We live in a world where the unpredictable can happen at any time. Your trip can be delayed due to inclement weather. A natural disaster can force you to cancel your trip. The airline may lose your luggage. What can one do in cases such as these and more? Travel protection is a way to help protect your trip against unforeseen events that may affect your vacation. Here are a few ways your future arrangements can be secured by a travel protection plan.

Trip Cancellation

Many reasons may cause a disruption of your plans and force you to cancel your trip. You may have a medical emergency or maybe your child’s school year gets extended. We understand the last thing you want to do is cancel your vacation, but it may be necessary. That’s why having a benefit like trip cancellation can be beneficial. If your situation fits one of the covered reasons listed in your travel protection plan, you may recover up to 100% of your nonrefundable, prepaid expenses.

Accident or Sickness

The last thing on your mind while away is possibly getting into an accident or getting sick. You don’t want to find yourself scrambling for a way to pay for healthcare. Private health insurance coverage for overseas travel may vary by insurance company1. People with original Medicare will generally not be covered outside of the states.1 Why not have protection that definitely extends beyond U.S. borders? A protection plan for travel within the U.S. may be helpful as well if you don’t have adequate health insurance to cover costs while you are away from home. It could be a relief to know you have protection when you need it.

Travel Delay

It’s not hard to imagine being stuck at the airport because your flight is delayed. That could put a damper on your vacation. You could have coverage for reasonable hotel, meal, and transportation costs. You may also recover the prepaid, nonrefundable portion of your trip affected by the delay.

Lost, Damaged, or Stolen Baggage

What if your bags are lost, damaged, or stolen? You could be reimbursed the actual cash value of the contents in your bags up to a certain limit.* You may even get reimbursement to repair or replace articles of your luggage.*

Cancel for Any Reason

Travel Insured’s Worldwide Trip Protector Plus plan includes a Cancel for Any Reason benefit that could really come in handy. If your reason for cancelling isn’t already covered under the plan, this benefit could be an option. Your reason for canceling could be anything: you changed your mind; a black cat crosses your path; or maybe there’s an emergency at home. In order to be eligible, you must cancel 48 hours or more before your scheduled departure date.* Then, you may recover up to 75% of your non-refundable, prepaid expenses.
