Your vacation is booked. You’ve added Points Protection to your reservation. In today’s changing travel environment, it’s important to help protect your travel investment so you can relax and enjoy your trip.
Here are five reasons why you should invest in travel insurance.
1. Trip Cancellation
If you're worried about the investment you've made — like that roundtrip airfare you've paid for in full before departure — then trip cancellation coverage will ease your mind. This type of coverage helps protect you, due to covered reasons, from unanticipated events like an accident at home or the passing of a loved one.
2. Someone Gets Sick
This is one of the most common causes of ruined vacations. If you or a travel companion were to get sick right before your planned trip and you have to cancel (medically imposed restrictions certified by a physician), you could lose the total cost of the trip. Or if a medical emergency occurs during your trip and you need to come home early, in many cases, there may be no reimbursement available. That’s where travel insurance could come in handy.
3. Damaged Destinations
When a hurricane or winter storm closes the airport for days keeping you from reaching the resort you’re heading to, you could lose the cost of airfare, side trips, and even what you’ve paid for the resort. Buying your travel insurance policy when you book your trip may help you get reimbursed for these costs.
4. Lost Luggage
Whether your luggage is lost, stolen, or damaged, it could get expensive to replace all the contents, including clothes, electronic devices, and medication. Travel insurance could help reimburse some of the cost of these items.
5. Medical Emergency While Traveling
Your health insurance often doesn't apply in foreign countries, so you could get stuck paying for an entire hospital stay. If you need to be flown to a hospital or evacuated for any reason, helicopter transport could cost you thousands of dollars. Travel insurance may reimburse you for these types of costs.
