Travel Insurance Buying Tips

We travel very fragile because it usually means taking the risk of leaving our comfort zone, and travel insurance is the only way to protect yourself from money loss in the event of a problem. So here are some very useful tips to make sure you buy the right travel insurance to protect you from this expected economic loss.

  • The most important point of travel insurance is that you buy the agreement effectively, so always read the fine print, especially the exclusion and general exclusion of coverage. They are written in legal terms, so be sure to clarify anything you don't understand.
  • All insurance companies are classified as financial institutions and are regulated separately by government agencies such as the UK Financial Services Authority. So be sure to check it out.
  • One of the main risks is travel cancellation, so even if you have not traveled for months, be sure to purchase travel insurance immediately after travel confirmation. It won't cost you any more, and once you buy travel insurance, your insurance will begin.
  • View deductibles at any time! Deductibles, also known as excesses, are deducted by insurance companies before payment of compensation. For example, if you make a $300 travel medical claim and the deductible is $150, you only pay $150.
  • Be wary of companies that offer cheap travel insurance premiums, often with high deductibles.
  • Checking children's expenses, because some insurance companies pay only half of the children's payments, which is ridiculous because children's travel costs are almost the same as adults.
  • When purchasing travel insurance, you need to calculate the start date and end date of the trip. For example, if you take off on April 5th and return on April 10th, you will need 6 days instead of 5 days!
  • Don't be attracted by high coverage like 10 million health insurance, it is very unlicensed, you need it. Focus on the actual cover you think you need. For example, if you travel with expensive business equipment, you need to ensure adequate coverage.
  • Check the payment ceiling because insurance companies often have restrictions on maximum spending. For example, personal items may be paid for $5,000, but the maximum payment for each item may be only $1,000. So this may not be enough to cover expensive golf clubs. Most insurance companies will clearly list the expenses, if not, please avoid paying.
  • If you travel a lot, you may want to consider multiple travel travel insurance per year as it saves you time and money. Some insurance companies even invest in free extra services such as ski insurance.
