Ten Reasons to Have Travel Insurance

10 Reasons to Buy Travel Insurance for Your Vacation

There are hundreds of circumstances that could cause you to cancel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling.To demonstrate the importance of purchasing travel insurance, and emergency travel services, here are 10 common examples of what could go wrong.

1. It's 10 p.m. and you and your immediate 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?
2. 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?
3. Your wallet is stolen and your passport. Where do you turn for emergency cash, and how will you get your passport replaced?
4. You're involved in an accident and adequate medical treatment is not available. Who will help arrange and pay for a medical evacuation?
5. If your sister-in-law becomes seriously ill and you must cancel your trip, what happens to your non-refundable deposits or pre-payments?
6. You arrive in Myrtle Beach 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?
7. Your airline or travel agent goes bankrupt. Who will pay for your non-refundable expenses? Who will help get you to your destination?
8. You're walking down a cobblestone street in Charleston, South Carolina and twist your ankle. Who can help you find a physician?
9. Three weeks before your scheduled arrival, an incident occurs in the city to which you are visiting, making it necessary to cancel. Who will pay if you want to cancel your trip?
10. You are at a beach resort in the Carolinas and a mandatory evacuation is ordered due to an approaching hurricane. Who will help you evacuate and who will reimburse your lost vacation investment?
