8 surprising facts from around the world

Did you know we had a mobile app? Well, you should do because we wrote a post about it in June. If you haven’t downloaded it already, it does lots of nifty little things – like helping you find hospitals and embassies while you’re abroad – but the feature we’re most excited about is the one that’s probably the least useful…

From the home screen of the app, you can swipe or shake your phone to get a totally useless but totally fascinating fact about a country. We did a lot of research to find some genuinely amazing and surprising facts.

To whet your appetite, here are eight of our favourite facts:

Here are some of the other things the InsureandGo mobile app can do:

  • Holiday countdown – Tell us where and when you’re going away and, in the week before your holiday, we’ll tell you an interesting fact about your destination each day to get you excited!
  • Important information for while you’re away – We can help you find local embassies, hospitals, police stations, taxi ranks and more, wherever you are
  • Download your policy details – Store your insurance details on your phone so you don’t have to take any boring, bulky documents away with you
  • Get help in an emergency – If something bad happens while you’re away, get in touch with us with the click of a button

About Dom Stapleton

As well as being the world’s northernmost capital city, Reykjavik in Iceland is also an incredible place to visit.

We stayed in a hotel right in the middle of the city and spent most days walking around from there. The main thing we noticed (apart from the cold, of course) was that the people are so friendly. At home, trying to cross the road is a nightmare, but in Reykjavik, the cars are literally queuing up to let you across.

When my partner and I went, in January 2013, the sun only started rising at about 10 am, which was a strange experience. And it got dark at about 4 pm each day!
