Travel insurance is a good investment because while you can’t do anything to prevent an unexpected storm from closing the airport, an accident, or other unforeseen event that may disrupt your Italy vacation, you can help recover your investment by buying travel insurance.
Travel insurance offers you the best travel protection to cover your Italy trip investment. Policies may cover up to 100% of the non-refundable airfare, non-refundable Mediterranean cruise fare, and non-refundable Italy tour expenses.
A very common question we hear is “do I need to buy travel insurance to cover my Italy vacation?” The answer is there are very good reasons to buy travel insurance when traveling internationally, such as:
- When traveling internationally there could be an airline delay or strike that stops you for a few hours, a day, or a few days. Travel insurance may cover some of the cost of a hotel or other incidentals you need while delayed.
- Baggage & Personal Effects Loss, Baggage delay.
- Missed Connection.
- Medical Expense for illness or accident while traveling
- Your passport and wallet are stolen, and you need emergency cash and a replacement passport.
- You’re involved in an accident and adequate medical treatment is not available. You need medical assistance and emergency assistance. Emergency evacuation.
- You need to cancel your trip due to illness.
- You have a medical emergency in a foreign country.
- An unexpected event forces you to evacuate your resort, hotel or cruise.
- There is a death in your family that causes a trip interruption that causes you to purchase expensive airfare home while the change of existing plans means there are non-refundable payments to be recovered. Or you have to cancel the trip before departure due to a family death.
- Your flight is re-routed and you arrive at airport late missing tour transfer. You need to pay for transfer and then insurance will reimburse you for the cost.
- A storm or other natural disaster strikes causing you to need to cancel your vacation. You need to be reimbursed for the total loss of airfare, tour package costs, hotel nights, etc.
