Why do I need travel insurance?
At Travel Guard we understand that your vacation can take a year to save for, but only a second to ruin. While you can’t do anything to prevent an unexpected storm from closing the airport, you can do something to help cover your investment – buy travel insurance.

Top 5 Reasons to Purchase Travel Insurance – There are hundreds of circumstances that could cause you to cancel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling. To demonstrate the importance of purchasing travel insurance, and emergency travel services, here are 5 common examples of what could go wrong.

    1. It’s 10PM and your family arrives at the airport for a connecting flight, only to find that your flight has been cancelled. Who can assist you with finding new flights to get everyone home?
    2. Your luggage with your prescription and wallet are lost. Who do you call for emergency cash, who will pay to replace your luggage or purchase necessities while you wait for your luggage?
    3. You’re involved in an accident and adequate medical treatment is not available. Who will help arrange and pay for a medical evacuation?
    4. If your sister-in-law becomes seriously ill and you must cancel your trip, what happens to your non-refundable deposits or pre-payments?
    5. You planned a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and the winter storms are approaching – See below:

Questions about Winter Storms & Travel Insurance?
If my airport is closed due to a severe winter storm, and my vacation is delayed, can I be reimbursed?

The Answer – 
Yes!
How can travel insurance cover my vacation investment in the event of severe winter weather?

In the event of cancellation or delay of travel at your point of departure, travel insurance provides coverage under the Trip Cancellation and Interruption benefit. If your trip is cancelled for a covered reason, we will refund the pre-paid, forfeited, non-refundable trip costs trip up to the limit of coverage.
How else can travel insurance help me when my flight is cancelled or delayed due to winter storms?

Most insurance plans available through Travel Guard come with valuable assistance services. This means if your flight is delayed or cancelled due to severe winter weather, we will work with the airlines on your behalf to book a new flight and get you where you need to be. If a severe winter weather warning or watch is issued that may impact my travel plans, up to what point can I still purchase travel insurance?
Insurance must be purchased 24 hours prior to when the severe winter storm warning or watch is issued. Once the severe winter weather warning or watch has been forecast, Trip Cancellation and Interruption losses resulting from the winter storm are excluded from the coverage of the policy.
