Travel insurance…yes or no?

Travel insurance is something that no one thinks they need….until you do. We learned this for the first time this spring when our trip plans to travel to Philadelphia were put on hold.

One of our threegirlstravel had unexpected surgery which required us to cancel our trip to Philly and that’s when we learned that travel insurance might have been a good thing. The unexpected happened past the date of our grace period for cancellation with a full refund. With travel insurance of $79.00 at the time of booking we could have avoided a costly lesson. We have since learned some credit cards cover unexpected cancellations but not everyone has those particular cards. Airlines generally are more forgiving and allow a credit for future trips so it is not a total loss. But the one thing threegirlstravel learned from this is the small fee for travel insurance when needed is worth every cent you pay.

In our two years of adventures threegirlstravel has learned a lot about blogging, booking, reading fine print on contracts and now the importance of travel insurance. So, these three girls will leave the headaches behind and always carry travel insurance.

Happy travels….
