Regardless of how you plan your vacation/all inclusive vacation package, there are some things you're unable to control. Because of this our local travel agents in New London County recommend travel insurance, which will compensate you for unexpected emergencies while traveling.
There are several types of travel insurance you can elect to purchase, depending on the type of trip and length of stay. The most common travel insurance is Trip Cancellation/Interruption coverage. Most of these policies cover cancellations due to weather, sudden illness or death, jury duty, emergency military duty, and bankruptcy of airline or cruise line prior to departure. Other travel insurances also include terrorism insurance that reimburses your expenses in the event that the U.S. Department of State issues a travel warning advising not to travel within a given country for a period of time.
Medical emergencies is another common type of travel insurance. This type of coverage is particularly useful if you plan on traveling to underdeveloped countries, or if you suffer from a chronic illness that might require medical attention during the trip. These policies will reimburse you for the cost of doctor’s visits and medication. Travel health coverage policies vary widely, and we are happy to review your carrier’s policies with you.
It is also possible to obtain travel insurance that will cover non-refundable tickets in the event that a trip has to be cancelled for any number of reasons. Some coverage plans will cover missed connections as well, which can be a lifesaver in the event of a flight delay.
