East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) June 27, 2012

With the busiest travel season finally here, and summer travel steadily increasing, the percentage of families going away for vacation during 2012 has reached its highest within the past few years. With fuel costs slowly declining, travelers are willing to spend a higher percentage on travel expenses including airfare, accommodations and activities, yet are still trying to find ways to save due to the economy. It was reported that over 30% of parents who purchase travel coverage do not insure their children when taking family vacations, often due to attempting to save on expenses.

Even during the best of times, traveling with children means you need the benefit of strong travel coverage due to the high risk of emergency medical costs for accidents, illness or a medical evacuation, as well as any added family travel expenses resulting from disruptions such as trip delays, lost or delayed baggage, and missed connections due to any inclement weather.

Travel Insured International, a leading privately-owned travel insurance provider, urges parents who may have overlooked travel coverage as a necessity in the past, to reconsider investing in a Worldwide Trip Protector Plan including “Kids Are Free” coverage to insure themselves as well as their kids for no additional fees during their summer 2012 travel plans.
