Common Travel Insurance Misconceptions:

Health Care insurance

This is perhaps the most confusing area. Most people think they are covered if they already have existing health care insurance. Within the United States, that’s true. Outside the U.S., however, is a big IF. And in some cases, your insurance won't even cover you if you're traveling on a foreign-flagged vessel. This is a huge red flag, since most cruise ships, even those cruising U.S. waters, are not flagged in the U.S.

And in many cases, even if you are covered for basic emergency care overseas (again, a big IF), in almost all cases, your current health insurance does NOT cover you to evacuate you and repatriate you back to the U.S. This is where "Medical Evacuation and Repatriation" insurance comes into play. Also, if you’re in a foreign country, particularly a developing country, many hospitals will admit you without caring about coverage, but they won’t let you leave until you pay. Travel insurance can help facilitate payment, and act as an advocate so that you’re not overcharged because you’re an American. It is essential for anyone who travels.

Trip Cancellation and Interruption insurance

Nobody ever plans on having an accident, or getting sick, but if you or your traveling companion get sick and you miss your trip, you could lose up to 100% of the cost of your trip. Most Tour companies and Cruise Lines DO NOT waive penalties or extend future credit for cancellations due to death or illness. If you purchased Trip Cancellation and Interruption insurance you would apply for your refund through the insurance company.

Credit Card Coverage

If you book your trip on a credit card, you may think you are already covered trip cancellations and health care during your trip. But more often than not, your basic credit card coverage will be limited to flight accident insurance, rental car insurance or limited baggage insurance. Be sure to read your card's terms and conditions, or call your credit card provider's toll-free line for guidance.
