Travel insurance gives travelers coverage for unforeseen problems, from a cancelled flight to a serious illness-or in rare cases, even an act of terrorism or the financial default of a travel supplier. If an illness, accident, or other covered unforeseen circumstance forces a traveler to cancel or interrupt their plans, they face two major financial losses-money invested in non-refundable pre-payments, and medical expenses that in many instances may not be covered by health insurance.
Often a traveler will lose non-refundable, deposits and pre-payments that can add up to hundreds-or even thousands-of dollars. A comprehensive travel insurance plan through Travel Guard can provide trip cancellation coverage for the traveler's vacation investment-the insurance company reimburses the traveler for all pre-paid, non-refundable expenses for a covered loss.
It reimburses for forfeited, non-refundable, unused payments or deposits if the traveler must cancel or interrupt their trip due to a covered reason.
In addition to trip cancellation and interruption, the more comprehensive travel insurance plans available today may also cover emergency medical expenses; emergency medical transportation, when ordered by a doctor, to the nearest adequate medical facility; reimbursement for accommodations and expenses incurred due to travel delays; reimbursement for the purchase of essential items if baggage is delayed; and coverage against lost, stolen or damaged baggage.
Many travel insurance policies do not cover terrorism, or only cover terrorist acts that occur on foreign soil. Travel insurance through Travel Guard can cover terrorist incidents both in the United States and abroad.
Many of Travel Guard's retail insurance programs include financial default coverage if the program is purchased within 15 days of making the initial trip deposit.
Yes. Travel Guard offers travel insurance plans for an array of budgets, from modest trips to high-end luxury vacations. There are also products for last-minute getaways and extended trips, and specific coverage plans for cruise travelers, golf travelers, students, and sports travel.
The cost of travel insurance is based, in most cases on the value of the trip and the age of the traveler. Typically, the cost is five to seven percent of the trip cost.
To boost travelers' confidence when traveling, Travel Guard has added LiveTravel® assistance, which provides 24-hour, "911" emergency travel agency-type services to all standard retail plans, in case a traveler has to change a flight or a hotel room. Travel Guard has also added assistance with emergency cash transfers, pre-trip consultation services (travel advisories, passport requirements, inoculation information, etc.), and live messaging, which will relay any e-mail or phone message to family, friends or business associates.
