Why should I buy a travel protection plan?

One thing that's certain is the unpredictability of travel for you or even a non-traveling family member. Travel can have inherent risks. From sickness to hurricane evacuations, or injury while traveling, our travel insurance protects you - and your trip investment - even before you leave.

Cancellation/Interruption: Travel insurance can provide peace of mind and protect you from certain financial losses that can occur while traveling. For example, if you have to cancel your entire trip for a covered reason, or interrupt your trip and cancel portions of it due to a covered reason, trip cancellation/interruption benefits can reimburse you for your prepaid, nonrefundable trip costs (up to the limits on your plan's schedule of benefits).

Trip Delay: Travel insurance also can reimburse you for losses caused by a covered travel delay.

Medical Expenses: Travel insurance also can reimburse or even pay directly for eligible medical expenses in the case of a covered medical or dental emergency.

Baggage & Personal Effects: If your baggage and personal effects are lost, stolen, or damaged during covered trip, plan benefits can reimburse you for the loss. Reimburse you for losses caused by a covered baggage delay.

Emergency Evacuation & Repatriation: Travel insurance can provide coverage for Emergency Evacuation expenses, and even assistance with arranging the evacuation, if an Accidental Injury or Sickness commencing during the course of the Trip results in Your necessary Emergency Evacuation.

Other Benefits: Travel insurance can provide reimbursement for missed connection fees, Airline Ticket Exchange Fee, Repatriation of Remains, Accidental Death & Dismemberment, protect you from paying for rental car damage or loss, and much more. 

The travel retailer/planner who is organizing your experience may require you to purchase and maintain a qualified travel insurance policy for the duration of your trip.

Americans are beginning to travel abroad again for leisure, business, study abroad and missionary work.
