Protect yourself from unforseen travel mishaps.
Enlightened travelers recognize the need to cover the investment they make in their travel plans by purchasing travel insurance coverage. Headline-grabbing events are less likely to ruin vacation plans than more common problems such as an illness in the family or a host of other unexpected occurrences, like a missed flight connection, lost wallet or passport, or sprained ankle.
The right travel insurance plan can cover penalties should you have to change or cancel your travel plans for any reason, and be your 24/7 lifeline while traveling. More so than ever, travel insurance is a "must have" item for most vacation travelers. Each year we have clients that have a need to process claims. Without travel insurance coverage, they would have spent tens of thousands of dollars on medical and evacuation costs.
There are a number of travel insurance options, and we highly recommend Travel Guard, the industry's leading provider. Purchasing is quick and convenient from your TravelStore agent or online. Travel Guard insurance provides essential coverage, excellent medical evacuation support and 24/7 assistance. Primary medical coverage (when purchased within 21 days of booking your trip) and Cancel for Work Reasons coverage are included in our plans. As your best safety net, Cancel For Any Reason coverage is optionally available.
