Important Travel Insurance Information

Here are some of our most frequently asked questions from travelers like you.

Who Needs Travel Insurance?

Travelers should consider buying insurance if they want to protect themselves from a financial loss before or during their trip, especially if they have planned an expensive trip, or have a specific concern that would impact their vacation. Most policies include benefits that can cover major concerns, including trip cancellations, medical emergencies, and travel delays, among others.

What Does Travel Insurance Cover?

Comprehensive travel insurance is designed to cover common disruptions that may impact a trip. Most policies will provide coverage for trip cancellations, medical emergencies, travel delays, missed connections, and lost luggage. Travelers that experience financial loss as a result of a covered disruption may be eligible for reimbursement through their insurance policy.

How Much Does a Policy Usually Cost?

The cost of a policy depends on four primary factors: trip cost, traveler age, trip length, and coverage amounts. In general, a comprehensive policy with Trip Cancellation typically costs between 5% and 10% of the total trip cost. However, a policy without an insured trip cost will be significantly less expensive.

When is the Best Time to Buy a Policy?

The best time to buy depends on the coverage a traveler needs. Trip Cancellation policies can be purchased up until the day before they leave. However, only unforeseen events can be covered, so we recommend travelers who want cancellation benefits buy as soon as possible. Travelers who primarily want travel health insurance during their trip can buy anytime up until the day before they leave.

How Does Travel Insurance Work?

Trip insurance is designed to protect travelers in case something goes wrong that impacts their trip. This includes financial reimbursement if their trip is canceled before they depart, as well as medical benefits, travel delay coverage, and other benefits that can cover them while they are traveling.

Where Can I Buy Travel Insurance?

Travelers can purchase a policy directly from providers, through a comparison site like Squaremouth, or directly through a travel supplier when booking. To find the best policy, travelers should always compare premiums, coverage amounts, and reviews to find the travel insurance coverage they need at the best price.
