You have just decided on your vacation travel plans, consulted with your travel professional, and laid your credit card down for the deposits required to reserve your holiday plans. The subject of travel insurance has just come up, and having just spent money on the deposits and with the total amount left to pay – including an estimate of the air – itemized on a sheet in your hand, it is too easy to say “Well, I’ll have to think about it.”
Beware. It is too easy to dismiss this item as not really being a part of your travel plans, just an add on that might be “nice to have” rather than a necessity every bit as important as your plane ticket, your hotel reservation, etc.
But it’s too expensive ! you say. Yes, good travel insurance is pricey but if you just spent thousands on vacation plans, that’s thousands potentially you have to lose, and can in a blink of the eye – or an attack of the flu bug . Is it worth the risk?
