Frequently Asked Questions

Can Travel America be used for international travel?

Travel America is only available for domestic trips within the United States. This includes all 50 states and Washington DC. Unfortunately, trips to US territories such as Puerto Rico are not eligible for coverage.

What are shared benefits?

When it comes to travel insurance, shared benefits means the coverage amounts listed on the policy are shared across all covered travelers. In the event of a claim, the primary traveler who is listed on the policy would file the claim and submit all necessary receipts. The reimbursement on a claim will be paid to the primary traveler listed on the policy who will then distribute the funds to the traveling companions accordingly.

Are there any restrictions around Travel America?

If you are looking for a plan with primary coverage, you can choose Travelex’s Travel Select or Travel Basic plan.
