Have you ever heard those horror stories of people vacationing and their luggage is lost or stolen. Most people today travel with their digital camera’s, camcorder and even their laptop every where they go. Now if your luggage was stolen and any of those three items or worse all three of them were stolen or lost along with all of your belongings. What would you do? Those electronics combined is at least $3000. It’s sad to say but this isn’t an uncommon problem. There are ton’s of different scenario’s of how this can happen, but they don’t really matter because the end result is always the same. You are left with nothing and that fun filled vacation quickly took a turn for the worst.
This unfortunate event may never happen to you, but what if it did? Think of the horror that you would feel losing all of the items that you usually travel with. There are many different types of situations that can turn your fun vacation into a vacation from hell.
There’s good news though. You can’t prevent these things from happening but you can protect yourself if something does unfortunately happen. And I mean anything and you can do this by taking a travel insurance policy out.
Travel insurance will protect your items so it’s important that you select the right amount of coverage in case your things were stolen. A $400 policy will cover your digital camera but it’s not going to cover your $1800 laptop. Of course it’s going to cost you more money, but don’t you think that it’s worth the security. It’s not going to cost you an arm and a leg to get travel insurance. And did you know that it will not only protect your belongings it’s also going to protect you if there was a medical emergency. Knowing that you have emergency medical assistance is a pretty great thing. And I know first hand how important it was. A friend of mine was traveling and during her travels she ended up in the hospital with spinal meningitis. Scary and a big extra expense that you don’t plan on having. Thankfully she took out a travel insurance policy that included emergency medical insurance otherwise the bills that she would have been stuck with would have been far more then she could have handled.
Let’s take a further look at what travel insurance can do for you and you will quickly begin to see why it’s so important to get when you take a vacation to anywhere in the world not just to Hamilton Island.
Delayed luggage allowance in case your luggage takes longer to arrive then you did. You are not going to smell good wearing the same clothes for a week straight, even if you do shower.
If your flight was canceled travel insurance will pay for alternative transport expenses, so you can still get to go on your vacation. And let’s not forget it will pay for cancellation fees and lost deposits even if you were to cancel your trip, of course you will need to have a good reason for canceling it such as illness.
Losing your cash is difficult, but if you have travel insurance it will even cover the money that stolen.
There are so many different types of travel insurance policies that cover a large amount of things. The best thing that you can do is talk to an agent and learn what the best coverage would be for your needs.
