Top Reasons to Purchase Travel Insurance
Making travel plans? There are so many reasons you should purchase a travel insurance policy. 

1. Medical Expenses: One of the most important reasons to have a travel insurance policy is to cover medical expenses. If you fall ill or get injured during your trip, medical bills can quickly add up and become a financial burden. If needed, travel insurance may cover doctor consultations, hospital stays, medication, and emergency medical evacuation expenses.
2. Trip Cancellation or Interruption: Travel plans can sometimes change unexpectedly due to various reasons such as illness, natural disasters, or other unforeseen circumstances. In such cases, having a travel insurance policy can protect you financially by reimbursing the non-refundable expenses you have incurred, such as flight or accommodation costs.
3. Lost or Delayed Baggage: It is not uncommon for luggage to get lost or delayed during air travel. Travel insurance can provide coverage for replacing essential items in your luggage, such as clothing and toiletries, if your bags are lost for an extended period. It can also reimburse you for the cost of purchasing necessary items if your bags are delayed, and you need to buy essentials until they are returned to you.
4. Emergency Assistance: When travelling, you may find yourself in a situation where you need immediate assistance, such as language translation, legal guidance, or emergency cash. Travel insurance can provide 24/7 emergency assistance services to help you navigate through unfamiliar situations and provide support when you need it the most.
5. Personal Liability: Accidents can happen, and if you accidentally cause property damage or injure someone while travelling, you may be held legally liable. Travel insurance can cover the costs associated with legal expenses and any compensation that may be required due to a personal liability claim.

It is important to review the terms and conditions of a travel insurance policy carefully to understand the specific coverage and exclusions before purchasing.
