Travel can bring great joy and relaxation. It can also bring aggravation, frustration and large medical bills if your trip is cancelled, your luggage is lost or you need medical attention while traveling. According to the US Travel Insurance Association (www.ustia.org), 1 in 6 American travelers (17%) are impacted by medical conditions, natural disaster, or carrier-caused delay.
Give yourself peace of mind by purchasing a travel insurance policy. Travel policies can cover:
Trip Cancellation/Interruption – You can be reimbursed for pre-paid or non-refundable costs if the cancellation is for a covered reason. Some covered reasons are: injury, sickness or death of you, a traveling partner or family member; Severe weather events that cause cancellations; Bankruptcy of a travel supplier; you or traveling companion are terminated or laid off from employment.
Emergency Medical/Dental Coverage – While no one plans to get sick or injured while traveling it does happen. You may have personal health coverage that can cover you but some do not cover you if you are traveling internationally. A travel insurance plan with emergency medical evacuation can even help with transporting the patient back home. The cost of needing medical attention when traveling can be in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
