What is Travel Insurance?

Is staying at home for so long giving you the itch to travel at some point?  Are you asking yourself this question:  Can travel insurance help if I have to cancel plans due to COVID-19?  

Travel Insurance - we don't sell it here at Elliot Whittier Insurance, but, we do get questions about it.  With COVID-19 being a new concern, are you thinking that when you are ready to travel again that you may be thinking about travel insurance?

Many people are wondering when it will be safe to travel again, and how travel insurance may help under certain scenarios.


Again, we are not experts on the subject of Travel Insurance but, we did find this interesting article from Forbes.com so we thought we would share with you.  Some interesting points to consider:

  • Does this travel insurance policy cover me  for trip cancellation and medical expense due to COVID, or is that excluded?
  • Are sudden travel bans covered?
  • What is the level of those benefits?
  • Trip cancellation due to injuries, weather, hurricanes, terrorism?  
  • Does the travel insurance plan offer "cancel for any reason" coverage?

We encourage you to do your own research and carefully read all the terms and conditions of each plan to see which one suits your needs and budget, as we have not individually vetted them, and nor are we endorsing any of them. 

With that in mind, we hope you find some helpful information for your future travels!
