Why should I get a family travel insurance plan?When planning for a trip overseas or out of state, travel insurance can help protect you against medical emergencies, flight cancellations, lost baggage, and a multitude of other potential problems and mishaps. Travel insurance can also help pay for expenses associated with emergency medical costs such as medical evacuations, injuries, and illness if something were to happen to you or a family member during your trip. Without travel insurance, you could be left with expensive medical bills because your private healthcare plan might not fully cover you or your family while traveling. Travel insurance is also important to help protect you against potential losses as a result of transportation issues or political strife in certain countries. If your trip is canceled for a covered reason - such as you or a family member suffering a serious injury or sickness - travel insurance can provide reimbursement for incurred costs. However, if your trip gets canceled and you didn’t purchase travel insurance, all of the money spent towards your trip - such as flights, hotels, tours, excursions and more - could be completely lost. Travel insurance not only provides protection for you and your family, but it also provides protection for your wallet.
