The John Hancock Silver plan is the mid-level policy offered by John Hancock Insurance Agency. It may be ideal for families traveling with children, as kids 18 and under are covered at no additional cost as long as one parent is covered under the plan.
Coverage is offered if you have to cancel or interrupt your trip for a typical covered reason which can range from an unforeseen illness, injury or death, to your destination being made uninhabitable by a natural disaster (please see your quoted plan for a full list of covered perils).
The John Hancock Silver plan does offer higher limits of coverage than the Bronze plan for baggage protection, travel delay, medical and emergency medical evacuation. The plan offers the ability to choose the medical limit to allow you to feel more comfortable with your level of coverage while traveling.
If you are concerned about a pre-existing condition causing you to make a claim, this plan offers a pre-existing conditions waiver. You must purchase the plan within 14 days of the initial trip payment and meet all other eligibility requirements to qualify for the waiver.
This plan also includes accidental death coverages as well as an option to add rental car collision coverage. The plan also offers an adventure sport option that would extend medical coverage to a list of sports such as bungee cord jumping, helicopter skiing, spelunking or caving.
Comprehensive travel insurance plans offer the most benefits and optional coverages. These plans provide the best protection for the investment made in a trip.
