What makes travel insurance so important?

If You Cancel Your Trip or Your Trip Cancels On You

The biggest thing and most used reason for travel insurance being so important is if you’re needing to cancel your vacation. Look, stuff happens. Sometimes you’re all ready in February to go to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for a family trip in July, but any number of qualifying events can pop up and force you to be unable to go on the vacation. Having insurance allows you to cancel that trip and not lose out on your investment.

And sometimes the weather or other things out of your control are reasons for cancelation. Try planning a trip to the southeast during hurricane season and you’ll know that you’re constantly on alert. If you’ve got travel insurance, your investment is safe even if Mother Nature isn’t.

If You Need Medical Help

Many plans also have medical coverage for any emergency issue that might come up while traveling. This isn’t quite as big of a deal when you’re traveling domestically, but on international trips, many countries actually require you to have insurance. A good travel insurance plan will at least help to take care of medical costs, which can be a huge burden when you’re traveling that you simply don’t have to think about.

If You Lose Something

Picture this: you’ve arrived at the airport in whatever tropical location you’re spending your next few days and you’re waiting for your luggage…but it never comes. Having insurance will help you to both recover your bags and get reimbursement for all the replacement items you might need to buy. And worse, what if you lose your passport? With lost passport coverage, having insurance will help you replace and pay for your new one so you can get home easily.
