You certainly want to consider purchasing travel insurance if you are one of the many planning a trip to Beijing for the summer Olympics! You will definitely want to ensure you have medical coverage while in China and there is a good possibility that your current health insurance will not cover you. Make sure you check your existing policy carefully. Also, while many trips occur without incidents, you can prevent potential financial loss by preparing for the possibility of travel delays, trip cancellation/interruption or lost baggage. A comprehensive travel plan will provide you cover for these events and more.
