Whether you’re impatiently awaiting to cross off one of your post-quarantine bucket-list destinations or you’re planning to visit family you haven’t seen in a year and a half, the desire to travel is strong right now for a great many of us. In a survey of 3,000 people, American Express Travel’s Global Trends Report found that 78 percent of respondents want to travel in 2021 to relieve the stresses from 2020. But in order to jet off responsibly post-quarantine, these folks may want to consider buying travel insurance. And, it seems many are doing just that.
