Don't be silly and travel without insurance. We protect items like our homes, our cars and ourselves. Why wouldn't you protect your travel investment? Most people that choose not to purchase travel insurance do so because no one has explained the true necessity of this insurance. Anywhere But Here Travel, Inc. now requires that you have some form of travel insurance before traveling with us. Here is why:
Why should I get travel insurance?
There are many reasons why you will choose to purchase travel insurance. Not unlike auto insurance, home owners/renters insurance and life insurance, travel insurance protects you from the unplanned and the unforeseen. Even when you travel with a great company like Anywhere But Here Travel, Inc., there is always the possibility of airline delays, lost luggage, medical emergencies, etc. We are only human and don’t have control over everything involved in travel so the choice to purchase travel insurance is made to protect you from losing money or even having to spend more money unexpectedly.
Here are some examples of how travel insurance benefits you:
If on the way to the airport, there was a traffic jam due to an accident and it caused you to miss your flight, the airlines may have you purchase a completely new ticket at full face value. Even worse, it may delay your vacation by a day if there aren’t any flights available. Without travel insurance, you have to pay for a new ticket and potentially an overnight at a nearby airport hotel. When you have travel insurance, these costs are covered and your out of pocket expense is greatly reduced.*
If you or your travel partner were to become ill to the point where a doctor says it is in your best interest not to travel, you are forced to delay or even completely cancel your vacation. Last minute cancellations are generally non-refundable so without insurance, you have just lost any money you have paid towards your travel plans. With travel insurance, you are covered and can file a claim for a refund of your trip costs.*
You show up to your desired destination, but somehow your luggage gets left behind. The airline says it’s on its way but you won’t have it until tomorrow. This is the most common of claims for travel insurance which unfortunately means, it happens more often than it should. Without insurance you are out the expense of your necessary items that may be in your delayed baggage. With travel insurance, you are covered.*
Those are just a few examples of things that could happen that you have no control over. This information is provided not to scare you but to educate you on the importance of travel insurance. Clearly, travel insurance is a must-have to protect your travel investment.
