Afraid of getting sick in a foreign country and not having health insurance to cover those hefty hospital bills? Fear no more, there are a slew of travel insurance plans available today that cover everything from sickness in a foreign country, to missed flights and lost baggage. GoNOMAD.com writer Michael Di Natale, discusses different plans in his article, Hurricanes and Travel Insurance: What Travelers ought to Know.
“The right policy can save the day when it seems as if everything is going down the tubes by providing protection in the case of almost any emergency. As an extreme example, some plans will allow for insured travelers to return home if disaster strikes at home while they are away.
In the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the disaster they wreaked on the gulf coast, it is important for people to know and understand what kind of protection is available to them in such situations so that if these situations come up, they can be prepared. When a storm is approaching there are many ways a traveler can rely on insurance, beginning with the early stages of the storm and following through afterward.
Travel insurance covers more than weather events. All emergencies and unforeseen events can be covered by a proper plan, giving you the piece of mind you need to truly relax and enjoy your vacation.”
