Why should I consider travel insurance?

There are several reasons why you might want to consider purchasing travel insurance:

  1. Financial protection: WAS travel insurance can provide coverage for unexpected events that may occur while you are travelling, such as trip cancellations or interruptions, medical emergencies, lost or delayed luggage, and travel accidents.
  2. Cancellation coverage: If you have to cancel your trip due to unforeseen circumstances, such as a medical emergency or a natural disaster, travel insurance can help cover the cost of non-refundable trip expenses.
  3. Medical coverage: If you become ill or injured while travelling and require medical attention, travel insurance can help cover the cost of medical treatment and transportation.
  4. Lost or delayed luggage: If your luggage is lost or delayed, and you’ve chosen luggage cover, travel insurance can provide coverage for the cost of replacing essential items such as toiletries, clothes, and other personal items.
  5. Travel accidents: If you are involved in an accident while travelling, such as a car accident or a slip and fall, travel insurance can provide coverage for medical treatment and other related expenses.
