Why Travel Insurance....?
International travel can mean encountering the unexpected, ranging from the inconvenient to truly serious. Travel protection plans offer comprehensive benefits to meet the challenges of travel and help you enjoy a worry-free trip.
Not sure you need travel protection? We have compiled the Top 10 to highlight the importance of purchasing a plan before you depart on your trip:
1. "I’ve become ill and don’t feel well enough to travel"
When you purchase a plan that offers trip cancellation/ interruption coverage within a specified period of your initial trip deposit, you are eligible for waiver of pre-existing medical conditions. That means you can cancel your trip for an unforeseen sickness - and be reimbursed for any non-refundable expenses relating to your trip. Travel Insurance Click Here
