It’s time to start making travel plans. Whether you’re heading out for a grand family adventure or a high school or college student traveling abroad this summer, make sure you protect your travel plans with the appropriate travel insurance coverage.

Is Travel Insurance Really Necessary?

The world is a large place and accidents and injuries never seem to happen at convenient times. These emergencies are why travel insurance is so important. It’s about so much more than protecting your financial interests should cancellations occur.

Think about it. Do hospitals and medical facilities in foreign countries accept your medical insurance coverage? Are you protected when traveling out of the country at all?

What about the costs involved in medical evacuations if you need more advanced treatments – or long-term care?

What if a typhoon or other natural disaster occurs and evacuations become necessary? Who helps with those expenses? Or arranges for the recovery of deposits and other expenses?

Just imagine all the tickets you’ve purchased for entertainment and transportation while traveling. Of all the non-refundable reservations you’ve made – in good faith. One natural disaster could stop your travel plans in a heartbeat and all that money would be lost or forfeit without travel insurance to protect you.

Travel insurance provides invaluable protection in all these scenarios and more. It even offers protection if your trip must be cancelled because a member of your family or group becomes ill and helps you get your wallet and passport replaced if stolen.  The right travel insurance protection will even provide for emergency cash if this should occur.
