Le Voyage Travel is happy to offer travel insurance plans through their partner, Allianz Global Assistance.
What Are the Benefits of Travel Insurance?
Part of travelers’ responsibility when it comes to educating themselves about travel insurance includes learning how and when their other travel partners may or may not offer them assistance when a trip doesn’t go as planned.
Benefits of travel insurance include:
Lost Baggage: Lost and damaged bags are the No. 2 complaint issued to the Department of Transportation.
Trip Cancellation Protection: This is the big one, and includes reimbursement for non-refundable trip payments and deposits.
Trip Interruption Protection: Sometimes trips start on time and end prematurely due to forces of nature and other circumstances beyond your control. This benefit includes reimbursement for unused costs and transportation costs to return home.
24-Hour Hotline Assistance: While this doesn’t come with a dollar amount, getting real-time help when you’re in a pickle is invaluable. Especially if you don’t speak the native tongue. This can include the arrangement of evacuations for medical emergencies, pre-trip assistance, etc.
Coverage for financial default: What if the tour operator for your upcoming family vacation stops answering your calls? And then the line is disconnected and the company is out of business. Travel insurance may be your most reliable means of financial recourse.
