Customize Travel Insurance to Your Travel Needs

March 6, 2013

A family vacation, trip abroad, or luxury cruise is usually something planned far in advance and anticipated enthusiastically. When such a trip has to be cancelled or cut short, however, the mood can change from excitement to despair. Travel insurance may not cheer you up, but it can make the logistics of cancelled travel easier. APRIL Travel Protection, a leader in travel insurance to Europe for over 25 years, knows how to help.

Frequent Travelers

If you travel more than three times per year, you may benefit from buying an annual multi-trip travel insurance package. European Travel Insurance can be particularly good for those who hop the Atlantic frequently. Multi-trip packages are generally more cost effective than individual plans purchased for each trip, and purchasing one insurance policy to cover you all year is far more convenient when you’re a frequent traveler.

Infrequent Travelers

If you don’t travel often, taking perhaps one trip per year, then you will probably find it most cost effective to purchase a travel insurance policy for each trip. Today you can purchase trip cancellation insurance for any reason, the type of policy that can make things far easier should you have to cancel your trip. Other types of individual trip policies are available, but it’s important that you know which situations and which people are covered.

When Something Happens Before Your Trip

If someone should become ill, or if another situation means cancelling travel, the covered traveler will benefit most from the trip cancellation insurance for any reason that covers the most exhaustive list of possibilities. These policies can be especially useful if one or more travelers are elderly or had past health problems. With this type of policy, your monetary losses can be minimized.

When Problems Arise During Your Trip

If someone is injured or becomes ill while traveling, it’s best if the travel insurance provider can help the covered traveler right then, rather than providing them with a stack of claims forms to deal with upon arriving home. When you have a committed, enthusiastic travel insurer like APRIL Travel Protection, you can make the best of a difficult situation, and you can get help as soon as a problem arises during your travels.
