One thing we know for certain these days: Life can change quickly and not always in the way we would like. If you’re considering traveling for business or leisure, travel insurance can help give you peace of mind in case not everything goes as expected.
If you’re not sure you need travel insurance, consider these reasons others have found it valuable:
No matter how well we plan in advance, sometimes we need to suddenly cancel a trip. Airlines, cruise lines, or hotels may offer minimal or no refund for abrupt cancellations. Having travel insurance can provide you with an extra layer of protection, should you need to change your plans for a covered reason.
Unfortunately, just because you are on vacation, doesn’t mean you are immune to accidents or illness. And, to make things worse, your health insurance might not cover any of your expenses if you’re in a foreign country. But travel insurance with emergency medical benefits can help pay for expenses due to covered medical and dental emergencies that occur during your trip – and may even help you coordinate your trip home so you can get treated by your own doctor.
Frequent travellers know that it is very common for flights to run behind schedule, which can cause significant delays in your trip. But with travel insurance, you’ll be compensated for the delay which can be used to pay for your accommodations or meals.
If your luggage gets lost temporarily or permanently when you are traveling, travel insurance will reimburse you for essential items that you need so your day-to-day can go on like nothing ever happened.
