Travel Insurance

Why Buy Travel Insurance?

Even with a buffer day or two built in, you may be delayed. You may need a hotel room, or your luggage may arrive a day after you. Whereas none of these events are ideal, travel insurance will take the sting out of some, or maybe all, of the expense.  Depending on the coverage you choose, travel insurance can pay for unexpected hotel nights, taxis, and clothing replacements.

 

In addition, something may happen between the time you book your Antarctica cruise and when you actually go. You should be booking your cruise at least six months in advance. There’s always the risk you may have to cancel your trip, such as if you or a relative falls sick. Even something relatively minor, like a broken arm, may prevent you from going. Better insure yourself against such eventualities!
