A Beginner’s Guide To Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance

STEP ONE. Ensure that you have learnt the basic terms found in travel insurance policies. Learning the difference between ‘single trip cover’ and ‘annual cover’, or ‘golf cover’ and ‘winter sports insurance’ will help you to base your decision on your own specific needs.

STEP TWO. Now that you understand the basic terminology, you can start to assess your own needs. Think about what kind of traveller you are, where you’ll be going, and what kind of risks you might come across. It’s vital that you don’t miss this step, as you need to know that you’re covered for all eventualities.

STEP THREE. It’s also important that you understand the more complex terms used in travel insurance. This way, when you’re faced with the full policy wording you won’t be caught out by any industry mumbo jumbo. Try having a look at some sample policies online, which most insurance companies now provide.

STEP FOUR. Do some investigation amongst your nearest and dearest, finding out why they chose their policies. Do remember, of course, that every traveller has specific needs and requirements for their holiday, so you can’t rely entirely on the advice of others. However, this can be an easy way to begin your search.

STEP FIVE. These days, it seems like everywhere you go you’ll always come across adverts for price comparison sites. Though the adverts are generally quite annoying, comparison sites can actually be very helpful in letting you view the pros and cons of different policies side by side. Don’t be tempted to rely on them completely, but do have a look at them to see if they can answer any questions your research has opened up.

STEP SIX. Never underestimate the importance of research. Whilst advice from friends, family and comparison sites can seem very helpful, it is ultimately down to you to get the top deal out there for your trip. Research may feel a bit arduous at the beginning, but you’ll be thankful of it should you need to make a claim on your policy after your holiday.

In the end, it’s really quite simple to sort out your travel insurance policy. To get the best deal possible you will have to put in a bit of time and effort, but at least then you relax, certain that your holiday is in safe hands.

Travel Jobs – Make Adventure Your Career!

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.” – Helen Keller

I want to open your eyes a bit to the wonderful opportunities the world has to offer. Other than spending 8-plus hours a day in a tiny cubicle, slaving away at something you hate, there are scores of things that you can do to make money in exciting, adventurous ways.

For most of these jobs you don’t need to be young or physically fit. You don’t need to have special training, or training that is not easily acquired. You just need to realize that they’re there and go and get ’em.

There are jobs that pay you to travel. There are jobs that give you free room and board. There are jobs that take you sailing, horse-back riding, mountain-hiking and to exotic islands. There are even jobs that pay you to dine at fancy restaurants.

The list of exciting travel and adventure jobs that are available to you is almost limitless. You can literally pick and choose what excites you the most. And if in the rare case your dream-job doesn’t exist – you can create it.

Did you know that:

There are literally thousands of commercial fishing companies in Alaska that are always looking for new employees. Most of them will pay for your round-trip airfare from Seattle to Alaska, give you free room and board and pay you $2,000 to $10,000 a month (with experience you could earn even more).

English teachers are in high demand around the world. Institutes and private individuals will pay you just for showing people something that you already know. Usually, no special certificates are required (you don’t even need to speak the local language), and you can make $200 a day by teaching English as a foreign language. Teach in Thailand, Japan, Brazil – wherever.

You can buy highly-prized items for dirt-cheap in countries around the globe, then sell them for huge profits. (Gold jewelry could cost you $100, you sell it for $1,000, earning you a profit of $900). One of the best ways to sell these items is through online auctions like eBay – and if you do it right you’ll be able to run your auction business from anywhere in the world.

There are humanitarian organizations, like the Peace Corps, that pay for your room and board, and give you a monthly income. You’ll be able to travel to foreign lands, help people, and get paid for it.

Your travel photographs are worth $$$. There are several places online (check out Shutterstock.com and iStock.com) where you can post your pictures. Every single time one of your pictures gets downloaded, you earn a commission. Once a picture is posted it stays there for as long as you like, and you continue to earn residual income from it, from anywhere in the world. Imagine how much you could earn each month with 1,000 pictures posted on several different sites.

Countless websites, magazines, newspapers and trade journals want your travel stories. When you write about your travel experiences these publications pay you for it. Also, when you show restaurants, tour agencies and hotels your writing credentials, they will often give you a big discount on their services.

Wildfires spring-up during the hot, summer months. They threaten forests, wildlife and homes. The people that fight these fires get room, board and travel expenses paid for. Plus, they get paid their standard hourly-wage, overtime pay, time and a half pay, and even hazard pay. Wildland firefighters consistently make thousands of dollars every week.

I could go on, but I think you get the idea. There is absolutely no reason at all to stay in a boring, unfulfilling job that you hate when so many fun, exciting and adventurous opportunities are out there.

Life should be an adventure. There are scores of adventurous job opportunities waiting for you to take advantage of them. So why wait? Get started today.

Green Lantern Costumes – Join The Exclusive Green Lantern Corps

DC Comics’ Green Lantern has remained a staple member of the comic book company’s superhero franchise for decades. Intergalactic plots, aliens and monsters of all kinds, and an all-powerful hero go together to make this superhero one of the most popular superheroes today, in his signature Green Lantern Costume.

Bearing an emerald power ring that can create anything from the bearer’s imagination, as well as an extraordinary amount of willpower, each member of the Green Lantern Corps can become a one-man army, protecting denizens of the universe from threats and crimes of the most unusual nature.

The Corps selects its members based on two different categories: the ability to feel no fear, and the ability to confront fear head-on. Each member is given a Green Lantern Costume, a Power Ring, and a Power Battery.

The Power Battery is connected to a larger, more powerful Power Battery in Oa, the Planet where the Lantern’s creators, the Guardians of the Universe, reside. The rings can last for 24 hours, at which point they are recharged through the portable Power Battery each Lantern carries.

Although the ability of the rings to conjure any object is unparalleled by any technology in the DC Comics Universe, it is still limited by the amount of willpower and imagination of the bearer. No one knows this more than those designated to protect Earth. That’s why they must maintain iron will power.

In current continuity, Earth – classified as Sector 2814 – is watched over and has produced not just one, but four Green Lanterns. Hal Jordan was the first and most prominent member. Jordan’s duties were often supported by his backup, hot-headed Guy Gardner and architect John Stewart.

When Hal Jordan became possessed by Parallax, an entity made of fear, his power ring was then given to the fourth member of Earth, Kyle Rayner. Jordan, Gardner, Stewart and Rayner have each had their share of fame in the DC Universe, having been part of organizations such as the Corps and Earth’s premier superhero organization, the Justice League.

The latest installment of the Green Lantern adventures was released in June 2011. Now, costume wearers, avid fans, and superhero costume collectors can add a new piece to their set of ensembles by owning a Green Lantern Costume. And the best part…they can choose to be your favorite character. From the protectors of the universe to their arch enemies, there’s an outfit for them all.
