Travel is a great way to take some much-need time to relax and recharge, but it can also get pretty costly for your clients. According to research conducted by the AARP, cost is the top reason Americans of all ages say they don’t travel more.
For some travelers, when it comes to evaluating the budget for a vacation, travel insurance may seem like an unnecessary expense. After purchasing the plane ticket, booking the hotel, and activities for the trip, how does travel insurance fit into the equation?
Like most things in life, it’s hard to predict if something will unexpectedly disrupt your client’s travel plans. Travel can introduce some unexpected risks that even the most seasoned travelers can’t prepare for. While flights, hotels, and activities can be expensive on their own, if your client finds themselves in a sudden situation that causes them to cut their vacation short, they may end up paying expensive out-of-pocket fees if they aren’t insured.
Whether your clients are dealing with missed layover flight, a car accident, or sudden illness, the right travel insurance can help cushion the financial blow of travel mishaps and help your client travel safely until they return home.
Among the most common covered reasons travel insurance can help your clients save money include:
- Trip Cancellation Protection
- Trip Interruption Protection
- Existing medical condition coverage

Whether your clients are luxury travelers or vacationing on a tight budget, travel insurance can fit into any budget and may actually save them money along the way if things don’t go as planned. Depending on the level of coverage your clients are looking for, travelers can choose from a number of plans that vary in level of cost.
For instance, if your clients are traveling abroad, they may want to consider a more comprehensive plan compared to clients that are only flying a couple of hours away. Ask your clients to consider their investment and level of risk for travel mishaps when they are deciding between plans for travel insurance.
Vacations are supposed to be a relaxing getaway, but it’s not easy to unwind when there’s a possibility of your client’s time and money being upended by an unexpected setback.
