Travel insurance is not something that many people pay much attention to while planning their holiday travel. Things like cheap airline tickets, hotel reservations and travel itinerary are the ones that dominate a traveller’s mind space the most. However, it is important to devote some time and effort determining the best travel insurance plan as it is just as important as say cheap flight tickets.

The importance of travel insurance is reflected in times of adversity. A wonderfully planned holiday can go haywire in case a passenger looses his baggage at the airport, a meticulously worked out vacation can be in dire straits if a person meets with some sort of accident. When misfortune strikes a comprehensive travel insurance plan becomes more important than those cheap flight tickets!

Tips before Buying Travel Insurance

While a flood of travel insurance policies can be found floating in the market, it is essential to pick the one that suits your interests and meets your demands. Take a look at certain vital factors that may assist travellers in zeroing on the best travel insurance plan for them.

First and foremost, be a little proactive while looking for an insurance plan. Contact travel agents, speak to insurance agencies and surf the Internet – if you can do it for cheap flight tickets, you can also do it for finding a suitable travel insurance policy!

Read the insurance documents carefully. There is no point buying a plan you know nothing about. Check out all the fine prints and make sure you have all the coverage you need on the trip.

Adventurer tourists and vacationers with risky adventure purists on their holiday agenda must ensure that their insurance plan covers each and every activity they intend to engage in. It must be kept in mind that some firms may offer entire coverage but only for a restricted frequency during the insured period.

Common Kinds of Coverage

When it comes to the kinds of coverage provided by the travel insurance firms, the following are the most common. However, it must be noted that plans can be altered as per travellers’ wish and this is only a broad idea.

Medical Treatment

It covers cost of treatment for the injured or the ill on the trip. If the estimated cost of treatment is more than the amount mentioned in the plan then prior approval of the insurer is obligatory.

Medical Assistance

Broadly, this category of travel insurance is all about getting the injured or the ill to the medical facility. Coverage of ambulance coasts is provided under this category.

Medical Evacuation

This facet of travel insurance provides coverage for the costs incurred while transferring the injured or the ill to a better medical facility from the one that is unable to treat the patient. International transfers are included in most plans.

Cancellation, Curtailment & Trip Interruption

The category offers coverage for deposits as well as transportation costs that can not be refunded back to the individual in the event he needs to terminate or cut short his tour to return home straight away.
