Travel Insurance: Don’t Leave Home Without It!
You’re all packed and ready for the vacation of a lifetime. But there is one thing you may have overlooked that can protect you and your wallet before, during and after your trip, namely a travel insurance plan.
On some level, the type of travel insurance policy you need depends on your existing insurance coverage. Your personal health, homeowner’s and auto coverage offers some protection. Also, credit card companies provide travel benefits for lost bags, car rental mishaps and missed connections. U.S. airlines also will pay up to about $1,500 (U.S.), depending on currency fluctuations, for bags that are lost, stolen or damaged on international flights.
But none of these policies and benefits compare with travel insurance in covering your real costs in time, expense and inconvenience when the unexpected happens.
So there is good reason to consider a comprehensive travel insurance policy that will protect your travel investment against a wide range of potential problems like lost luggage, rental car accidents, delayed or missed connections or trip cancellation due to sickness, injury or death.
