Pack with Peace of Mind by Purchasing Travel Insurance

| June 2009

While no one likes to think about what might go wrong on a vacation, planning for it can not only bring peace of mind, but also valuable assistance when needed.

If an illness, accident or sudden change in plans causes a trip to be interrupted or cancelled, there can be two major financial losses – money invested in nonrefundable prepayments and medical expenses that aren’t covered by health insurance.

If you’re wondering if travel insurance is right for you, the U.S. Travel Insurance Association (USTIA) recommends asking yourself the following questions:

•    Can I afford to lose my vacation investment if something goes wrong due to illness, weather or some other unforeseen circumstances?

•    If I have to cut my trip short because of an emergency, can I afford the cost of a return airline trip home?

•    Does my health insurance cover me away from home and in foreign countries if I become ill or am injured while traveling?
