What can a travel insurance policy do for you?

 During the past year we have heard much about the importance of travel insurance. Although it does add expense to your trip, it can reimburse you for many out-of-pocket expenses if you or a travel companion becomes ill or has an accident. 

Most policies also cover trip delay, trip interruption, lost baggage or baggage delay, flight delays, and much more. (Check for COVID coverage, as that may not be covered)

In addition, there are many services you might not be aware that having a travel insurance policy could
entitle you to. Need help planning your trip or booking guides and tours? Want to reserve a tee time at your destination or purchase tickets for a special event? Lost your eyeglasses or run out of a prescription and need a replacement? Many plans include a concierge service that can assist you with such things.

Although these are non-insurance services, knowing assistance is available can help make travel easier. The graphic below outlines some of the most common tasks that may be available to you through your policy. Make the most of what you've paid for!
