So, should you go ahead and spend a little extra on that investment? Samarah from Amarillo Travel Network has some thoughts.
The best insurance offers an opportunity to cancel for any reason and that allows you to get a check back in the mail vs. just travel credit.
Why Do You Need It?
- Most health insurance does not cover when out of the country
- Weather is considered an act of God and airlines do not have to guarantee you food vouchers, hotel or a rebooking if they must cancel due to weather
- We never think anything bad will happen to us or that we would need to cancel or change plans for any reason - but it does happen!
What Does it Cover?
- Most people are surprised that a good insurance can cover you if your luggage is lost, stolen or delayed getting to you. A good insurance can cover if a family member passes away or you fall too ill to travel. Good insurance can also help you get rebooked in the unfortunate incident that you are traveling and need to get back home in case of an emergency.
