How do I choose travel insurance?
Travel insurance: 10 tips on finding the best deals
- Never buy from a travel agent, tour operator or airline.
- Decide on the cover you need before finding deals on comparison sites.
- Be sensible about the excess.
- Check what is already covered by your home insurance policy or bank.
- Choose annual cover if you travel more than three times a year.
How much does travel insurance cost?
In general, you should expect a plan will cost anywhere from 4%-10% of your total pre-paid, nonrefundable trip cost. For example, if you purchased a trip with a total cost of $5,000, travel insurance policies available to you will likely range in price from $250-$500, depending on variables.
When should you buy travel insurance?
WHEN SHOULD I BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE? The best time to buy travel insurance is within 15 days of making the first deposit on your trip, since buying early can often qualify you for bonus coverages. However, many plans let you buy coverage up until the day before you leave.
