Traveling usually brings about happy and exciting experiences: you can explore foreign places, try local cuisines, and make memories that will last a lifetime. However, it's important to be prepared for moments outside of your control.
Though severe injuries and mishaps are rare, the consequences can be costly. Thankfully, with Travelex’s accidental death and dismemberment coverage, you can receive emergency financial support in the event you - or a traveling companion - suffer a grave accident.
What is accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) coverage?
AD&D coverage can provide you with financial support in the event there is loss of life, limbs, or sight on your trip. If something should happen while you’re traveling, the AD&D coverage is paid to your chosen beneficiary which can be used for funeral costs or medical expenses that are a direct result of the accident.
When would I need AD&D coverage?
While traveling, there are many different scenarios where you might need AD&D coverage. This can include your flights, the ride to your hotel, renting a car to drive yourself, and any activities on your trip.
AD&D coverage is also helpful if you're going to be participating in any extreme activities or sports while on vacation. When participating in adventurous activities such as skiing, snowboarding, biking, and more, there's always a higher risk of injury. And while many people don’t want to think about such serious incidents, it's crucial to be prepared.
If you do plan on participating in extreme sports, or if you would like higher benefit levels on your travel insurance policy’s existing benefits, the Adventure Sports Coverage and Additional Medical Coverage upgrades on Travel Select can provide the extra financial protection you require.
