There are MANY reasons for a trip to be cancelled.  A personal situation in your life, a major weather challenge, a medical emergency, or a problem with a third party vendor that is directly related to your travel.  A trip can be very expensive, especially if it’s with your family.  Here are a few examples for why travel insurance is so important and when it can aid you:

FlightCancellation1. Cancellations:

It’s 11 p.m. and you and your family arrive at the airport for a connecting flight, only to find that your flight has been cancelled. Who can assist you with finding new flights to get everyone home? Or…

Four weeks before your scheduled arrival, a terrorist incident occurs in the city to which you are planning to visit. Who will pay if you want to cancel your trip? Or…

Your cruise line, airline or tour operator goes bankrupt. Who will pay for your non-refundable expenses? Who will help get you to your destination?


LostWalletPassport2. Lost passport/wallet:

Your first visit to Europe, and your passport and wallet are stolen. Where do you turn for emergency cash, and how will you get your passport replaced?


MedicalTreatment3. Medical emergencies:

You’re involved in an accident and adequate medical treatment is not available. Who will help arrange and pay for a medical evacuation. Or…

Your bag was lost with your insulin inside. You need help to locate your bag as soon as possible and have your emergency prescription filled. Who do you call?

LosrLuggage4. Lost luggage:

You arrive in Aruba and your luggage doesn’t. If it’s lost, who will help you find it? If it’s delayed, who will pay for your necessities? If it’s stolen, who will pay to replace it?


Hurricane5. Extreme weather events:

You are at a beach resort in Myrtle Beach, and you are forced to evacuate due to an approaching hurricane. Who will help you evacuate and who will reimburse your lost vacation investment?
