Should I Purchase Travel Insurance? PDF Print E-mail

Probably the most confusing portion of travel planning is deciding if you should purchase travel insurance. Thinking about all of the situations that might occur before or during your trip It is imperative that you protect your investment with some sort of coverage, so you do not lose your money or the enjoyment of a wonderful vacation.

All vacation travel companies have some sort of cancellation penalties if you are forced to cancel after the final payment, varying between 30-75 days before you leave. As you can imagine, lots can happen with you or your family within that 4-10 week period; illness, death, or emergency change of plans to mention a few. How sad, to have fully paid for not only the trip but airline tickets and other pre-paid arrangements and then lose it all!

As many of you know, there are three major ways to see the world; 1) By Boat, 2) On Your Own Land Tour, and 3) On an Escorted Land Tour.  Each of these vacation styles have their own benefits, so take some time to think about what you are looking for in your next vacation and we’ll, of course, work with you to make that dream a reality.

Cruising: Probably the most popular way to travel, large ship cruises cater to travelers who are interested in major ports all over the world.  Larger ship cruises are fantastic ways  to visit an area that you’ve never been to, to decide if there are areas that you’d like to return to.  Plus, you can do it with all the entertainment options that come on a large cruise ship.  If you’ve been there and done that, smaller yacht cruises and river cruises give you the option of more personalized service, smaller ports, and more exclusive experiences, like private wine tastings and tours at local vineyards.
