Traveling with Insurance

Jun 5, 2008
If you travel you should be covered with some form of travel insurance. Your travel insurance should be factored into the cost of your journey along with buying your travel tickets, booking your accommodation and allowing for food. You may be surprised at the vast amount and range of cover available for today's traveler.

As a safety net travel insurance gives you peace of mind. One never knows when one sets out on any journey what or how circumstances may suddenly change. If they do wouldn't you rather be covered. More importantly can you afford not to be covered should you be unable to take your trip when planned

Health is often the biggest insurance issue for many travelers. Check with your normal health insurer, you may be surprised to find they have you covered. Many offer excellent travel insurance rates for their customers. Some health insurers will have you covered for every eventuality but only in your country of residence. If you need emergency medical attention abroad this can be extremely expensive, make sure you are well covered here.

Check your airline clauses before you choose your insurance. Many airlines will not cover events due to suspect activities. Make sure you have cover for flight cancellation at all times.

What would happen if the day before you intend to travel a family crisis comes up or you fall ill. There is the worst snowstorm in twenty years or even a hurricane? Are you covered if you need to reschedule your whole trip? Think about insurance before your date of departure. You can get cover for the period up to your departure date. Remember not all accidents happen while you are on holiday, they sometimes happen before you leave home. Whatever may happen if you have insurance you will be covered.

You have arrived but your luggage has not, what to do? The airline will try to find and deliver your luggage to you but this sometimes does not happen. Sometimes you get the lost luggage only to find some items missing. Or it has been damaged in transit. Insurance will cover all of this so even if you arrive but not your bags, you can replace what is missing and get on with your holiday.

To decide on a specific travel insurance company you will need to do your research. Different companies offer different plans for different vacations. For example, the insurance you get for taking the family by car to Disneyland and staying in a hotel in the city. Will be different to the cover you would need to fly to a remote part of Africa and camp in a game park. Some companies will offer extended travel cover for many months. Or you may only need cover for two or three weeks. Obviously you will need to choose the cover that suits you particular travel arrangements.

List what you personally are looking for in your insurance cover then go out and find it. Travel insurance is big business and highly competitive. This gives you the consumer the advantage. There is no reason to spoil a good holiday by not being insured. Your insurance cover should give you peace of mind and thats the best way to travel.
