The five primary types of travel Insurance are vacation cancellation/interruption, medical, evacuation, baggage and flight insurance. Consider all factors when determining what kind of and how much coverage is right for you.
Cancellation insurance is the most common kind of coverage found in every comprehensive travel Insurance policy. This covers unforeseen reasons like sickness, weather and legal obligations. The exact coverage varies from provider to provider.
Most travel medical insurance covers 24-hour emergency assistance, ambulance costs, hospital services and emergency dental work.
Evacuation insurance covers emergency medical evacuation to the nearest appropriate care facility if you are somewhere remote or in a place that cannot appropriately treat a condition.
Baggage insurance covers travelers for clothes, medication and other essential items if baggage is delayed in arriving at the destination. It also covers you if your possessions are lost, stolen or damaged during the trip.
Flight insurance covers your flights because of the higher cost of international fares in the event of a delay or cancellation because of bad weather, mechanical breakdowns or labor strikes.
