Travel Insurance Information

Why do I need travel insurance?

Because sometimes…

You have to cancel a trip last-minute.

Travel insurance can reimburse you for your prepaid, non-refundable trip costs — including vacation rentals, car rentals, hotels and flights — if you have to cancel for a covered reason.


Travel delays leave you stranded.

Travel insurance can reimburse you for eligible meals, accommodation and transportation expenses during a covered delay.


You get sick or hurt when you’re far from home.

Travel insurance can reimburse you for care following a covered medical emergency while traveling. We can even arrange and pay for a medical evacuation if needed.


Fender-benders are unavoidable.

Renting a car means taking on a big financial risk; even a tiny scrape can cost you hundreds. Low-priced rental car insurance lets you drive worry-free.


You need help in a hurry.

Whether you’re planning a week-long road trip or a weekend getaway, you never know what might happen. Travel insurance gives you access to our 24-Hour Assistance hotline for expert, personalized support in a crisis.

General Information

  1. Benefits: protection against financial risk/losses and access to assistance services wherever you are.
  2. The average cost of travel insurance should be 5-10% of trip costs depending on selected plan.
  3. Travel insurance cost is based on just two factors: prepaid trip costs and age. Medical history, or destination is not a cost factor in getting a quote.
  4. Any outlay of cost should be considered prepaid cost (determined by traveler); flights, organized tour, tips, spending money, hotels, etc. 
  5. Companies offer a range of plans varying in coverage levels and cost. Example plan coverages below:
    • Basic coverage – trip cancellation/interruption and small compensation for travel delay.
    • Prime coverage (recommended for overseas) – emergency medical/dental/transport, baggage loss, missed connection.
  6.  The earlier you buy trip insurance the longer your coverage window.  Most plans require securing a plan within 14 days of making first trip payment or deposit.
