In today’s world, you wouldn’t leave home without a face mask or locking the door to your house. Taking simple protective precautions is important no matter where you are, and travel is no exception. Your health, wellbeing, belongings and financial investment are at stake wherever in the world you may be. The easy answer to creating peace of mind is purchasing travel insurance.
When you plan a trip with us, we ensure that every itinerary is quoted with travel insurance. We can even customize your coverage based on individual needs and concerns! Travel insurance is optional, but we always recommend it.
Here are the top 5 reasons you should purchase travel insurance on all of your trips:
- Trip Cancellation Coverage
Life is full of unpredictable circumstances-some of which can unfortunately force you to cancel your travel plans. Without travel insurance, a cancelled trip can be non-refundable or imposed with significant penalty fees. Spare yourself a financial loss of hundreds to thousands of dollars by purchasing a policy with trip cancellation coverage.
- Sickness, Injury and Death
What if a family member is hospitalized or passes away before you leave? What if you or a travel partner needs medical attention before or during your trip? A travel insurance policy can help cushion these stressful and sensitive situations. You can even choose to have specific conditions or health concerns covered in some policies.
- Natural Disaster Coverage
When the weather takes a turn and causes travel delays or even a forced cancellation, we’ll help get you home or make alternate arrangements. Additional costs that may incur as a result can be covered by a travel insurance policy instead of coming out of your pocket.
- Trip Interruptions or Delays
Having travel insurance soothes many anxieties that can arise over delayed or cancelled flights. Similarly, events that interrupt your vacation such as injuries or lost passports can be covered through a travel insurance policy.
- Lost or Stolen Baggage
Waiting for your personal items to arrive at baggage claim isn’t fun…especially if they don’t arrive. In the event that your luggage is lost or personal items are stolen from you, travel insurance can reimburse you. The reimbursement can even include necessary items that you need to buy during your trip to replace lost or stolen items.
