Going home for the holidays? Or a tropical escape? Wherever you’re headed we have you covered!

The holidays are around the corner and if you haven’t planned your next trip already, you’re probably thinking about purchasing tickets, accommodations, and more soon. With a large number of travelers on the road and in the skies, you’ll want to protect your travel investment with the right travel insurance for you.

Remember your trip is unique to you, and even if your travel credit card offers travel insurance, it’s often minimum generic coverage which doesn’t protect much. Credit cards rarely offer Trip Cancellation which is one of the benefits of the comprehensive plans most travelers opt to purchase. Don’t wait until it’s too late to find out you should have elected to purchase more coverage. A stand-alone travel insurance plan like one from TravelInsuranceMaster.com is the best way to find exactly the right plan and benefits to suit your needs. Travel Insurance Master partners with a number of the world’s leading providers to bring a large variety of plans and benefits to one website. This gives you the ability to easily find your recommended plan and value in just a few steps but also compare that plan side by side with similar ones. We do the hard work and research for you, compiling the best plans in our industry and presenting them to you in a clear way so you can make an educated purchase. 

In addition to unique trips, every traveler also has their own individual travel concerns, especially this time of year. You can utilize customizable filters on the Travel Insurance Master website to narrow plans down by specific benefits, and coverage limits if applicable. If you are taking part in riskier than normal activities and winter sports, like skiing or snowboarding, you may want to filter by adventure sports. If you’re worried you could test positive for COVID-19 and have to quarantine, you’ll want to look for Trip Delay coverage. Trip Delay provides coverage for additional hotel expenses and meals if you are delayed due to an event like quarantine required by a physician on your trip. When you’re traveling to a foreign place, you should seriously consider Emergency Medical coverage. It's common to find that your US health insurance plan won’t be accepted in other countries and comprehensive travel insurance can save you from a costly bill and from even paying out of pocket. Always review your specific policy for details and coverages. 

Remember it’s best to purchase travel insurance early in your travel planning process. As soon as you put down your initial trip deposit, start thinking about trip protection. TravelInsuranceMaster.com makes it simple to request a quote even if you haven’t paid for your trip in full yet. You’ll be able to easily shop and compare plans side by side and purchase a plan. Shopping early gives you access to time sensitive benefits like Cancel for Any Reason and the Pre-existing Medical Conditions Waiver many travelers look for. For Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR), you will normally need to buy insurance within 1-21 days of initial deposit, depending on the specific plan. Cancel for Any Reason will allow you to cancel for any reason whatsoever usually up to 2 days prior to departure for a reimbursement up to 75% of your prepaid, non-refundable expenses depending on your specific plan. CFAR does not replace your regular Trip Cancellation benefit, which would cover you 100% for covered reasons, most commonly when you, your family member, or travel companion gets sick. If you or someone you are buying insurance for has a pre-existing health condition, you should seriously consider the likelihood of it flaring up or reoccurring before or during your trip. Could it cancel or interrupt your travels? For plans without the Pre-existing Medical Conditions Waiver, normally a medical condition present prior to your travel insurance policy’s effective date would not be covered.  Most plans have a look back period which means the plan investigates your medical history, anywhere from 2 to 18 months, to check if your condition appeared or was treated during that time. Look for Comprehensive Plans with a Pre-existing Medical Conditions waiver on TravelInsuranceMaster.com. If you didn’t buy your travel insurance early enough, look for a plan with a look-back period that’s shorter than the last time you registered your condition with a doctor.

The holidays can be one of the busiest times of the year! If you purchased travel insurance early on in the planning process and didn’t have a chance to review your policy fully, be sure to take advantage of the Free Look Period. During this time, usually 10 days after purchase depending on your specific plan, you’ll be able to review your policy. Take this time to go over it thoroughly.  If something doesn’t seem like a good fit for your trip, you can cancel, receive a refund, and purchase another plan.

Great tips! Always important to have good travel insurance. Thanks for sharing.
We went back to buying insurance and added a CFAR clause during Covid. There were too many variables. We just got back from Hawaii and we did not buy anything but health insurance. And we almost had to cancel the trip for an injury before we left. It reminded us that insurance is still something we need to take seriously.
I don't think I have ever bought a policy with CFAR, but that does sound really useful, especially now we have so many issues with covid-19! Thanks for the helpful post :)
Thanks for all the advice. I always travel with travel insurance.
I've learned the hard way in the past how important insurance is when traveling..thank you for encouraging others!
I need to look more into travel insurance. You shared some very good points in this article. Thanks!
Thanks for sharing this! I'll have to try out Travel Insurance Master. I just got back from Colombia and wasn't a huge fan of who I used. I'll give these guys a shot on my next trip!
I can't believe the holidays are just around the corner! We usually stay home for the holidays, but if we traveled, getting insurance would definitely be the right move. It's easy for something to go wrong with stormy weather and so many people traveling! Thanks for sharing.
Having had a cruise to Norway canceled due to Covid and then having to make spur of the moments plan for a week, insurance is a great idea to cover your bases.
Travelling with a baby, it's very important that I have insurance! Thank you for sharing this!
