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.
Is travel insurance worth getting?
Is spending a little over $100 to cover $3,700 worth of pre-paid trip costs worth it? It depends on your comfort for risk. Either way, if you’re traveling outside your health insurance network, you could be considered foolish for not spending the extra 25 bucks to cover yourself for medical emergencies.
What does Trip insurance usually cover?
A typical travel insurance policy will have coverage for a traveler’s main concerns, including trip cancellations, medical emergencies, travel delays, and lost luggage. Most policies are built to be comprehensive to protect travelers from a variety of events that may cause a financial loss before or during their trip.
Can you purchase travel insurance after booking?
You can purchase travel insurance anytime before the date of your departure. If you want a plan that includes valuable trip cancellation and trip interruption benefits, as well as benefits for existing medical conditions, you’ll want to purchase travel insurance as soon as possible after booking.
