International Gaming: Gaming Conventions

If you’re traveling across the globe for a convention, you’ll need more than just twelve-sided dice and character sheets. Be sure to have your passport and proof of international travel insurance, so that you’re ready for any LARP-induced injuries during your international gaming stay. Even if you have health insurance coverage, having international coverage ensures that you’ll get the medical attention you need if you fall ill.

Anatomy of a Gaming Con Traveler

Game Conventions Traveler

If you’re traveling across the globe for a convention, you’ll need more than just twelve-sided dice and character sheets. Be sure to have your passport and proof of international travel insurance, so that you’re ready for any LARP-induced injuries during your stay. Even if you have health insurance coverage, having international coverage ensures that you’ll get the medical attention you need if you fall ill.

When you’re traveling for a convention, your most pressing tasks should be how many people are sharing your hotel room and how many panels you can attend. Taking the extra time to make sure you’ve got the right travel coverage shouldn’t be one of them – so plan ahead and contact Atlas visitor insurance before you game.
