FAQs about finding the travel insurance for Bahamas vacations
Are there any travel alerts I should be aware of before my trip to the Bahamas?
Before visiting the Bahamas, you may want to stay in touch with the latest updates from the U.S. Department of State's Travel Advisories website to check if there are any travel warnings for the area.
If there is a travel advisory that could affect your coverage with Travelex, it may be listed on Travelex’s website.
If you are a Travelex policyholder, you can get the most out of your plan and receive live security notifications during your Bahamas vacation if you download the Travelex Travel On app.
Do I need travel insurance coverage if I am going on an all-inclusive resort vacation in The Bahamas?
Even if you plan to relax for your entire all-inclusive Caribbean vacation, it's still smart to think about getting travel insurance. Beyond merely insuring unforeseen health issues or accidents during your journey, travel insurance can also provide coverage for unpredicted events like travel interruptions and trip delays for covered reasons.
I’m looking for travel insurance for Bahamas cruises. Do I need it if my ship departs from the U.S.?
You may have made a big investment in your cruise, and you never know when you could be one named storm or unforeseen illness away from a canceled trip.
If your plans are derailed because of an unanticipated event, travel insurance coverage for Bahamas cruises may help to reimburse you for unforeseen expenses or prevent you from losing your whole cruise investment. A Travelex protection plan can offer you coverage whether your ship departs from the United States or the Bahamas, because you never know when you’ll need it.
Can I get coverage for driving a rental car in the Bahamas?
Are you picturing yourself feeling the wind in your hair while you drive past the white-sand beaches of the Bahamas? If you think you’ll rent a car at the islands, you may want to look into Travelex’s Car Rental Collision Coverage, which is available on both the Travel Select and Travel Basic plans as an optional upgrade. The upgrade can provide supplemental coverage if there is damage to the rental car because of covered events like collision and flood.
Can I get coverage for adventure activities on my Bahamas vacation?
Have you dreamt about scuba diving Dean’s Blue Hole in the Bahamas or hiking at the Bahamas National Trust Nature Centre in Freeport? Check to see if the travel insurance plan you’re investing in for the Bahamas offers coverage for the adventure activities you may want to try.
But, if you have the Travel Select plan and think you’ll scuba dive deeper than 60 feet, go zip lining, or try another activity that is not incorporated in the base plans, it’s a smart idea to consider adding the Adventure Sports upgrade.
To learn more about the Adventure Sports upgrade, you can reach out to the Travelex customer solutions team before getting travel insurance for the Bahamas.
Can I get coverage if I think I may have to cancel my trip to the Bahamas?
Having the freedom to know you’re able to cancel your trip for any reason can feel like a huge relief – even before something unexpected happens.
You never know what could come up before your trip starts, so you may be wondering what you could add to your travel insurance policy for the Bahamas to help protect your vacation investment.
Travelex’s Travel Select plan is eligible for the optional Cancel for Any Reason upgrade, which can refund you up to 75% ($7,500 maximum) of your insured trip payments when you have to cancel your trip up to 48 hours before departing. You can use the Cancel For Any Reason upgrade for any cancellation reason at all.
Please note: You may use the Cancel for Any Reason upgrade if your trip lasts 30 days or less, you purchase your policy and the upgrade simultaneously within 15 days of paying your first trip cost payment, and you insure the entire sum of the pre-paid non-refundable vacation payments (up to $10,000) when you buy your policy.
I am visiting multiple countries while abroad. Can I get travel insurance coverage for my entire trip?
Thinking about visiting the nearby Florida Keys or Turks and Caicos during your Bahamas vacation? You can get coverage for your whole trip even if you’re stopping in different countries, as long as the country you’re in is not a sanctioned destination that Travelex does not insure.
When getting travel insurance for multiple countries, you should designate your policy destination as the country you will be in for most of the trip. For example, if you plan on staying in the Florida Keys for two nights and the Bahamas for three nights, you should list the Bahamas as your destination for travel insurance purposes.
Why should I get travel insurance for Bahamas vacations if I have insurance with my credit card?
You may be able to get travel insurance through your credit card, but it likely won’t be backed by a team of travel experts or a specialized company that provides higher benefit limits.
You may also have to jump through hoops to receive travel insurance coverage through a credit card company, as some have requirements for eligibility in order for coverage to kick-in.
A travel insurance company like Travelex can offer broader coverage, including potentially insuring pre-existing medical conditions, so you can have a smoother journey in the Bahamas.
