Travel Protection: It's About Your Investment


You are making a substantial investment in your upcoming trip.

Many expect a trip to proceed as planned, and usually they do.  But that's not always the case.  I speak from experience--a flight to Rome to catch a cruise was interrupted by eruption of a volcano in Iceland.  Instead of a 3-hour layover at Heathrow, I had a six-night layover and missed the cruise.

Fortunately I had travel protection insurance.  I got my pre-paid costs refunded (i.e. the cruise) and London hotel covered.  I've been a believer ever since.

Beadventures highly recommends that you purchase a travel protection plan.  Beadventure travelers have had excellent customer service, when needed, from Travelex Insurance Services. 

For information on the available plans from Travelex, click here or contact them at 800-228-9792 and reference location number 02-0040. 

Of note for some of our travelers is a concern that they might have to cancel due to a “pre-existing condition.”  To have your travel protection provide coverage if you have to cancel due to a pre-existing condition, you need to purchase it soon after making a deposit.  With Travelex, to be eligible for a waiver of pre-existing medical condition exclusion, the protection plan must be purchased within 15 days (Travel Basic) or 21 days (Travel Select) from the time you make your initial trip deposit. However, a plan can be purchased any time prior to departure (you just won’t have this exclusion).

You can, of course, purchase travel protection from any insurer of your choice.
