  • This Holiday, Ask Santa for the Best Travel Insurance!

    Filed Under: Blogging

The holidays are here, and it’s the perfect time to travel for students—long vacations, cold weather, and the spirit of the holidays are all enough reasons to travel—with student travel insurance, of course!

Why is travel insurance even necessary for the penny-pinching student? Because travel insurance can, for less than the cost of a cup of coffee, ensure that travel does not turn into a sour experience that empties out the already thin pockets of the student.

When purchasing student travel insurance, some of the benefits to look for include benefits such as emergency care, ambulance services, emergency medical evacuation, and accidental death and dismemberment. And remember that you might want to purchase hazardous sports coverage if you plan on participating in adventurous sports, or even if you are not sure.

As far as trip cancellation benefits go, read the fine print to know the covered reasons for cancellation. Also remember that if you will primarily be backpacking and will be staying at hostel, you might not require trip cancellation benefits.

Travel tip: Remember that the cost of your student travel insurance should roughly be around 8% of your trip cost. If it’s much higher than that, you might want to look for alternate insurance.
