Why Travel Insurance?
You may wonder why you should buy special travel insurance for your vacation. It’s not just your investment you’ll be protecting; you’re also protecting yourself and your family. What if:

  • you are involved in an auto accident
  • you injure yourself before or during your trip
  • a non-traveling, covered, family member becomes sick, injured or dies
  • you lose your luggage during your trip
  • you have to cancel your vacation, or are delayed en route and miss your connection

What Travel Insurance Coverage Do You Need and Why?
Most experienced travelers have three travel insurance concerns:

  • Travel Protection for covering a loss of Prepaid Trip Costs.
  • Travel Health Insurance, including Medevac Insurance, for Medical Emergencies.
  • Baggage Protection for Protecting their Baggage from loss.

Travel Protection guards against disruptive events that could force you to cancel or interrupt a trip. Travel Health Insurance, including Medevac Insurance, is vital when your U.S. health plan may not cover you, such as in some overseas hospitals. Baggage Protection includes coverage for loss or delay of bags or personal effects.

Is Travel Insurance Always Necessary?
The following is quoted from the U.S. Department of State website ( under “Health Issues.”

“Obtaining medical treatment and hospital care abroad can be expensive, and medical evacuation to the U.S. can cost more than $50,000. Note that U.S. medical insurance is generally not accepted outside the United States, nor do the Social Security Medicare and Medicaid programs provide coverage for hospital or medical costs outside the United States.”

Not Just Medical Protection
Travel Insurance offers more then just medical protection. Sometimes there are unexpected situations that come up during your trip that are not health-related:

  • Would you want to pay $150 for an airport hotel because your flight got cancelled due to weather?
  • What happens if you miss a cruise due to a delayed flight and have to pay extra fees to fly to the next port of call to catch up to the cruise?
  • Do you know where the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate is if your passport gets stolen?
  • What happens if your bags do not make your connection and you have nothing to wear for 24 hours and no toothbrush?

These are only a couple of examples of common occurrences that can impact your trip. You are investing thousands of dollars in your vacation, why risk any more unnecessary expenses! For more information about our Travel Insurance services, contact one of our travel consultants.
