The recent volcanic eruption in Iceland and the resulting closure of airports across Europe seriously affected travelers throughout the region and beyond. This situation underscores the importance for every traveler to purchase travel insurance in case of unexpected events.
At The Travel Center / American Express, we understand the possibility of having to cancel a vacation, getting sick overseas, or arriving at your destination minus your luggage are all unpleasant ideas you’d rather not think about. But your peace of mind is the reason we think about it for you and offer a variety of insurance options — so that regardless of what type of situation occurs, you can rest assured you will be in good hands.**
Access America, The Travel Center’s preferred insurance provider, has a variety of insurance plans to suit most any traveler’s needs. Many of the plans include benefits like:
-Trip Cancellation / Interruption
-Emergency Medical / Dental coverage
-Emergency Medical Transportation
-Baggage Loss / Damage
-Rental car protection
You might not realize:
*Medicare, for the most part, doesn’t provide coverage outside the United States or on a cruise ship.
*Airline revision fees are so high; many times, the cost of insurance may be less than paying a change fee.
*Insurance through a cruise line or tour operator may not cover you for flight delays or cancellations if your air tickets were purchased separately.
*Worried you might have to work? Access America now offers BizPack Extended Coverage which enhances Trip Cancellation coverage by adding work-related covered reasons.
*American Express Vacations’ Cancel for Any Reason Protection Plan allows you to cancel your trip for any reason prior to the flight departure time.
