You planned and saved for this trip, scheduled vacation time, and arranged for a pet sitter, but what about the unexpected storm that caused the airport to close and your flight to be cancelled. Lost luggage? An accident? Whether you’re traveling for a two-week trip to Europe, snowboarding for week in Tahoe or rafting the Grand Canyon, you’ll want to consider getting travel insurance to protect your travel investment.
Depending on the policy, travel insurance may provide for a wide range of coverage such as: trip costs due to cancellations or interruptions, trip delays due to lost or stolen passports, injury, sickness, natural disasters, baggage delays, lost or stolen sports equipment and personal effects, etc.
