  • Travel Insurance: Choose Your Flavor Wisely

    Filed Under: Blogging

When you’re traveling abroad, you want to buy your international travel insurance as soon as you purchase your tickets. But there are as many types of international insurance plans as there are places for you to see! How do you choose the right kind of plan for you?

The first step, obviously, is to ask. If you’re purchasing insurance from the Internet, send an e-mail or call the customer service number to ask them exactly what you want to know. This will also be a great first step to evaluating the insurance site itself!

Next, figure out the purpose of your trip, and the kind of traveler you are. If you make several trips a year, annual travel insurance might be the best choice for you. If you are going abroad on a humanitarian mission, missionary travel insurance may be your flavor of insurance.

Third, find out what coverage the selected plans offer, and the rates for each. Remember that you might not need hazardous sports coverage if you’re planning to spend time at a spiritual retreat. Look for the plan that has the benefits you need, not for the plan that has a lot of benefits. Once you compare the coverage and prices, you’re done! Purchasing the insurance should not take more than a few clicks of the mouse!

Travel tip: When purchasing insurance online, use a site that has the comparison feature. It makes the number crunching and comparison so much easier!
