Why Does Travel Insurance Matter?
Delayed and canceled flights are common
About 80 percent of domestic flights arrived on time in 2017. Nearly 162,000 flights were delayed, and around 15,000 flights were canceled. Your trip may be interrupted if you are not able to arrive at the destination on time.
All carriers in the travel industry have their own cancellation policies
When you call the tour operator and explain what happened, they’re sympathetic - but it seems likely you’re not getting your money back. Tour operators have their cancellation policies. Most likely you can get no refund if you cancel less than 30 days before departure. Cancel before then, you’ll probably still lose money. Penalties range from the amount of your initial deposit up to 100 percent of what you paid.
It can be really expensive to get emergency medical care or medical evacuation overseas
Most hospitals overseas will not accept your domestic health insurance card, if you’re not prepared to pay all your medical bills out of pocket, you need travel insurance. What happens if you get seriously hurt while traveling overseas and require medical evacuation by helicopter or ambulance? It will cost you roughly $220,000, just the cost of transporting you from Asia to the hospital in the U.S.
The U.S. Department of State says so!
Foreign U.S. embassies can help you replace a stolen passport, contact family or friends in the U.S., find medical care or legal assistance, communicate with local police, and connect you with various resources. but you must pay for your medical care and emergency transportations yourself.
