Q&A with a Travel Insurer: How Travel Insurance Can Protect You on Your Next Trip

May 21, 2021

As people prepare for summer vacations, they may have more questions than usual concerning their travel plans as we continue to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. Travellers are more concerned now with the safety and cleanliness of a travel destination, as opposed to the luxury or comfort. Additionally, all travellers are wondering how they can stay protected in the event of a travel emergency, like contracting COVID-19 prior to or during their vacation.

Jeremy Murchland, president of Seven Corners, a global travel insurance company, answers frequently asked questions around ways to stay protected, both medically and financially, before you embark on your summer journey and why travel insurance may be the best option to protect you and your travel companions.

The medical coverage that travel insurance provides becomes especially important when you’re traveling internationally. The financial coverage will be important whether you’re opting for domestic or international travel in order to protect your trip expenses, like airfare or the cost of your hotel or cruise.
