The Essential plan is a good option for travelers who are planning trips on a budget, but don't want to sacrifice coverage. Optional coverages such as Rental Car Collision coverage, Accidental Death 24-Hour and Accidental Death Flight are available. You must purchase the plan within 10 days of your initial trip payment, insure the full pre-paid, non-refundable cost of your trip and meet all eligibility requirements to have Financial Default coverage and the Pre-Existing Conditions Waiver included on your policy.
There are many other valuable coverages included within this plan:
Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption to protect your financial investment
Baggage coverage if your bags are delayed or lost during your trip
Medical coverage for unexpected medical and dental emergencies
Emergency Medical Evacuation if the attending physician recommends that your condition warrants transportation to another hospital.
Assistance services that are available to you 24/7 prior to and during your trip
Because you don't know what kind of unforeseen curve balls life may throw at you, it is best to look into this plan soon after making your initial payment so that you have the most available coverage.
