Often times travel insurance is overlooked when planning a trip, but smart travelers know that having it can make the difference between an enjoyable trip and a potential disaster. Whether you experience the sudden loss of a loved one, a change in business plans, illness, or a severe weather disruption, having travel insurance provides peace of mind.
Before purchasing travel insurance, it’s best to look into a few things such as what type of coverage you may need, your trip cost and length, who might be traveling with you, and the comparison between various plans to decide the best fit for you, including your budget. Reading the fine print is very important as well — knowing what you might receive as compensation depending on the situation will be important if you need to activate your insurance.
When comparing travel insurance plans, consider the following:
Does the company allow you to extend your insurance mid-trip? Is there medical coverage, including for COVID? What coverage do you have in case you have to stay abroad longer than expected? What is required if you want to cancel the insurance?
According to Forbes, the top 10 best travel insurance companies to consider, include:
- HTH Worldwide
- John Hancock Insurance Agency
- Seven Corners
- Trawick International
- USI Affinity Travel Insurance Services
- AIG Travel
- April International
- AXA Assistance USA
- Generali Global Assistance
Travel scenarios are often dependent on factors that you cannot control – life happens. And so, with the addition of travel insurance, those “what if” situations can be a lot less stressful, allowing you the chance to relax and enjoy your trip, or take care of your business without any additional worry.
