What is travel insurance?
Is credit card travel insurance any good?
Travel insurance coverage from a credit card varies from card to card. It’s important to read the fine print of your cardholder agreement regarding travel insurance to make sure you get the coverage you need. The last thing you want is to not have the coverage you need – or worse, not have enough coverage.
How much is travel insurance?
Travel insurance rates can vary in cost, depending on the following factors:
Who you buy travel insurance from: Not all insurance companies charge the same rates for travel insurance or have the same coverages.
How old you are: Typically, travelers under 65 pay lower rates. If you’re traveling with minors, you may get a lower rate or be able to add them to your travel insurance policy at no additional cost.
Duration of trip: The shorter your trip, the less at risk you are.
How many people you’re traveling with: The more people you travel with, the more exposure to risk you have.
How much coverage you need: Whether you travel for business or pleasure, you may want a basic plan for a single trip that provides coverage for a $1 million, or you may want a comprehensive policy that covers your family for $5 million.
Why purchase travel insurance?
