Whether you travel for business or fun, international travel involves risks. Far from home you may suffer sickness or injury, travel delay, baggage loss, or worse. Your existing insurance will rarely provide adequate protection for these and other risks, and you may find yourself in a financial crisis while abroad. Appropriate travel insurance will protect your travel investment, cover emergency medical expenses, and give you peace of mind. Insurance companies offer many different plans and benefits, which provide coverage for trip cancellation or interruption, emergency medical expenses for illness or injury, costly emergency medical evacuation, travel delays, lost or damaged baggage, emergency assistance services, etc.
