Put Vacationer’s Minds at Ease with Travel Insurance

Last Updated:

According to an article in the Chicago Tribune, when planning a vacation, consumers often focus on the fun aspects of the itinerary: Where do you go, and what do you do when you get there?

But what if things don’t go as planned? What if your travel provider goes out of business, a health epidemic breaks out in your destination country or you get sick or injured before you leave home?

That’s where travel insurance can help. It’s a guarantee against many of the things that could go wrong on a vacation, from lost luggage to job loss to a major medical emergency.

Many travel insurance plans offer similar coverage, however compare and contrast them carefully.  Make certain that the plan selected has the desired amounts of emergency medical & dental as well as medical evacuation & repatriation.  This will normally lead to several plans in a similar price range.  It then becomes easier to distinguish which plan offers better benefits of coverage.  Always refer to the certificate of insurance for details.
