Travel Insurance is optional, but we highly recommend it. Things can happen when you’re traveling that are out of your control and unforeseen circumstances can occur at anytime, to anyone, anywhere. An emergency just before and during your vacation such as an inconvenient flight delay, a cancellation for sickness, or a truly serious medical emergency, may force you to cancel or interrupt your trip.Buy TravelSafe Should this happen, the last thing you want to worry about is the money you could lose.
In 2012, there were at least 11 natural disasters that cost $1 billion or more in damage and disrupted travel including Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Irene in the U.S., and Typhoon Bopha and Tropical Storm Washi in the Philippines. In 2011, the usual issues were reported as well as unanticipated events that stranded travelers and disrupted travel plans including the Japan 8.9 magnitude earthquake & tsunami and Icelandic volanic eruption, and European transportation strikes (Germany air traffic controllers, British Airways, and France’s train operators.)
When selecting a travel insurance policy we recommend that get coverage for medical expenses including emergency evacuation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects.
Here are some of the main reasons to get travel insurance:
Reimbursement for cancellation penalties (which can be 100% of your investment) in the event of an unforeseeable illness, injury or death of you, your travel companion or a family member.
Reimbursement for cancellation penalties if you are called for jury duty, your home is damaged due to fire, windstorm, flood or vandalism or military leave cancelled.
Health insurance coverage while traveling outside of the U.S. as many health insurance companies limit or do not provide coverage outside of the U.S.
Reimbursement for unused portion of your trip if it is interrupted.
Medical evacuation/repatriation expenses to an appropriate medical facility or back home in the event of a serious illness or injury while traveling.
24-hour help line for any travel emergency, such as medical, lost tickets, lost passports, and other travel documents.
