You may wonder why you need travel insurance for your vacation. It’s not just your investment you’ll be protecting; it’s protecting yourself and your family. Most health insurance companies (including Medicare) in the United States do not cover individuals while they are traveling out of the country-it’s written right in your passport. The U.S. State Department recommends trip protection and so does Cruise Planners.
Insurance protects the unexpected. Worldwide Travel Protection* and Worldwide Travel Protection with Cancel Anytime* from Allianz Global Assistance offers benefits like trip cancellation and interruption, emergency medical and dental coverage and a 24-hour assistance hotline so help is always just a phone call away. Cancel Anytime even provides protection if your vacation is canceled or interrupted for covered business reasons.
- Coverage if you have to cancel, interrupt or delay a trip for a variety of covered reasons like covered illness, injury and more.
- Reimbursement for covered medical and dental expenses and medical transportation for covered expenses incurred during your trip.
- Coverage for lost, damaged, stolen or delayed baggage.
- Benefits if you are required to work for covered reasons.
- Protection for supplier default in situations where a carrier, cruise line, tour operator or other travel entity that is on the covered travel list goes into financial default.
- Protection for existing medical conditions when plan is purchased on or before final trip payment as shown on your original trip invoice.
- Worldwide Travel Protection with Cancel Anytime policy provides extra flexibility.
- Concierge service and 24-hour hotline assistance.
