Benefits of Travel Insurance you need to know
Travel insurance is one type of insurance that provides protection while we travel both domestically and abroad. So you can still travel in peace. Especially in an uncertain situation like today. What if when you bought tickets in advance but you got sick, or even worse, the trip had to be canceled for one reason or another at the destination.
Some people may still be unfamiliar with travel insurance, but some countries in the world have even required travelers or newcomers to have travel insurance, for example, countries in Europe and America. What are the benefits of travel insurance?
Basically travel insurance covers for trip cancellation and interruption; emergency medical care; personal accident and it compensates the traveller for additional expenses that may occur due to these losses. However, please note that there are things that are not covered by travel insurance, for example if the destination country is not safe either due to natural disasters, war or terrorism. So, in order to apply for/have this travel insurance, in general, there are several conditions that you must fulfill:
- Photocopy/scan of ID card
- Insurance application form
- Photocopy of passport (for overseas travel)
- Age limit
What to do after a car accident
When you get into a car accident, there are certain steps you may want to take in order to help make sure everyone is safe, to follow the law and to get the insurance claim process started.
First, check your car and the passenger. If your car is safe to drive and is causing a hazard where it is, pull it to the side of the road. Otherwise, leave it where it is and get yourself to safety.
Second, if you're injured, call police or ambulance, secure the vehicle and ask for help. If you're seriously injured, try not to move, and wait for emergency personnel.
Third, notify your insurer and start the claims process. Call the insurance maximum 5 working days.
An accident can leave even the most seasoned driver frazzled, but following these steps may help protect you from unnecessary worries. That way, you can focus on working with your insurance company to get your vehicle repaired as smoothly and as quickly as possible.

Driving Tips on Uphill Road
Driving on uphill road conditions is often a challenge. Moreover, the contours of the roads that are passed are quite diverse, ranging from climbs, steep descents, slippery and dense vehicles alias jammed. In fact, parking at the mall sometimes has narrow roads due to the limited building area. In general, there are three aspects that cause a car to fail to climb, namely the road surface factor, the condition of the vehicle and the driver himself. Road condition means a condition where the sandy road is steep, potholed or slippery which has the potential to make the vehicle fail to climb. While the condition of the vehicle that is not powered may be due to lack of maintenance, tires, small cc engine power but a lot of cargo. While the driver factor, for example, the skill of the driver to master the vehicle when on an uphill road.
Because, in this situation, the driver tends to panic, then reflexively steps on the gas so that the system perceives a sudden spike in vehicle acceleration.
This is very dangerous, because tire slippage can occur, making the momentum to go on an incline lost. As a result, instead of moving forward, the car is going backwards. The driver must adjust the momentum and step on the gas pedal (acceleration) which regulates the engine rotation rhythm and is not too high so that the car can still climb without slipping.
