Keeping yourself insured on the road can be a minefield of red tape – and even then, many policies have strategic gaps in what they will and won’t cover. On this episode of Travel Genius, hosts Mark Ellwood and Nikki Ekstein break down the basics of travel insurance and flag a potential law that could simplify this problem.

Then Jessica Nabongo, better known as “The Catch Me If You Can,” joins the conversation. She’s an Instagram influencer, travel specialist and blogger who is on a mission to become the first black woman to visit every country in the world. Nabongo shares some of the wisdom she’s learned on the road, including the smartest time of year to book a trip to any destination and her unexpected picks of need-to-see places in Africa. Even better, she’s also developed a foolproof way to avoid ever being forced to check a carry on bag.
