Traveling can be fun and rejuvenating. It can also be expensive, especially when things don’t go according to plan. A wide range of unexpected events can ruin travel plans and leave you facing expenses you didn’t account for. The right insurance, however, can help protect you. Before booking a trip, find out what your existing insurance covers, check the credit card you’re going to use for travel insurance or assistance, and look into these coverages.
There are a few main types of travel insurance that can usually be purchased as a package with a combination of other coverage options. Choosing travel insurance should be based on what makes sense for your trip and your finances. When taking a large or expensive trip, losing your deposit because of illness is something to consider. Also, your regular medical insurance may not provide enough or any coverage when traveling outside the United States. If you’re taking an international trip, trip insurance can cover you against accidents or illness while you’re abroad. While these examples are common, travel can cover other situations as well. Here are the types of insurance you should consider.
