Hi, I'm Dan Drennen, the Director of Salesand Marketing for Travel Insurance Center.
Let's take a moment and talk about whethertravel insurance protection is right for you? Let me ask you the following basic questions Can you afford to lose your vacation investment? Most of us work hard for our money and savedup so we can take a nice trip every now and then.
So what if something does go wrong?Say an unforeseen illness or injury, a death in the family, or some other unforeseen circumstancethat causes you to cancel the trip.
Would you like to have that non-refundable tripcost back? If an emergency occurred while you are onthe trip and you have to cut the trip short.
Can you afford the cost of a return airlineticket home? Do you know if your regular health insurancecovers you when you are away from home? Does it provide coverage for you in foreigncountry? If you become severely ill or injured while traveling who would you call for assistance?Who would arrange transportation to get you home.
More importantly, who would pay forit? A Medical Evacuation from overseas can costupwards of $100,000 dollars or more.
That's slightly more than my credit card allows.
What If your bags get lost or you have tospend an extra night in a hotel because of weather-related delays? Can you afford topay for additional lodging and meals? If you answered 'No' to any of these questions,chances are travel insurance may be a wise investment for you.
In the end.
