Travel tips: On travel insurance

Are you covered with travel insurance? In fact, it is rational to get insurance done while you are traveling. It is always advisable to buy the insurance policy to compensate any mishaps that might occur while you are traveling. There are many types of travel insurance and many different insurance companies are offering travel insurance.

Insurance in its basic form is defined as “A contract between two parties whereby one party called insurer undertakes in exchange for a fixed sum called premiums, to pay the other party called insured a fixed amount of money on the happening of a certain event.” In simple terms it is a contract between the person who buys insurance and an insurance company who sold the Policy. By entering into contract the insurance company agrees to pay the policy holder or his family members a predetermined sum of money in case of any unfortunate event for a predetermined fixed sum payable which is in normal term called Insurance Premiums. Travel Insurance is insurance that is intended to cover medical expenses and financial and other losses incurred while traveling, either within one’s own country, or internationally.

Temporary travel insurance can usually be arranged at the time of the booking of a trip to cover exactly the duration of that trip, or a more extensive, continuous insurance can be purchased from travel insurance companies, travel agents or directly from travel suppliers such as cruise lines or tour operators. Travel insurance often offers coverage for a variety of travelers. Student travel, business travel, leisure travel, adventure travel, cruise travel, and international travel are all various options that can be insured. The most common risks that are covered by travel insurance are Medical expenses, Emergency evacuation, Trip cancellation, Accidental death, injury or disablement benefit, overseas funeral expenses, Curtailment, Delayed departure, Loss, theft or damage to personal possessions, Delayed baggage, Legal assistance, Personal liability and rental car damage.
