    Warning, the Wall Street Journal wants you to pay $12 to read the article!
    Does anyone have any free info?

    Take the title of the article, put it into a search engine along with the words "Wall Street Journal". You should be able to read the article without charge.

    When travelling the most important part of travel insurance is health and repatriation cover! All other parts are generally not worth the cost as the cover provided and the excess makes claiming (if the claim is met!) hardly woth the bother and in any event houshold cover generall meets the claim. If possible take an old computer and if this is lost, stolen, or damaged it is not the end of the world (but ensure there are no security sensitive files and encrypt files).
