Vacations are an investment. You spend countless hours planning and looking forward to your trip. But what if the unexpected happens and you have to cancel your vacation? What happens if you have a medical emergency on vacation? What happens if your luggage is lost? What if you miss your flight or it gets canceled? What happens if you get quarantined on vacation? These are all questions you need to ask yourself. Are you protected? At Grand Luxe Destinations, we always recommend our clients purchase travel insurance to ensure they are protected.
Protect Your Travel Investment
There are many factors that are totally out of your hands when it comes to a vacation. Think about it. Flight delays, hurricanes, snow storms, evacuations, and unexpected health problems are all things that you cannot help. These events though can cause you to lose the money already invested in your vacation travel plans for pre-paid and non-refundable costs.
With travel insurance from companies, you are covered from potential problems including baggage delays, lost luggage, stolen items, trip delays, weather events, and mandatory evacuations. Travel insurance also has medical coverage. This is especially important when you are on a cruise in international waters. Many times, your current health insurance will not cover medical expenses outside of the United States. Travel insurance is relatively inexpensive when compared to the potential risks of a canceled trip.
Peace of Mind
In 2020 the travel industry experienced severe devastation. Airports closed, cruises halted operations, resorts shut down, and borders closed. Millions were left stranded having to find ways to get back to their homes or recoup money on canceled trips. When you use a travel agent, we take care of everything including rebooking your trip for another date. However, some destinations do not reimburse travel costs for cancellations. With travel insurance, you are insured so if the unthinkable happens, you are covered. Travel insurance takes a lot of the worry out of your vacation so you can concentrate on the countdown!
