Why do I need travel insurance?
Traveling creates memories of a lifetime, and can also mean encountering the unexpected; ranging from an inconvenient flight delay to a cancellation for sickness, or a truly serious medical emergency. In today's travel environment it’s increasingly important to protect yourself and your travel investment.
For a true sense of security, a comprehensive policy from a reputable, independent travel insurance company, such as Travel Guard, is paramount. Medical insurance policies may not protect your travels abroad and often have out-of-network deductibles. Likewise, coverage through credit cards and travel suppliers can have shortfalls and not fully protect you in travel situations like the above. We recommend Travel Guard, a leading provider of travel insurance in North America.
PEACE OF MIND
Whether you lose your job, a hurricane blows through your destination, or one of the travel suppliers declares bankruptcy, Travel Guard's comprehensive plan benefits help get you back on track and find the peace of mind your trip deserves.
Ensure you're covered if you see a doctor for a medical emergency while traveling. Your personal medical healthcare policy may offer limited coverage or none at all, once you travel outside the United States. Also, the plan may lower benefits or have deductibles when using an out-of-network doctor. Travel Guard has coverage for you – their plans will reimburse you for medical expenses from any doctor around the world when seen for a covered medical emergency.
CREDIT CARD SHORTFALLS
Chances are your credit card may not protect you in cases of travel delay, trip cancellation or emergency medical coverage overseas. These plans tend to have highly limited benefits - always do your research to ensure you're fully protected.
Your health and safety is a concern. If an emergency medical evacuation becomes necessary, we will transport you to an adequate facility to receive treatment. Additional benefits include transportation of a visitor of your choice to stay with you or to transport any traveling children back home, should you become hospitalized.
You work hard for the money and time invested in planning your vacation. Unfortunately even the most careful preparation doesn't avoid life's surprises if you need to cancel or interrupt your trip. Purchasing a Travel Guard protection plan will help make sure you don't walk away empty-handed.
A trip to the big game isn't much fun without your favorite team shirt or lucky socks. Travel Guard plans go above and beyond any homeowner's insurance policy - not only refunding you for items lost, stolen or damaged, but reimbursing you for necessary items you need to buy and continue having fun on your trip until your baggage is returned.
