Travel Insurance


I have a friend who just returned from San Miguel de Allende with two broken ankles. She merely walked off of a small drop in the commonly uneven sidewalks that we encounter all over the world and boom! She sat in the home she was staying in feeling excruciating pain for two days before her flight home. She waited another week before being scheduled for surgery. All of the pain and suffering would have been avoided if she had purchased travel insurance. Travel insurance provides life-saving coverage when unexpected things happen. Purchasing travel insurance covers you for hundreds of situations might require you to cancel your trip, have to return home unexpectedly or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling. Here are 10 of the most compelling reasons to purchase travel insurance when your trip does not go as planned.

  1. Need to cancel a trip due to a number of valid reasons
  2. Flight delays and cancellations that can affect your trip and cause you to lose time and money
  3. Traveling with your family
  4. Health concerns
  5. Weather that can affect your vacation plans
  6. Emergency medical issues in foreign destination
  7. Loss of luggage, passports, credit cards or other items
  8. Death in family
  9. Political instability
  10. Supplier default
