The human touch can transform an insurance product from cold and impersonal to necessary and real. Claims examples are a way to prove our point and demonstrate the importance of travel insurance, as you can see from this true story:

A 59-year-old was driving on an icy stretch of road in northern California when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into an embankment at 90 km/h. He sustained numerous injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital where he underwent several emergency surgeries. He then spent nine days recovering before being discharged.
