Your Passport to Peace of Mind: Why Travel Insurance is Your Best Travel Companion

When booking your trip with iTravel2Getaway, we highly encourage each of our travelers to purchase travel insurance.

Picture this:

You're all set for your dream vacation, or maybe you've already begun your long-anticipated adventure. 

Suddenly, life throws you a curveball. 

That's where travel insurance swoops in to save the day! 

It's like having a safety net for your adventures, ensuring that if/when unexpected events come your way, they can be handled with peace of mind. 

Let's dive into the most common types of coverages most companies offer. 

Coverage for Medical Emergencies:

We all like to believe “it won't happen to us”. 

Unfortunately, sometimes it's not a matter of if, but when a medical emergency happens. 

On top of the expected stress that an emergency brings, dealing with this thousands of miles from the comfort of your home adds a whole other level of fret. 

Travel insurance can potentially help cover expenses relating to medical emergencies such as hospital bills and emergency evacuation. 

Protection for Trip Cancellations and Interruptions:

Ever had to cancel or cut short a trip due to unforeseen circumstances?

It's a major bummer, I know.

But what's an even greater loss is throwing away all the hard-earned money you spent to make the trip possible.

But with travel insurance, you can kiss those worries goodbye!

If life throws you a curveball and your plans go sideways, there are coverages that help soften the blow. 

Trip Cancellation and Interruption coverages can potentially foot the bill for any unused portion of your trip if you must cancel, return home early, or miss a leg of the itinerary.

Assistance in Lost or Delayed Baggage:

Ah, the joys of airline travel.

Lost luggage, anyone?

Don't fret – travel insurance has a solution for that too!

If your bags decide to take an unexpected detour, your insurance steps in to help you track them down and cover the essentials until they're back in your loving arms.

Cancel for any reason: 

Cancel for Any Reason coverage offers travelers the most cancellation flexibility and is the only coverage option available without any sneaky fine print exclusions.

However, this benefit is often time-sensitive and has other eligibility requirements, so not all travelers will qualify.
