Travel Horror Stories

Just like you, I’ve heard lots of travel stories and may of them turn out to be nightmares. Luggage lost or stolen, bookings handled improperly, hotel rooms broken into and rental car accidents. With so may potential bad outcomes, it’s so exciting to hear about the few good stories that happen from time to time. When you are traveling internationally to a foreign country, travel insurance increases in importance, but many people forget about domestic travel insurance as well. You need basic travel insurance whenever you are taking a trip, and you need to get it every time you leave on a trip or vacation.

Travel Insurance Tips:

  • Check with your homeowners insurance agency or agent and find out what coverage you already have that is included with your home owners insurance policy.
  • Call AAA and see what may be included in your membership with AAA – they often have standard inclusions in your membership that you may not be aware of, or are not taking advantage of. You’re already paying for it, so use it!
  • Check your rates – once you find a good agency to acquire your travel insurance from, then you need to check their rates every year or 2. Especially if you are a frequent traveler and don’t have any incidents, you should be eligible for discounts.

Share Your travel Stories

We enjoy telling about our travels and travel insurance is something that is not often talked about. We assume that people know about it, have it, or just don’t want to talk about that side of things, because we don’t want to scare them right before they leave on a trip of their own. But that is not what they need. They need real sound advice coming from your experiences. Share the bad thins that have happened, but add the happy ending that comes from having proper travel insurance and you will be being a true friend that will save your friends from much grief and pain, or at minimum make the pain of a bad experience easier to bear.
