Travel may be fun but some protection is needed in case of unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. Trip Protection Insurance plans typically reimburse you for pre-paid non-refundable travel expenses if an unexpected crises (e.g., death of a family member, sickness, airline strike, travel supplier bankruptcy, among other crises) occurs before or during your trip causing it to be cancelled, interrupted or delayed.
For that peace of mind before you travel next, get an travel insurance quote and sign up for that protection. It pays to be prepared because you never know what will happen on a trip.
