We have always utilized and recommended travel insurance. We stress travel insurance now more than ever due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus Covid-19. It can cover your expenses if you need to cancel your trip. You ask what reasons are there for me to cancel my trip, return home early or have to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling? See the following common reasons as well as unforeseen circumstances that will demonstrate the importance of purchasing travel insurance:
Number 1 reason. We have all seen and heard the heartfelt stories of travelers being stranded due to government travel restrictions and regulations.
You and the family arrive at the airport for a connecting flight, only to find that your flight was cancelled. Who can assist you with securing new flights to get every one home?
You're involved in an accident while on an excursion and adequate medical treatment is not available. Who will arrange and pay for a medical evacuation?
If your child becomes seriously ill and your trip must be cancelled. What happens to your non-refundable deposits or pre-payments?
The airline, cruise line or tour operator you booked through goes bankrupt. Who will assist you with getting to your destination? Who will pay for your non-refundable expenses?
You arrive in Mexico, but your luggage didn't. Who will help you find it, if it's lost? What if it's delayed, who will pay for your necessities? Who will pay to replace it, if it was stolen?
Your grandma's bag was lost with her medication inside. Who do you call to get your emergency prescription filled?
You are at a Florida beach resort and forced to evacuate due to an approaching hurricane.
Who will help you evacuate and reimburse you for the lost vacation investment?
A terrorist incident occurs two weeks before your scheduled arrival in the destination you are planning to visit. If you want to cancel your trip, is that covered and who will assist?
Your passport and wallet are stolen while in Paris. How will you get your passport replaced and obtain emergency cash?
God forbid, if someone in your party dies while abroad, how will the body get home?
The best way to protect your vacation investment is by purchasing travel insurance. Travel insurance can provide the reassurance and peace of mind that you need in the event of cancellations, flight delays, lost luggage or passports, medical emergencies and any other unexpected incidents.
Travel insurance can minimize the considerable financial risks of traveling: accidents, illness, missed flights, canceled tours, lost/damaged baggage, theft, terrorism, travel company bankruptcies, emergency evacuation and getting your body home if you should die. Each traveler’s potential loss varies, depending on how much of your trip is prepaid, refundable air ticket, health state, luggage value, where you’re traveling, airline and tour company financial health,
coverage you already have i.e. medical insurance, homeowners or renters insurance and/or credit card.
Travel insurance is highly recommended but not required. What are the chances you’ll need it? Are you willing to take the risk? How important is peace of mind to you? Consider and understand your options, make an informed decision for your trip. The best way to protect your vacation investment is by purchasing travel insurance. We highly advise all travelers to consider purchasing travel insurance.
