Should I purchase travel insurance?

Should I purchase travel insurance?

Despite our best efforts to avoid them, unexpected incidents can your vacation adventures upside down. Accidents, illnesses, injuries, cancelled flights, lost luggage and bad weather can derail even the most carefully laid travel plan.

Whether it’s a weekend trip, a golf getaway to Erehwon Retreat or a tour abroad that’s taken years to save for, travel is a part of your life.

The decision to purchase travel insurance really comes down to whether the financial benefit outweighs the cost of the policy premium. For example, if you had to cancel your trip, could you afford to lose the money you paid for the entire trip? 

Keep in mind, trip cancellation is pre-departure coverage if you cancel your vacation for a covered reason such as:  injury or illness, a natural disaster, schedule conflicts such as jury duty or court summons, traffic accident en route, work conflicts, military deployment to help with disaster relief. Travel insurance with not reimburse you because the weather reports suggest rain for the week of your visit or you’ve had a change of heart about taking a vacation that week.

For our guests from overseas, we remind you that trip interruption coverage is different than trip cancellation insurance.
