What's the difference between flight insurance and travel insurance?
The main difference is that a flight insurance policy only covers your airfare. On the other hand, a travel insurance policy helps protect your flight as well as other parts of your trip. While you're planning your next trip, think about where you're going and what you'll be doing. Once you have that, it'll be easier to choose which policy works best for your trip.
What is not covered by travel insurance?
Your coverage is based on the plan you choose. However, in general some things that aren't normally covered by travel insurance are:
- Action and team sports, for example auto racing, pro sports travel, or other extreme sport activities
- Travel to get medical care
- Trip Cancellation because you changed your mind
For more information, please check your policy.
Is travel or trip insurance worth the cost?
Travel insurance can help protect your vacation or trips from unexpected things happening. You can travel without trip insurance but doing so brings greater risk if something goes wrong or you encounter unexpected delays. Flight insurance or trip insurance coverage can include things like flight cancellation, lost luggage, trip cancellation, emergency medical transportation, and more.
