Why Is Travel Insurance Important?
As its name suggests, travel insurance provides a versatile financial safety net during your trip. These policies are often customizable to suit your needs, preferences and budget, and may include coverage for many things that could go wrong during your journey. By purchasing adequate travel insurance, you can enjoy peace of mind during your trip, knowing you’ll have access to financial assistance if something goes wrong. Conversely, lacking coverage could leave you unable to recoup financial losses or manage a crisis while far from home.
What Does Travel Insurance Cover?
The details of travel insurance may vary, but several common components may be featured in most policies. When composing your travel insurance policy, ask your agent about coverage for the following:
- Trip cancellation or interruption—Your policy may reimburse you for financial losses if you need to cancel or cut your trip short.
- Travel delays—This coverage may help pay for losses and expenses if parts of your trip are delayed, such as for additional lodging and meals.
- Medical care—Your usual health insurance may not apply while traveling, but this coverage can help ensure you can access essential medical services during your journey.
- Luggage losses—Travel insurance may help you recoup losses involving your luggage, including lost, stolen or damaged items.
- Evacuation—If you require evacuation during your travels, such as due to a natural disaster, your policy may be able to help cover costs.
- Personal liability—This coverage may provide financial assistance if you are at fault for another party’s losses during your trip.
- Assistance services—Your insurance may also include access to 24/7 informational services, including for medical advice and travel guidance.
