Our summer started off great. I have a family who loves to travel and I saved up to take the whole family on a trip to Key West, Florida.
We had a fabulous time.
About a day after we got home, we found out my son had a collapsed lung. It was a strange thing, since he runs cross country and was otherwise healthy. He spent the rest of the summer in the hospital, recovering, getting surgery and recovering again. I don’t tell this to be shocking, though it was truly shocking to us. I share it because if it had happened one week earlier and I had not had travel insurance, not only would I have had the worry from my child being ill but I would have been dealing with all that comes with being sick away from home as well as being out the money I’d saved for pre-paid and non-refundable trip expenses. That may seem like the last thing that you’d be thinking about but when you’ve got an emergency, you need your money and as few other worries as possible. You know what I mean? That’s why I always buy travel insurance. It’s one less thing that I have to worry about. If you’re planning a trip consider using Allianz Global Assistance. They are a leading travel insurance company that provides travelers with financial protection and 24/7/365 travel assistance around the world, which is awesome because if you love to travel like I do, you never know where you might take off to next. 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. Plus, their Travel Assistance team can help travelers with medical emergencies, travel snafus and more.
Now that my son is getting better, I’m planning another trip for us. I feel the call of large scale amusement parks and some happy vacationing with the people I love. Where are you going next? What do you think about adding travel insurance to your trip?
