One of the busiest travel times of the year is the holiday season. Often we pack up the car or hop on a plane to visit out of state loved ones and family. It’s both exciting and stressful. If you’ve seen “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” you know that holiday travel can sometimes take a turn. But by protecting your travel plans this holiday season, you may be able to alleviate some of the stress you feel when venturing out onto those crowded travel routes. Check out a few ways travel protection might help you this holiday season.
Possibility for Cancellation
During the holiday season there are many factors that may cause you to cancel your trip. Weather trends may not be on your side or you might even have a medical emergency. Even though canceling a trip is never ideal, and especially not during the holiday season, sometimes it becomes necessary. Having travel protection that includes a benefit such as trip cancellation can be helpful if you end up in this position. You may eligible to recover some of your nonrefundable, prepaid expenses if your reason for cancellation fits one of the covered reasons listed in your protection plan.
One thing we can almost count on, during the holiday season is wintery mixes in precipitation and temperature. But we never know when these bouts of weather will hit. If you find yourself grounded by weather you may be able to receive coverage for reasonable hotel, meal, and transportation costs. You may also be eligible to recover your prepaid, nonrefundable portion of the trip affected by the delay.
No one wants to get sick during their travels, and especially not when they’re trying to partake in holiday family time and activities. The last thing you want to do is to stress over finding a way to pay for healthcare. This is an important consideration for international travel, but it is also important for domestic travel as well; especially if you don’t have adequate health insurance to cover costs while you are away from your home. Having travel protection in your back pocket might help ease some concerns you may have.
Lost, Damaged, or Stolen Baggage
One thing that we hope to avoid when traveling is lost, damaged, or stolen baggage. Especially if we are carrying important gifts. By having travel protection, you could be reimbursed for the cash value of the contents in your bags up to a certain limit.* Additionally, there may be an opportunity for reimbursement on repairs or replacements for articles of your luggage.*
Consider travel protection each time you go away to help you should the unexpected occur. Give yourself a gift this holiday season by completing your travel plans with a protection plan.
