5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Travel Insurance

“Today’s post is sponsored by Allianz Travel Insurance through the Bloggy Moms Network.”


When booking a trip, I’m sure you’ve been asked whether or not you want to purchase travel insurance. When I’ve booked trips online or even through a travel agent, I’ve been asked…but never really thought I’d NEED insurance. It’s just an additional expense, right?

Well, not exactly. Travel is an investment and if you have to cancel a trip for an unforeseen circumstance, you are going to wish you had insurance to cover the money you already invested into your trip.

Here are FIVE reasons why you should consider travel insurance when you book a trip:

1. Reimbursement of non-refunded travel payments for any covered reason
2. 24 hour emergency medical referrals and travel assistance
3. Reimbursement of unforeseen travel expenses
4. Protection for medical emergencies
5. Arrangement and payment for emergency medical transportation

That’s where Allianz Global Assistance comes into play. I know there are other options out there when it comes to travel insurance, but I have had good experience with them.

Allianz Global Assistance is a leading travel insurance company that provides travelers with financial protection and 24/7 travel assistance. The company offers Allianz Travel Insurance products that will refund a customer’s pre-paid travel deposits if they have to cancel a trip for a reason covered by their policy. The company’s Travel Assistance team can help travelers with medical emergencies, travel snafus and more. Learn more and find a policy at AllianzTravelInsurance.com.

Allianz Travel Insurance can also help give travelers peace of mind when you are on the road. Say you lose your luggage or you need emergency cash. These are examples of instances when Travel Assistance comes in handy.

The benefits are many and when it comes to travel insurance you are going to hope and pray you don’t need it, but Allianz Global Assistance is there if you need it in case something does happen.

    I would never travel without insurance. I have seen friends lose a lot of money because they did not get it and things happened on their trip.

  • Having a travel insurance is very important. We never travel without it.

  • We have never gotten travel insurance before. Definitely sounds like something to consider for our next travels.

  • We don’t travel ever. But I think if we did it would be a great idea. You just never know so it’s always better to be safe rather than sorry!

    I had a friend that traveled overseas. While he was there he ended up with the flu – needless to say he did not enjoy his trip. He got his money back so he was able to do the trip again when he was feeling better. Travel insurance is a great thing to invest in – especially when it is one of those once in a lifetime trips.

  • I’d like to go on a vacation so I have the option to get the insurance lol. Really, it is a great idea, especially if you are traveling abroad.

  • I’m happy to see this post. I weigh the pros and cons too, when they ask about insurance. There was once when we didn’t have it that I wished we did.

  • Whenever we plan vacations, we make sure we include travel insurance in our list of “must have and must do.” It takes away all the worry and stress and we get to enjoy more of our vacation.

  • I always wonder why they ask if you need a travel insurance when ever you book tickets online. But it great to hear that we have so much benefits out of that small additional investment we do. Would keep in mind during my next trips.

  • I’ve never had travel insurance. I will probably consider it for my larger trips. Thanks for the tips.
