With the U.S. dollar and seasonal temperatures rising in Europe, now is the time for American travelers to enjoy a summer vacation across the pond. Recent data indicates the length of stay for economy class trips is up 6% year-over-year for August*. Yet, there is no guarantee travel plans won’t go awry. Travel insurance comparison website, TravelInsurance.com, provides consumers with the easiest way to compare and buy coverage while helping to simplify the seemingly complicated world of travel insurance.
Travel insurance can offer peace of mind by protecting non-refundable trip costs. For example, with hurricane season upon us, once a storm is “named” it is too late to purchase travel insurance to protect against the storm’s travel disruptions. However, if travel insurance is purchased prior to the named storm, then consumers can expect coverage.
Policies can cover a variety of issues that might prevent travelers from embarking on their trip or cause them to end it prematurely. For example:
- Trip Cancellation insurance: Covers pre-payments for travel arrangements for covered reasons such as sickness or injuries, extreme weather, terrorism and a host of other issues which could force a trip to be called off or interrupted. Coverage varies by policy.
- Medical Travel insurance: Limits the financial burden for those who fall ill or are injured while traveling.
- Baggage insurance: Provides reimbursement for items in lost, damaged or stolen luggage – and even for the luggage itself.
- Medical Evacuation insurance: Covers costs associated with getting you to a qualified hospital in a medical emergency if the local facilities are inadequate.
- Adventure Sports insurance: An optional upgrade which can cover high-risk activities such as skydiving, snowboarding, and other extreme sports, which would otherwise be excluded.
