure that the policy includes this (my own credit card coverage does NOT include this coverage). There are also health insurance policies that cover you for sudden illness or accident while you are on your trip. If you cancel your trip, you can simply cancel them for a refund on your premium, but they will cover any medical expenses (after a deductible) while you are on your trip and also have some minor travel benefits, such as baggage loss and trip interruption as well.
