Travel Insured Releases Travel Insurance Infographic

by Erin Weiland | Jun 13, 2013

Travel Insured International, a leading travel insurance company, has released a new infographic highlighting the benefits and pitfalls of two different approaches to traveling with and without a travel insurance policy. Travel Insured wanted to introduce a new way to portray the importance of travel coverage to individuals in an exciting, visual form that could be easily related to and shared.

The infographic explores a hypothetical vacation that has been planned by Mark and Marvin, two 32 year old fictional twins who have booked a dream trip to Peru to hike Machu Picchu, explore the Amazon, and visit the City of Cusco. Marvin, the more responsible twin books his trip with a travel agent and purchase travel insurance, while Mark, the more adventurous twin book his trip online and opts out of travel insurance coverage for their vacation.

The infographic takes you along Mark and Marvin’s adventure and the travel disruptions and accidents that they experience. With flight delays, lost luggage, and medical emergencies, the difference between being protected by travel coverage and not are demonstrated. In the end, Mark only pays an additional $234 with a travel insurance policy, while Marvin is forced to pay $12,350 without travel protection.
