Travelex Flight Insurance
You've planned a great many details for your upcoming trip. Since you’re a smart traveler, you've also decided flight insurance is probably a good idea. If you know one thing about travelling, it’s that you can always expect the unexpected.
Many people think that simply purchasing a flight means they're covered in the event of something big like an accident or something smaller like lost luggage. While the airline might eventually assist you, nothing comes close to the protection and service you receive from Travelex's flight insurance.
From lost luggage to accidents or catastrophes, we make sure you, your valuables and most importantly, your loved ones are covered – and fast. In fact, we’re most proud of the service our customers receive when they travel with our insurance.
For example, our concierge services can help you with the fun stuff, like when you need to book hotels, flights or events during your trip. But we can also lend a helping hand when you need it most; if you’re in need of translation services, assistance during an emergency or arranging transportation to a medical facility.
With Travelex, you purchase peace of mind – starting at just $39 for our basic package plans. Now that's smart.
How Does Flight Insurance Benefit Me?
You may not know that Travelex flight insurance offers added perks for travelers. In addition to swift and direct compensation – something airlines simply can’t offer – you can also take advantage of all these extras:
More Health and Accident Coverage
If you've ever experienced a health-related mishap while travelling, you understand the relief flight insurance can provide. This is why our customers love the additional medical coverage Travelex offers.
For emergencies or evacuations that traditional health plans might not cover, we're there for you. We also offer protection that extends to your family members when you travel, covering unexpected injuries or illnesses during your trip.
More Protection of Your Valuables and Time
When airlines lose or even delay your luggage, it can be a huge disappointment, quickly putting a damper on your plans. Especially when you're travelling! You simply don't have time to deal with the inconvenience of lost bags. This is where Travelex comes in.
Our extensive protection covers your valuables above and beyond what an airline could offer. We cover loss and even delay of luggage. Plus, we handle it swiftly so you can focus on things that are important to you.
More Options for Plans and Coverage
Are you a frequent flyer who’s known on a first-name basis by everyone at your airport? Perhaps you’re more of a once-a-year-family-trip kind of person? We know some people travel more than others, and have different needs when it comes to coverage. That’s why our flight insurance plans let you decide:
- What you want to cover.
- How much you want to cover it for.
- What you want to pay for coverage.

Top 5 Flight Insurace FAQs
What is flight insurance?
Flight insurance is an insurance plan that covers you specifically for flight catastrophes, trip-related accidents, death, dismemberment, injuries or illnesses. It also covers lost or delayed luggage.
Why do I need it?
- In case of an accident, your medical plan might not cover you as extensively as additional flight insurance can while travelling.
- It covers your lost or delayed luggage and offers reimbursement for items you have to replace.
What are the risks of not having it?
Without flight insurance, you pay for any lost luggage or time due to cancellations or delays. The same goes for any injury that occurs during your trip that standard insurance doesn’t cover. And if a catastrophic event results in death on your trip, your loved ones might not receive any reimbursement to help deal with the loss.
When can I or should I purchase the flight insurance?
You can purchase the insurance up to two years before the trip’s departure date. Annual coverage lasts for 365 days. We offer many options to purchase plans, whether it be ahead of time online/on the phone, or last-minute at our airport kiosks located across the United States.
How does it work?
This coverage begins when you board the plane. If bags are lost or stolen, or you're in an accident while on the trip and need medical coverage, Travelex will reimburse you for financial losses. Coverage works anywhere in the world, and is only limited by losses due to war.
