In this overview of travel insurance, we answer some common and not-so-common questions about what is covered and how much it costs. Sometimes people get confused about the term "Travel Insurance". Some travelers and insurance companies describe Travel Insurance as medical insurance while you travel, while others simply describe it as insurance for cancelled flights and missing luggage. No matter what name you give it, you will want all of these things.
From missed flights to lost luggage, to stolen belongings to injuries or sickness while on your trip, "Travel Insurance" can cover all of these things depending on which policy you purchase. Not all policies are created equal, and many different things can be covered depending on which you purchase.
The good news is that Travel Insurance doesn't have to be expensive. (More on that in the post.)
