Back in 1978, I lived in Europe and the UK for 15 months. I bought a car while I was there, and had it insured, but didn’t realise travel insurance even existed. I was just lucky nothing happened to me!
Quite simply, if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel. The last thing you want is not to be able to afford medical treatment or to be flown home with medical supervision, if you need it. Apart from the huge medical expenses you’ll avoid if you have the appropriate travel insurance, just think of the practicalities of being overseas and not being admitted to hospital, unless you can prepay with your credit card. In many countries, they will literally turn you away at the hospital door if they can’t be guaranteed payment. Frightening, but true.
