Weather. Missed Connections. Accidents. Injuries. Illnesses. Politics.

It’s all about what could go wrong even when you’ve done everything right.  We offer the most reliable and comprehensive travel insurance products on the market.

We partner with the highly reputable Allianz Global Assistance insurance provider to bring you the best values for both domestic and international travel. The plans include coverage for both business and personal travel.

Statistics show that 1 in 3 travelers choose some level of insurance protection while away from home and the numbers are growing every year as more people are traveling for business and pleasure that ever before.

Details Matter for the Best Coverage

Different plans cover different kinds and levels of losses, illnesses and accidents.  Whether you are traveling domestically or internationally also affects the kinds of issues and expenses for which you may need protection. If you are a frequent traveler, an annual plan may be the best value with the most comprehensive coverage.  So, it’s important to confirm your specific needs. We can help you with that.

Top 10 Reasons to Protect Yourself with Travel Insurance

TODAY Travel Editor, Peter Greenberg, recommends purchasing travel insurance to protect your financial investment and your peace of mind.  Greenberg lists nine reasons* why he thinks travel insurance is a must-have accessory. *And we have listed a 10th reason why travel insurance is important.

  1. Your flight has been cancelled.
  2. Your bags are lost and your medication is in it. You need to have an emergency prescription filled.
  3. Your passport and wallet are stolen; you need emergency cash and a replacement passport.
  4. You’re involved in an accident and adequate medical treatment is not available. You need a medical evacuation.
  5. You need to cancel your trip due to illness.
  6. Your cruise line, airline or tour operator goes bankrupt. You need your non-refundable expenses covered and to get to your destination.
  7. You have a medical emergency in a foreign country.
  8. A terrorist incident occurs in the city where you’re planning to visit and you want to cancel your trip.
  9. A hurricane, volcano, or earthquake forces you to evacuate your resort, hotel or cruise.
  10. And…in response to our unpredictable economy, there is also 10th reason:
    You lose your job, but you’ve already paid for your trip or cruise, and need your cash back.
