Travel insurance is a plan you purchase that protects you from certain financial risks and losses that can occur while traveling. These losses can be minor, like a delayed suitcase, or significant, like last-minute trip cancellation or a medical emergency overseas.

In addition to financial protection, the other huge benefit of travel insurance is access to assistance services, wherever you are in the world. Travel and medical experts can arrange medical treatment in an emergency, monitor your care, serve as interpreters, help you replace lost passports and so much more. Sometimes, they even save travelers’ lives.

A few things you should know about travel insurance:

    • Benefits vary by plan. It’s important to choose a plan that fits your needs, your budget and your travel plans.
    • Travel insurance can’t cover every possible situation. Often called named perils travel insurance, which means it covers only the specific situations, events, and losses included in your plan documents, and only under the conditions we describe.
    • Travel insurance is designed to cover unforeseeable events— not things you could easily see coming, or things within your control. If, for example, you wait to buy insurance for your beach trip until after named hurricane is hurtling toward your destination, your losses wouldn’t be covered.

We recommend the following two companies, which offer excellent coverage in particular for:

Medical expenses
Theft or damage to baggage
Relief and return
Legal assistance
Trip cancellation before departure
Rebooking flights due to travel delays
