Travel is an investment of both your time and money, and it is important to know how you can protect yourself. There are many types of trip protection, from travel insurance to medical evacuation, and it is just a matter of finding the right match for your unique needs. We reached out to the gurus at Brownell’s Insurance Desk to break down the different types of coverage.
Travel insurance can cover cancellations, trip disruptions (like delayed flights), lost baggage, medical expenses, and so much more. There are different levels of protection available, plus add-ons like rental car collision or cancel for any reason. Learn more about why you need travel insurance here.
Medical evacuation coverage ensures that you can return home if you have an emergency medical situation. This means if you are hospitalized in another country, you will be medically evacuated to your hospital at home.
With the uncertainty of travel around COVID-19, you now have the option to purchase COVAC GLOBAL. This membership will provide air transport home if you were to test positive while traveling abroad. Instead of having to quarantine at the destination in which you tested positive, you would be able to quarantine at home.
This is the big picture overview of coverage, but your advisor is here to help you navigate the world of travel insurance so that you can travel confidently. With the help of our Insurance Desk as well as our travel insurance partners, we can provide you with the intel you need to determine which plan is right for you.
