Re: Travel insurance recommendations?

DrFumblefinger ·
Hi Animaniac Too! Travel insurance is not for everyone, but whenever I travel overseas now I buy it (mostly because our parents are old and frail and we never know when we might need to cancel a trip). It does add to the cost of a trip, about 5% or so, but if you're going to a remote place I think it's definitely worth buying. The point in purchasing travel insurance is to buy a policy that will pay you when you file a legitimate claim. Anyone will be glad to collect your insurance money,...

Re: Getting travel insurance is really important

I'm also glad this worked out for you. I only buy trip cancellation/emergency coverage for expensive trips like when I'm overseas. I take the small risk domestically and don't get it because I can afford those losses more easily than the cost of overseas airfare, etc. Besides our own health, my wife and I both have aged parents and most policies cover emergencies relating to them. Generally a good policy costs about 5% of the value of what you insure. I usually buy with TravelGuard. The one...
