Q. Why buy Travel Insurance?
A. For vacation FLEXIBILITY and PEACE OF MIND. And of course, to insure against disasters and to re-coop financial loss.
There is Trip Cancelation for unexpected major emergencies, Trip Delay, Missed Connections, Baggage and Personal Effects Delayed, Lost or Stolen and more. The most important reason to purchase Travel Insurance is to protect you against Emergency Medical Expenses, Accidents and Injury. You have NO Health Insurance outside the United States. No Medicare. No Nothing. A medical emergency outside the US could be devastating both financially and health-wise.
A travel agent friend booked a mom and son on a cruise where Belize was a port of call. My friend begged the mom to buy Travel Insurance. She declined. On a zip line excursion off the ship, she somehow crashed into a rock seriously injuring a leg. The leg became infected. She has been hospitalized for days and has experienced thousands of dollars of hospital bills.
A client of mine on a routine doctor’s appointment a few days before leaving for a Sandals Resort Vacation was prescribed a medication that would cause him problems with sun exposure. He purchased Travel Insurance. No financial loss!
On a more pleasant note, no vacation plans yet? Want a last minute 6-night special to Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic, on a non-stop flight? Can you depart on a Friday and return on a Thursday for an incredible price? Give me a call and I can check on availability. This promotion lasts thru August 3rd.
European river cruising is the fastest growing travel destination even with the high cost of flying. Not interested in excessive airline prices or European safety issues? You can cruise US rivers instead and avoid long plane rides plus unreal pricing. There are always specials. I’m as close as an email or a phone call away.
