  • Baggage Delay Coverage Benefit With Overseas Travel Insurance

    Filed Under: Blogging

Reports state the while individuals are purchasing travel insurance policy should necessarily avail coverage for baggage loss. Travelers especially going on an abroad trip is advised to insure their personal baggage and verify with the travel insurance policy document that the insurance also covers any baggage delays that arise during the travel or transit.

Many singe-trip tourist insurance policies do not cover for lost, stolen or delayed personal baggage. This could really be expensive for tourists especially in a foreign land because they need to incur costs for buying clothing, toiletries, any regular medications and other essentials until the baggage reaches in their hands. Clothing can be very expensive in case the individual has been on an overseas trip for business purposes.

In addition, some of the policies offer very minimal coverage for baggage delays which may be inadequate if you are traveling to an expensive destination.

Overseas travelers should know that it is not uncommon for travelers not to receive their baggage immediately while they come out of the flight. There have been cases reported in the past where the luggage has been held up for long hours or has been lost during transit when the passengers change multiple flights to reach the destination.
