The Importance of Trip Insurance

There is one question every traveler across the globe universally faces: should I purchase Travel Insurance? It’s natural to ask yourself, should I spend the extra dollars to protect my vacation investment? Or do I leave it in the hands of Lady Luck and hope for the best? At VACAYA, we’ve always believed Trip Insurance is critical to the vacation planning process. That’s why we took special care to integrate the purchase opportunity into our online booking process. Pre-pandemic, the main reason to buy insurance was to assure your safe return home if something were to happen to your health while on vacation. That’s because quality insurance covers medical evacuation so people don’t have to pay medical emergency transportation expenses out of their own pocket.

With Covid-19 in our lives for the foreseeable future, we now have an even stronger rationale for recommending Trip Insurance. “Cancel For Any Reason” insurance has quickly risen in popularity, and for good reason. If you decide you don’t want to travel after the cancellation penalty period has begun, this type of insurance covers a large portion of your cancellation fee. It’s also a great way to help honor your Social Contract with VACAYA.

So go ahead and buy that bucket list trip, but protect your health and your investment by purchasing Trip Insurance. ❤️

A special note to our non-US-based guests: As a US-based company, only US residents can purchase a travel insurance policy from our partner Travel Guard at the end of their VACAYA booking. Insurance is a highly regulated industry, so policies have to be purchased from a provider who is licensed in your country of residence. For our non-US-based guests, a simple Google search for “travel insurance” made while in your home country will bring up multiple options available to you.
