Top 10 Reasons to Purchase Travel Protection
Most Travelex plans include trip cancellation/interruption coverage which allows you to cancel or interrupt your trip for a covered sickness or injury and be reimbursed for non-refundable expenses related to your trip, protecting your travel investment.
When a medical emergency happens far away from home, you want to ensure you receive adequate medical care and emergency transportation for you if needed to the nearest facility or back home. Many plans also include pre-existing condition coverage when purchase requirements are met.
Travelex trip cancellation/interruption benefits protect against involuntary employment termination, layoffs, transfers, allowing you to recover your trip investment if the unthinkable should happen. You must have been continuously employed with the same employer for 1 year prior to the termination or layoff. Not applicable to temporary employment, independent contractors or self-employed persons.
Common carriers with financial difficulties are becoming increasingly common. Purchasing Travelex travel protection provides cancellation coverage due to bankruptcy or financial insolvency of your airline, tour operator or cruise line when bankruptcy or financial insolvency occurs more than 14 days following your effective date.
Whether your bag is lost or merely delayed for 12 hours or more, you can be reimbursed for the purchase of clothing and personal articles so you can enjoy your vacation.
Inclement weather and mechanical difficulties may delay arrivals into a connecting city past the departure of the next flight. If your travel delay is 5 hours or more, you can be reimbursed for the unused portion of your trip and for additional accommodations and meals.
A terrorist act occurring within 30 days of your scheduled departure date in the departure city or in a city which is a scheduled destination are reasons to cancel your trip and protect your investment.
