Studying abroad safely

June 9, 2009

As many students make the decision to travel abroad for international education they need to keep an eye out. It has become known that traveling abroad isn’t as safe as most people assume it to be.

Jenee Klotz, a young female who just recently returned from her time abroad fell victim to a violent crime overseas. Jenne’s mother, Kathy Lunardini, told USA Today this about the matter. “These people were supposed to care for my daughter. We were shocked and dumbfounded to find out that study-abroad programs are unregulated.”

Whether you are a student or a concerned parent, it is vital you take extra steps to ensure a safe experience. No one wants to fall victim to criminal acts but unfortunately that is the world we are living in today. A great option is to purchase travelers insurance so you know you will get the coverage you need, when you need it!
