Don’t let the additional cost of travel insurance discourage you from the making the investment, the peace of mind alone that it grants is more than worth the monetary investment. The trip you’ve been dreaming about for years shouldn’t have to be affected by circumstances out of your control.
Due to global events, travelers have ramped up their travel insurance purchases by more than 15% since 2012. If you’re planning on purchasing a package for a future trip, there are a couple of steps you should take prior to buying.
Begin by familiarizing yourself with the types of coverage available. These include but are not limited to medical, cancellation, and flight insurance. Of these insurances, cancellation is the most common and is included in just about every comprehensive policy. This insurance will cover circumstances such as you or your travel partner getting sick, a legal obligation, and other factors.
When it comes to medial insurance, you’ll first need to figure out whether you need to purchase a plan designed to cover pre-existing medical conditions. These plans typically cover the cost of an ambulance, hospital services and provide around the clock emergency assistance.
Flight insurance is meant exclusively for any difficulties that may arise regarding your flight. Typically these policies are purchased for international trips due to the higher fare costs. Flight insurance can help with saving on the cost of delay fees or a cancellation due to bad weather or a mechanical issue with the aircraft.
When traveling abroad you don’t want any surprises so it’s imperative that you read your policy in its entirety so you know what’s included, any restrictions, or what may not be covered. When news of the Zika virus began to proliferate, many Americans were unaware that their standard travel insurance policies did not cover trip cancellation due to a heightened outbreak risk.
