What's the general thought on travel insurance - Always get? Never get? Only for certain countries/circumstances? I'm curious in what the board's thoughts are on this...

Check by each travel insurance provider for which reason they allow to use which such insurance, and what rate they will ask for that

First you get better medical coverage. Also the credit card company's usually give you a run around when making a claim, the travel insurances dont.

IME depends on the situation, and how much they stand to lose.

I've been searching for a good affordable travel insurance for a trip to Israel this summer. There are so many recommendations. So my question is which one to choose for 1 adult & 3 children for six weeks to Israel?
