Considering the amount of money you have to pay up front to book a trip, it is hard to imagine skipping trip insurance. A two-week cruise can easily cost $10,000 for a couple. Despite their investment they may still be out of luck for obtaining a refund when the trip is prepaid and they have to cancel at the last moment. When experiencing international travel, insurance is always advisable because even travel inconveniences can become expensive without it. What happens when you fly to Australia but your luggage never arrives? Chances are that you will be the one left holding the proverbial bag with no clothing to wear other than what you are already wearing. What if you are visiting an Australian beach and have the misfortune to step on a Box Jellyfish? When it happens the normal result is an expensive trip to the hospital. Travel insurance means you will have no need to worry about paying for these worst case scenarios.

Travel Insured International has been helping people enjoy worry-free vacations, school trips, and business travel since 1994. Over the years the company has received had a high level of positive feedback from customers who invested in trip insurance and came to appreciate that the coverage was worth every cent. Consider the case of Monica, who booked a flight with an elderly parent who became ill, forcing her to cancel their trip. Because she was insured, Monica was fully reimbursed for the money she had prepaid toward the flights. “It is hard enough dealing with a parent getting ill without facing having the hassle of dealing with the airline and the insurance company. You certainly made this a pleasant experience for me,” she wrote to Travel Insured International.

A customer from Florida wrote this to a customer service representative: “Thanks for all your help. You are a credit to your job and to Travel Insured International.” The note was sent after the unfortunate traveler was delayed in Atlanta, missing a connecting flight to New York. The missed flight resulted in the travelers having to buy new tickets to Europe and spend the night at the airport. Their bags were lost, adding insult to injury. A call to Travel Insured International to intiate the claims process resulted in the extra airline ticket costs being repaid, along with Trip Delay and Baggage Delay Coverage. Without investing in trip insurance, the travelers would have needed to absorb the additional travel expenses.
