The Truth About Travel Protection
Travel Protection provides valuable financial protection against a wide range of unforeseen situations that can happen before or during your trip. Many people don’t realize this, but most of the time government health plan coverages, credit card coverages, or employee benefit plan coverages aren’t sufficient to cover your travel expenses, especially while traveling out of the country.
Most people assume travel protection is mainly for medical emergencies, but in reality, there is a wide range of unexpected events that are covered, such as:
Unexpected illness before your trip
Unavoidable travel delay — covers meals, accommodations, and more
Canceled flight/cruise (very common these days — think: bad weather, transportation strikes, mechanical breakdowns, etc.)
Lost or stolen personal items — reimbursement for necessary medications, clothing, jewelry, and other personal items.
Financial insolvency of a travel supplier — if a company goes out of business before you arrive, you don’t lose all that money! - This coverage is not available with all suppliers)
The estimated cost of travel protection is about 7-10% of your total trip cost and can save you from headaches, worries — and in the event of a medical emergency, it can save you thousands of dollars.
Just like your car, health, and life insurance — it must be purchased before you actually need it. In this case, prior to your travel departure date.
