Top Reasons to Buy Travel Insurance

Not sure whether you need travel insurance coverage? Here are 7 reasons to consider protecting your upcoming trip:

  1. You fall — or fall ill — during your trip.

You’re probably not imagining what would happen if you experienced an injury or medical emergency while traveling, but accidents can happen, and travel insurance helps ensure that you’re protected wherever you are in the world. Travel insurance provides primary emergency medical, dental, and medical evacuation benefits, helping ensure that you receive quality care in any country. You may also be eligible for a pre-existing medical condition exclusion waiver.

Even if you have health insurance through your employer or another health care plan, be sure to check whether it covers medical expenses incurred while traveling outside the country.

2. Your physician declares you unfit for travel.

If you or a travel companion are diagnosed by a physician and declared to be unfit for travel, then you may be eligible for trip cancellation and trip interruption benefits. Other coverages may also apply if you test positive for COVID-19 during your trip.

3. Your destination city is experiencing terrorist activity.

If a terrorist act happens in a city listed on your itinerary within 30 days of your scheduled arrival, trip cancellation and trip interruption coverage may apply. These benefits allow you to cancel or interrupt your trip due to a terrorist incident and to receive reimbursement for unused, nonrefundable trip expenses.

4. Inclement weather conditions delayed your flight.

If your trip is delayed five hours or more due to inclement weather, trip delay coverage allows you to be reimbursed for additional accommodations and meals. Trip delay protection can also cover you for a lost or stolen passport, or a traffic accident on the way to the airport or a destination on your itinerary.

5. Your bags are delayed or, worse, lost.

If your bag is lost, stolen, or damaged — or, if your bag is delayed 12 hours or longer — you can receive reimbursement for personal items and expenses.

6. You’re called for jury or military duty.

If you’re called to serve jury or military duty during the period of your trip, trip cancellation coverage allows you to cancel your trip and receive reimbursement for nonrefundable trip expenses.

7. You lose your passport.

Losing your passport can be stressful, and determining who to call or where to go can be challenging in another country.
