Why do I need travel insurance?

Whether you plan to travel across the ocean or only across state lines, there’s always a chance your trip might not go according to plan. If you encounter a flight cancellation, baggage delay, medical emergency or more during your trip, travel insurance can help. Travel insurance can offer reimbursement for certain incurred travel costs, and provide 24/7 travel assistance and emergency medical help if needed.

In short, travel insurance provides you, and your finances, a supportive safety net while you explore the amazing world around you.
