Do I Really Need Travel Insurance?
By Jen Campbell of Escape Destinations Travel
Yes, I hear it ALL The Time. Just last week I had a travel client call me in a panic because her friend could absolutely not go on the All Inclusive Trip they had planned for NEXT MONTH! YIKES! For only a few extra dollars....get the insurance!
Why, because it can protect you from illness, sudden changes in your plans, an unexpected death in the family and also affects the other people traveling with you. You don't want to end up with the extra cost as the one getting "stuck" on the trip which was one together, but now you have to pay more to travel solo.
So, the story doesn't end yet for my client, she's scrambling to find someone to join her on her trip to Mexico, very much last minute. And the cost to change the flights (think supply and demand means higher price) for the new person will be higher, and the friend who now can't go, she's lost her entire vacation money! To the tune of over $1,800! So the moral of this story....pay a tad bit extra for the peace of mind that comes with having travel insurance. It really IS worth it in the end- I promise!
