Should I Use Travel Insurance?
There are few things as unsettling and nerve racking as hiccups in travel plans, cancellations, delays, and health issues in foreign countries.
Forget about the initial inconvenience of these situations and consider the full and total impact that they can have on your vacation. If something does happen, it’s important to have travel insurance. It’s one of those things that you hope you never have to have come in handy, but thank your lucky stars for if you need it.
Don’t let this be you.
A prime example of one of these situations happened to a young man I met while traveling to Slovenia. He told me of his nightmare experience. While in Croatia, he had one of his arms swell up to two to three times it’s normal size — without knowing what had caused this. He was taken to a hospital in Croatia and treated by a doctor and staff that spoke no English. Luckily, he knew exactly what had caused the massive swelling — a small bug bite. Thankfully, he was covered by his travel insurance. Had he not been covered he would have been hesitant to seek medical attention. Having to consider paying these expenses out of pocket is not something you want to have to think about. Fortunately, he was able to be treated and even continue on his planned travels.
What Does Travel Insurance Cover?
Travel insurance can cover a plethora of events. Lost luggage, cancelled flights, health concerns abroad, hospitalization and a range of other unexpected circumstances can be covered. Like any insurance policy, different companies offer different coverage — luckily, this is where a travel agent comes in handy. Agents have the experience of working with many companies and policies and therefore know what will be a good fit for the type of trip you are taking.
Other Insurance at home.
While you may be fully covered for nearly everything in your home country, this does not cover you abroad. This does not cover you abroad. Some credit card companies offer some sort of travel insurance, but most likely it is very limited. To ensure you will be covered while traveling, we can ensure you have travel insurance.
Again, this is something that you hope you will never have to use.
Even a healthy, seasoned traveler can fall victim to foreign parasites, stolen luggage, and unexpected partial trip cancellations. Being prepared for the unexpected will keep your vacation worry free and be a lot less stressful should something arise.
