That's the first thing you should arrange before travelling anywhere but I think when you're younger you never think you're going to get sick or have an accident, I wonder how many backpackers have insurance.

Very very silly. I feel for him but he is old enough to know better. As they say, if you can't afford insurance, you can't afford to travel.

On this subject, a friend of mine has a relative that had a very bad fall in Thailand recently when a balcony collapsed. She suffered spinal injuries. Thankfully she was insured as she was in hospital for a few weeks there before being medi-vacced home first class with a doctor and nurse accompanying her. Without insurance...

Probably so he can't run away without paying the bill. Not that it seems that would be a concern judging by the look of the bloke.

Cheers
