Help: I Don’t Need All of This Coverage

Last Updated:

When getting a travel insurance quote, many travelers only want one or two coverage benefits.  However, most travel insurance plans package the benefits together and do not permit much a-la-carte selection.  There are some plans that offer trip cancellation with no trip interruption, emergency medical & dental or medical evacuation & repatriation.  In many cases, those plans will be in the same price range as the plans that do offer such coverage.  Try to find plans that offer less emergency medical & dental or less medical evacuation & repatriation.  These two categories typically cause the largest fluctuation in the cost of travel insurance premiums.  It is wise to compare travel insurance plans side by side to find the best value.  Always refer to the certificate of insurance for details.
