Millennials are traveling more and more often, but how many actually invest in travel protection? Most young people couldn’t afford to dig into their savings for unexpected circumstances. So if you think of travel protection as a thing that older travelers need, know that there is value for travelers of all ages! Check out our top reasons why young travelers should purchase a plan.
It can help protect your personal belongings.
Nowadays there are so many valuable personal belongings that young people travel with. Think about your phone, tablet, laptop, or camera. If these items were to get lost or stolen, you’d probably be pretty upset. Travel protection can help you out by reimbursing you for the value of that item.
The cost is budget-friendly.
Young people are already trying to save money by spending smaller amounts on trips. If something unexpected happened, it could ruin your planned budget. Consider what you would do if you needed to see a doctor abroad for something like food poisoning. The small price of travel protection can help you feel more at ease financially in unexpected medical situations.
Travel delays are unpredictable.
Short trips are common among young people. Instead of taking week-long trips, you’re probably taking a 3 or 4 day trip. Now imagine having a flight delay that forced you to miss a day of activities on a short 3-day trip? It would be frustrating, but travel protection could at least help you get your lost expenses back. Additionally, if your delay meets a certain length you could get necessary expenses reimbursed, like meals or a hotel.
You can get trip cancellation protection.
Covered reasons for cancellation include things like medical issues or a death in the family. As a young person, you may not think you’ll need to cancel your trip for these reasons. But consider other reasons you may need to cancel your trip after it’s booked, like graduations, weddings, births, and even break ups! These aren’t covered reasons for cancellation, but if you get a plan with Cancel for Any Reason*, you can cancel your trip for any life event that isn’t already covered!
If you’re traveling on a budget, a travel protection plan can really help you out. If you were to run into any unexpected events, like lost baggage or a flight delay, you may not have additional money saved away for emergencies. With a travel protection plan, you can get reimbursed for those unplanned covered costs. Get a quote today at www.travelinsured.com.
