Most of us work very hard for our money and when we invest it into a vacation we want that investment to be safe. There are so many things that can go wrong after putting your hard earned money down and receiving your travel documents.
You should always allow for Murphy’s Law – “If something can go wrong, it will”. A sample of those things are:
You or someone in your party falls ill before or during your trip.
The weather decides not to cooperate
Your work has decided at the last minute they can’t do without you
Transportation strikes (air, rail, cruise etc)
Your flight gets delayed or worse – cancelled.
So many things – and you can be prepared by selecting the right travel protection with the help of your travel agent.
Always be up front with all information when going over travel protection plans. If there are pre-existing conditions, be prepared to lay it on the line because if something happens and it wasn’t disclosed, you could have the chance of losing your vacation costs.
I provide travel insurance through the best product I can find.
Great question. The answer is yes. Many travelers thinking their health insurance or free credit card insurance will completely cover their out of pocket expenses. However, that’s often not the case. Consider the reasons below for purchasing travel insurance for your journey.
According to the US Department of State - Bureau of Consular Affairs your domestic health insurance may cover “customary and reasonable” costs overseas. However, they often won’t pay for a medical evacuation back to the US which can cost upwards of $50,000. That’s where travel insurance plans can help.
There’s a good chance your credit card provides some coverage for travel insurance. It’s important to check what coverage you actually have as this can vary depending on your card type, and can even cost you additional funds to invoke. Credit card companies often have a number of conditions in order for their insurance to apply. For example, you may have had to pay for the entire trip using that credit card. For higher benefits coverage, purchase a specific travel insurance plan.
You don’t want to cancel a vacation, or lose the money you’ve invested. Cancel for a covered reason listed in your policy and Travel insurance can help.
If you’re traveling remotely you may not always have access to the best health care. Your health and safety is a priority. If an emergency medical evacuation is necessary, we will transport you to the nearest suitable hospital for treatment. Additional benefits include transportation of a visitor of your choice to stay with you or to transport any traveling children back home, should you become hospitalized.
