Why Buy Travel Insurance?
Sudden illness. Severe weather. Delayed flights. When the unexpected happens, you can rely on travel insurance to help make things right.
- If you have to cancel your trip for a covered reason, travel insurance can reimburse you for your prepaid, non-refundable trip costs. Without insurance, you could lose your vacation investment.
- If you experience a covered medical emergency, travel insurance can help ensure you get high-quality care and reimburse you for covered medical costs. Without insurance, you may have to pay out of pocket when traveling overseas.
- If you have a covered travel delay, travel insurance can reimburse you for necessary, eligible expenses like hotels and meals. Without insurance, delays can be expensive.
- If you face an unexpected crisis, travel insurance gives you access to 24-Hour Hotline Assistance for expert help and advice. Without insurance, you’re on your own.
We've Partnered with Allianz and Chubb Insurance
There are lots of travel insurance providers, but we’ve had great experiences with two providers. We like both providers because of their straightforward benefits and simple online claim processing. Allianz Global Assistance is used by over 40 million travelers annually. 84% of customers give them a 5-star rating, according to Trustpilot. They do a fantastic job of digitizing the process and making it easy. (You can get a quote in just a few minutes by filling out the form on the left.) Chubb Insurance is one of the largest providers in the world and you can still call them direct on the phone, 24 hours a day and talk to someone in the US who knows what they are doing and can help. If there is an issue, we also have direct lines to our rep and can help communicate with their team if needed. If you’d like a quote from Chubb, just let your agent know and we’ll send in a request on your behalf. (It takes us about 2 minutes.) Both companies are great. Both have comparable prices. One is a bit more tech friendly than the other. One is more “work with a live person”. Each have different levels of protection you can buy but it is wise to spend a few hundred dollars extra just in case someone gets sick, gets hurt, etc.
