Best Travel Insurance

If you have an upcoming trip planned, you owe it to yourself to look into travel insurance. It's an unfortunate reality that things happen when we least expect them. We've found that experts generally recommend travel insurance, and the savviest of travelers look at it as a wise choice.

If you think that your credit card company will protect you, think again. Credit card companies may cover certain aspects of airline costs if your tickets go missing or become worthless, but they will not help you if your flight is delayed and your cruise is missed. Nor will they help if you suffer an injury or illness while traveling.

Standard insurance policies often fail when it comes to travel. For example, you may already have a medical insurance policy. However, most of these plans don't have a list of doctors to assist you in European countries, for example, or off the Coast of Barbados. You may have to pay 100% out of pocket expenses just to get assistance. In these cases, travel insurance with medical coverage can save you thousands of dollars in the event that you need to be treated by adequate medical staff.

Before you purchase travel insurance, you want to make sure that you select the best company to meet your needs. Important aspects of travel insurance providers include:

  • Coverage.  What specifically will the travel insurance cover during your trip?
  • Reimbursement.  When and how fast will the travel insurance company step in to pay for what you need?
  • Cost.  Does the travel insurance company charge a reasonable fee for the coverage they offer?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Travel Insurance providers available today. We hope this information helps you find the right travel insurance that protects you on your next trip!

When Should You Buy Travel Insurance?

If you’re making plans for your vacation or your family’s vacation, you need to determine whether you want to purchase travel insurance. Travel insurance may be another expense, but it can be well worth it so that you’re covered in case of an emergency or problem.

Not many years ago, few people purchased travel insurance. However, that's changing fast. In fact, according to the U.S. Travel Insurance Association, in the last 10 years the percentage of American travelers purchasing travel insurance increased from 10 to 30 percent. Travelers purchase insurance for a few reasons including protection against unexpected events, loss of the financial investment in the trip, and peace of mind.

Like many things, travel insurance can cover a wide variety of problems and will reimburse your costs for many situations. But you should know what type of insurance you need for your specific situation.

Here are a couple of tips on when you should buy travel insurance.

  • You should consider buying travel insurance anytime the cost of the trip is more than the cost of the insurance. For example, if you’re purchasing a $75 nonrefundable airline ticket, you probably don’t want to invest in travel insurance that protects you from trip cancellation or interruption. However, if you’ve purchased a cruise vacation or all-inclusive resort stay for $3,000 - $10,000, you may want to protect that investment by purchasing travel insurance just in case you have to cancel due to illness, family emergencies, or other reasons. Travel insurance packages can also protect you in case the cruise line or resort experiences financial problems, such as going out of business between the time you pay for the trip and the time you get there. Be certain not to purchase this insurance from the cruise line or resort, as your coverage will be worthless if they go out of business.
  • You should purchase travel insurance whenever you travel outside the U.S. Whether you’re traveling by cruise ship or by airplane, your health insurance may or may not cover any medical expenses you incur outside of the United States. This includes travelling on "foreign-flagged" cruise ships. If you’re travelling in U.S. waters on a foreign-flagged cruise ship, your medical insurance may not cover you if you become sick or injured. Travel insurance companies that offer medical coverage can also help facilitate any medical payments needed while in a foreign country, act as your advocate, and help cover costs associated with transporting you back home for medical reasons.

There are a variety of reasons to purchase travel insurance and a variety of options to cover you and your vacation. Be sure to look for a travel insurance policy from a dependable company so that your vacation investment is protected, and you can relax and enjoy your trip!
