You planned and saved for this trip, scheduled vacation time, and arranged for a pet sitter, but what about the unexpected storm that caused the airport to close and your flight to be cancelled. Lost luggage? An accident? Food poisoning? Whether you’re traveling for a two-week trip to South America, snowboarding for a week in Canada or rafting the Tijuana River, you’ll want to consider getting travel insurance to protect your travel investment.
Depending on the policy, travel insurance may provide for a wide range of coverage such as: trip costs due to cancellations or interruptions, trip delays due to lost or stolen passports, injury, sickness, natural disasters, baggage delays, lost or stolen sports equipment and personal effects, etc.
Travel insurance is optional, however, we strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance.
Here is a list of travel insurance options for you to consider:
- Your existing credit card. Just like rental car coverage, travel coverage may be in your benefits package if you purchase the trip with your credit card.
- Your home/car insurance. Your existing insurance provider may offer additional travel insurance at a discount.
