Travel Insured Urges Families to Invest in Spring Break Travel Protection

by Erin Weiland | Feb 13, 2013
Spring break is approaching quickly and it represents one of the biggest travel periods of the year. Spring is the second most popular time to travel, representing almost 25% of all personal trips per year, according to the Travel Industry Association. Individuals often associate spring break with students, however, it also represents one of the biggest vacation seasons for families as well.

Several travelers associate travel insurance with hurricane season, ski trips, and for the elderly, but spring break vacations have one of the highest percentages of an emergency or disruption occurring. While traveling as family, children can be put at risk for experiencing accidents, sicknesses, or even cause a disruption in plans when in a different environment, that could cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Travelers can often overlook insurance for a spring break trip, but still face big disappointment if a family getaway is disrupted.

Travel Insured International, a leading privately-owned travel insurance provider, urges families who may have overlooked travel coverage in the past to reconsider for future spring break travel plans. The best time to purchase travel insurance is at the same time as trip reservations. However, it still may not be too late to help ensure that you and the kids enjoy time by the pool or a ride at the theme park this spring break.

•All of the four Travel Insured International® retail plans, including Worldwide Trip Protector, Worldwide Trip Protector Gold, Trip Protector Lite, and Trip Protector Lite Expanded provide Trip Cancellation or Interruption coverage due to sickness, injury or death of the insured, his or her travel companion, or any of their family members resulting in medically-imposed restrictions documented by the attending physician of the sick individual.
