The Atlas Expedition plan is a great option if you are looking for primary coverage while not breaking the bank. For example, in the event you have a covered medical issue while traveling, you can file the claim with this company, rather than having to go through your regular health insurance first.
This plan offers a number of covered reasons that allow you to cancel your trip and receive reimbursement of your insured prepaid, non-refundable trip cost. There are the general covered reasons, such as unforeseen illness, injury or death of you, a traveling companion or family member. This plan also includes unique covered perils such as the CDC issuing a warning not to travel to your destination during the time of your trip. Not ordinarily seen on other plans, but included in this one, is coverage if your arrival is delayed due to a covered reason that causes you to lose more than 50% of your trip. These covered reasons under trip cancellation are available to residents of most states.
Along with trip cancellation, the plans offers many other useful benefits. Trip Interruption offers an additional 50% on top of your covered trip cost which could help to defray additional costs in the event you have to end your trip early, for a covered reason, and get an emergency flight back home. Baggage delay benefits allow reimbursement for necessities purchased when your luggage is delayed by a common carrier for more than 12 hours. Baggage loss, travel medical, emergency medical evacuation, and optional rental car coverage could also come in handy during your travels.
Whether it is a once in a lifetime trip or travels to visit family several states away, it is always a good idea to invest in travel insurance. Insurance can’t stop the unexpected from happening, but it does allow you the peace of mind, knowing that you don’t have to worry about losing your entire investment in the event the unexpected happens.
