Travel insurance

Travel insurance is generally a good idea with international travel (be sure to also check coverage offered by your credit cards). However, if you’re purchasing it due to concerns related to COVID-19, be sure to read the policy carefully as rules may differ by company. It also may not widely cover cancellation or offer the travel flexibility you’re seeking. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to determine whether you are covered.
