As we’ve all realized over the past few years, unexpected things can happen that impact your travel plans. Whether it’s an unforeseen illness, accident, weather-related issue, or something happens while you’re abroad, no one ever wants to cancel a trip at the last minute or have plans change on the fly, but things happen. Some travel operators will offer packages inclusive of protection, but often, the ability to get refunds or protection before you leave or while you’re on vacation are not available through your tour, cruise, all-inclusive package, or flights.
Unexpected situations do happen and having travel insurance can prevent losing money you’ve invested in your trip, out-of-pocket expenses while you are away, or undue stress overall. Travel insurance can help by covering eligible costs related to:
- Emergency medical care
- Cancellation or interruption of your trip
- Baggage issues such as theft or loss
