How much will travel insurance cost for my trip to Mexico?
The cost of travel insurance varies based on the plan you choose, age of the travelers, cost of the trip, length of trip, and other factors. Be sure to include all non-refundable travel expenses when you get a quote.
How can travel insurance help?
Travel insurance helps cover you in case your trip has to be canceled due to unforeseen events, such as your own illness or injury, the death of a family member, or a natural disaster at your destination – that last one can be especially beneficial for areas like Mexico where the location between two oceans increases the possibility of extreme weather events. Travel medical insurance -- which is available on its own or as part of a comprehensive trip cancellation policy -- can help cover expenses if you become ill or have an accident while you are traveling.
Why should I choose a Trawick International travel insurance plan?
Trawick International offers a variety of travel insurance plans, including Trip Cancellation, Primary Emergency Travel Medical, Adventure Travel Insurance, and more. Most of our travel insurance plans do not exclude claims for COVID-19 medical expenses, and we treat COVID-19 the same as any other sickness.
Do you offer Cancel For Any Reason Travel Insurance Insurance?
The Safe Travels Voyager plan offers optional Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) coverage. The CFAR option provides reimbursement for up to 75% of the prepaid, non-refundable, forfeited payments you paid for your trip if you cancel your trip for any reason not otherwise covered by this policy, up to two days before your trip is to begin. CFAR must be purchased with the initial policy and within 21 days of the initial trip deposit date, and the full, non-refundable trip cost must be insured.
A couple of items to note: CFAR is not available in all states, and not all of our Safe Travels insurance policies include primary medical coverage and trip delay coverage. Please be sure to read up on what your selected policy covers, or contact us to learn more.
