INFOGRAPHIC: Is Travel Insurance Right For You?

  • Travel Team

When traveling, planning ahead should mean more than just packing the right stuff. Getting travel insurance should be one of the most important arrangements that should be made, aside from airline tickets and hotel reservations.

Think about this: 

According to the U.S. Travel Insurance Association, one in eight U.S. adults had their travel impacted due to natural disasters or world events and only 29% of those affected had travel insurance. Being insured means you are protecting yourself from such unexpected circumstances, which mean little to no headache so that you can fully enjoy that planned vacation with the family. In fact, of those who bought a policy, 96% reported that they were satisfied with their purchase.

The main concern that most people might have with regards to purchasing travel insurance is the cost. However, a policy can actually be as little as four to eight percent of the total cost of the trip, according to The Wall Street Journal. This far outweighs the potential worth of a canceled flight or lost luggage. Just be sure that you are buying the right type of insurance – the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that there are three main types of travel insurance that you can choose from depending on your needs: trip cancellation insurance, travel health insurance and medical evacuation insurance.
