Myths About Travel Protection

travel protection myths
If you haven’t purchased travel protection before, you might have some preconceived ideas about it. Here are some of the most common travel protection myths and the reasons why they’re untrue.

“Travel protection is too expensive.”

Travel protection is actually very affordable, especially relative to your trip cost and the amount of coverage offered. For example, if you had a 10-day trip and a $100 travel protection plan, that would only be $10 per day. You can get a no-obligation quote on our website to see what your plan cost would be.

“I have travel coverage elsewhere.”

This is true for some people, but coverage through other sources is usually more limited. For example, credit card companies typically only insure for things purchased on that card. As for medical coverage abroad, travel protection may offer a wider range of coverage than your personal health insurance.

“The airline has me covered.”

Airlines might get you on the next available flight, but what if the delay is extremely long? There is no guarantee that your hotel and meal costs incurred during the delay will be covered by the airline. Travel protection, on the other hand, could help you with these costs and more!

“Every travel insurance provider and protection plan are the same.”

Not all travel protection plans and companies are alike. Here at Travel Insured, we take pride in our excellent customer service and extensive coverage. We can work with you to find the plan that best fits your needs.

  1. We had travel insurance for our Caribbean cruise out of Tampa in February a couple years ago. The day of departure, the fog rolled in and the ship was unable to get into the port of Tampa, so we were notified that the departure would be delayed 6 hours and to check back later. Later, they announced we would depart the next day. Luckily we were able to secure the last room at a La Quinta hotel by the airport (the hotel we had stayed at the night before was already full for that night). The next day, the fog was still a factor, so they said to please stand by and when the ship was able to head to the port, we would be notified. Later in the afternoon, the cruise was cancelled (had to find another hotel for that night since the La Quinta was full) . We had to pay $200 to change our flight reservation to fly home early. All of these expenses were covered under our travel insurance! (covered under trip delay or trip interruption). We received over $900 in covered expenses from the travel insurance company. Royal Caribbean refunded our cruise money, but they dont reimburse other delay charges.Make sure you keep all receipts from meals, hotels,taxiis, rental cars, unrefundable deposits, etc. We ran into cruise passengers who did not buy travel insurance.
