Traveling and new countries are always cool. However, sometimes avid travelers forget their common sense in pursuit of new experiences. If you are one of them, then know that tourism can sometimes be dangerous. A trip to a country that is not very suitable for recreation without proper security measures can turn out to be very sad. Nowadays there are still many countries in the world where the situation is tense due to military conflicts, crime, and diseases. And if you still want to visit some of them, you should not save on travel insurance. Find out more about it here, and in order to protect you from reckless travel, we have compiled a list of countries where insurance is the thing that you should take with you even earlier then you will take your passport, phone, and camera.
The Сentral African Republic
The Central African Republic is in the heart of Africa (surprise!). This is one of the most sparsely populated and poor (one more surprise!) сountries of the continent. The history of this state is not much different from the history of other African countries. These were such stages as Independence from the French in 1960, revolution, dictator (cannibal Bokassa), revolution, civil war, revolution, famine, civil war. Today, the picture is complemented by a high level of crime, the dubious quality of drinking water and local diseases, to which visitors do not have immunity.
Despite the fact that Mexico is now very popular among tourists, it also has a high crime rate. Of course, this is a country of ancient Indian empires with interesting monuments and beautiful beaches, but political tensions, corruption, abductions, and crime are not very good conditions for rest. Here you should be careful, do not walk alone and in the evenings, do not visit poor areas, and you should leave valuables in the hotel. Items about the theft of valuables, and the loss of a passport must be included in the insurance when traveling here.
The Philippines is more than seven thousand islands, where people are mostly friendly and hospitable. However, there are areas, or rather islands, that you should never visit without insuring yourself from everything and everyone. The most dangerous regions are the Sulu, Tavi-Tawi, Basilan, Zamboanga, Mindanao and North Cotabato archipelago. Here, apart from robberies and very strong drug mafia, there is another danger. In the cafe, tourists can get a drug that in a few minutes will deprive a person of consciousness mixed in coffee. So tourists lose not only money and jewelry, but sometimes the kidneys and other parts of the body.
Brazil is becoming increasingly popular among tourists. However, going to Brazil, do not forget that this country is not too developed, and there is still a very high level of crime. The local mafia rarely touches tourists, they are very passionate about drug trafficking. But anyone who has lost vigilance can become victims of pickpockets, so all valuables should be left in hotels. This country is also dangerous from the point of view of health care – lately more patients with dengue fever and yellow fever have appeared here. For this reason, carefully read the paragraphs relating to medical services in your travel insurance contract.
