The cities aren’t just big, they’re super sized, the history isn’t just old, it’s ancient, the jungles are practically pulsating with life and the beaches are pristine, tropical havens.

Today’s blog post comes from Flora Moffat, a Travel Expert in the STA Travel Goodge Street store, in London.
I remember the exact moment I found out that STA Travel were giving me the opportunity to go to Peru, I screamed the store down with excitement!
Peru had always been a country that I wanted to visit. A trip to Brazil earlier in the year really opened my eyes to South America, and how amazing and deep the culture is.
I began to research all the individual places and sites that we were going to see, and the reality of how beautiful and interesting Peru really was began to set it; and it was an easy 15-hour flight from London.
There were so many reasons I wanted to travel in Peru: it has so many natural and cultural treasures, and a deep history, as well as amazing food, handmade crafts, interesting cultures, and the yummy drinks.

I get it, travel insurance may not be the most exciting purchase you make as you prepare to take off on your trip, but I can promise you one thing – it’s definitely one of the most important.
To answer the question above, it’s absolutely essential to have travel insurance, and I’ll tell you why…
Insurance covers us against a whole manner of events that are completely out of our control, and, contrary to what some people believe, isn’t just for people who are planning on throwing themselves off bridges, diving to the depths of exotic oceans, or climbing massive mountain ranges.
