One of the greatest things that a student can do is travel. This type of travel can be a short vacation with a group of peers, a volunteer program, or a study abroad program. In each case, young adults have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a culture other than their own. This is invaluable for students and it expands their ways of learning by being able to experience cultures and traditions around the world. But, with the exciting adventures that lie ahead, it is also important to recognize the risks that can arise from this expedition.
There are several risks that could come along with students traveling. Whatever the risk, it is important to purchase travel insurance to be proactive in case something does happen to go wrong. Here is a list of 5 reasons you or your student shouldn’t overlook travel coverage.
Plane tickets? Check!
Hotel reservations? Check!
Pre-paid excursions? Check!
Travel protection? Check! Check!
Pre-existing conditions? Huh??
Before we travel, no matter the length or destination of our trip, we plan. In fact, we try to anticipate all the things that may happen or may go wrong, so that we are as prepared as possible. In a lot of cases making that extra copy of your itinerary or bringing your more comfortable hiking sneakers rather than the new ones works out in our favor. But some things are still beyond our control. In the wake of both Thomas Cook and Wow Air filing for bankruptcy, air travelers need to be prepared for anything. We want to make sure, no matter where you plan to travel this year, your travel investments are protected.
Hurricane season 2019 is officially here. With summer vacations upon us, one of the most important steps to staying safe is by purchasing a travel protection plan. While travel protection solely to guard against the disruptions caused by a hurricane is not available from Travel Insured, purchasing a plan with coverage that can help protect against many of the inconveniences that hurricanes can cause can be helpful.
This week, Travel Insured has launched a brand new Customer Help Center on the Travel Insured website! This feature was designed to serve as an all-in-one knowledge base and community designed for customers to help themselves find answers to questions, as quickly as possible.
Not every travel protection plan is created equal. At first glance, it’s everyone’s inclination to choose the 25-dollar plan over the 125-dollar plan. Big savings initially, however, do not necessarily equate to big savings in the long term! If you’re seeking extensive coverage for your next trip, it’s important to stop getting stuck on the initial price tag and start assessing plans based on your travel coverage needs.
Truth being, it’s tough to anticipate what types of travel misfortunes you will encounter on your trip. Choosing an extensive travel protection plan from Travel Insured, however, is one way to safeguard you and your travel investment. Our Worldwide Trip Protector is an extensive coverage option while our Worldwide Trip Protector Plus is among our most extensive coverage options. Here are a few of the benefits of choosing one of these plans:
2019 is upon us and that means a whole new year of travel trends. 2019 also means a whole new set of travel predictions, so let’s get forecasting:
There are tons of ultra-popular locations in the US to travel. According to TripAdvisor, New York City, Maui, Las Vegas, Oahu, and Orlando are America’s most vacationed destinations in 2018.
But there’s also countless other United States’ travel spots that are worth checking out – and some may surprise you!
Health, auto, homeowner, life – the list of essential insurance goes on and on. You probably don’t even think twice about purchasing one of these plans, since they protect against everyday disasters.
Travel insurance, on the other hand, may be viewed as optional. Why? We all want to believe that once you turn vacation-mode on, setbacks and disasters disappear; yet this mentality is simply (and unfortunately) untrue!
Just because your email is set to autoreply and you’re wearing your favorite pink palm tree polo doesn’t mean you’re in the clear.
While we all hopefully will never have to use travel insurance for life-threatening circumstances like transportation and treatment at a US-approved hospital, there’s many more reasons to pick a travel protection plan before your next journey.
