Travel Insurance Works to Protect Families

WARWICK, R.I. -- "There's no place like home for
the holidays," states the ever-popular carol of old. Traditionally each
year at this time, thousands of travelers pack up their families and head
for the best destination of all: the holiday dinner table.
"The challenge can be getting there," comments Peter Evans, Executive
Vice President of "According to the Travel Industry
Association of America (TIA), nearly half of all U.S. family travel
consists of visits to relatives and friends. This means that during the
holiday season especially, the overall number of travelers rises
significantly, and the potential for en route challenges to occur also
increases. At this time of year, it is most important to be an informed
travel consumer and plan ahead with travel insurance."
Travel insurance works to protect families (and your financial
investment) while traveling, in the event that it is delayed, interrupted,
or canceled, and can help you prepare for the unexpected. "Sometimes the
thrill of seeing our loved ones for the holidays is suddenly sidelined by a
case of the flu or other serious ailments," explains Evans. "In fact,
unforeseen illnesses and medical emergencies are the number one reason many
family trips are canceled." That's why a variety of benefits, designed to
address the needs of traveling families, are included on most travel
insurance plans such as:
-- Package Policies
-- Travel Medical Policies
-- Medical Evacuation Policies
-- Flight Accident Policies
Trip cancellation package policies offer the broadest protection with
coverage for trip cancellation, interruption, baggage, travel delay, and
medical and emergency medical evacuation. Travel delay is always at the
forefront of travelers' minds during this period, and these package
policies provide reimbursement for hotel accommodations, meals, and
transportation caused by weather-related delays and cancellations.
So this holiday season, give the whole family a gift and visit for the family friendly coverage that best
