CSA Travel Protection
I'm an insurance broker so the purchase of trip insurance was not an extraneous purchase for me - it was second nature. I am used to comparing policies and premiums - also second nature - and I found that Insuremytrip and CSA provided ease of comparison and pricing, and ease of purchase and of confirmation. Your policy can be delivered by e-mail. Best to purchase at least couple of weeks prior to your departure date.
I returned from Egypt about a month before the revolts happened. I did not need to use the insurance since I apparently planned my trip under a lucky star - but people I know were there when the US was telling travelers to get the heck out of Egypt. If anyone doubts the wisdom of purchasing trip insurance, look at the provisions for "Travel Delay". The affordable plan from CSA that I purchased would have provided protection up to an amount of $1,000 - which I'm sure the folks who eventually were flown to Istanbul (on their own dime) and then left to make further arrangements back to the U.S. would certainly have welcomed.
Enjoy your trip! (And buy the insurance; because, as we all know - stuff happens!)
