  • Why purchase travel insurance?

    We recommend Travel Protection because of common travel problems such as flight delays, injuries and illness, unpredictable weather and lost or stolen luggage. Our Travel Insurance Plan provides protection designed just for travelers and can provide coverage for many of the things that can go wrong before and during your trip.

    Top Ten Reasons to Use Travel Insurance

    • You have to cancel your trip due to an unexpected event such as bad weather, an illness in the family or the financial default of your airline, cruise line or tour operator. 
    • You have to return home early due to an unexpected emergency such as an illness or death in the family. 
    • Your luggage is lost or delayed, forcing you to purchase necessary essentials, or prescription medications. 
    • Your luggage or personal effects are damaged or stolen. You become ill or injured and learn that your health care plan doesn't cover you outside the U.S. 
    • You need an emergency medical evacuation due to an accident or sudden illness. 
    • You run into flight delays and miss a portion of your trip or cruise. 
    • Your trip is interrupted due to an unexpected hurricane or storm. 
    • You lose your passport, leaving you stranded abroad. 
    • You need assistance with replacing a prescription or an emergency cash transfer.

  • What is the best way to pay for things while traveling?

    Credit Cards

    We recommend using a credit card wherever possible because you will get a better exchange rate than at an ATM or exchange bureau. A lot of credit cards still charge a foreign-transaction fee, so make sure to find a credit card that has no fees.Most hotels, restaurants and retailers will accept major credit cards in large cities.

    Cash

    When you need pocket money, use your debit card at a bank. You will get a much more favorable exchange rate than those offered by foreign-exchange bureaus.

    It is also a good idea to have a little cash on you when you arrive to an airport in a foreign country in case you need to pay for a visa or taxi and unfortunately, ATMs are not always reliable!Try to change as little cash as possible at the airport currency exchange bureau, as they often charge hefty fees for foreign travelers.
