| Travel Protection Tips for Memorial Weekend Trips |

Memorial Day Weekend is just around the corner, prompting many to box up winter clothes in preparation for warmer weather. The long weekend affords the opportunity to skip town in search of an adventure, whether driving or flying, domestic or international. As one of the busy travel weekends of the year, TripAssure is offering travel protection tips for protecting Memorial Day trips.


Consider Your Trip Costs

TripAssure plans offer Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption coverage benefits to protect the pre-paid and non-refundable costs of your trip. When creating a quote online, you are able to enter the dollar amount you wish to protect. This can include flights, lodging, excursions or other trip expenses, even if each was booked independently. For travelers who are not flying, or have minimal trip expenses, consider the option of insuring zero dollars for trip cost. This removes the cancellation coverage benefits, and keeps the cost of the plan low. Most important is to have a plan that fits your needs, so please contact TripAssure and we will be happy to help find that fit.


How Much Medical Is Enough?

TripAssure offers three plans: Asset, Bridge and Complete. The most notable distinction between the three is that the dollar amount of the Emergency Medical coverage benefit is different for each plan. This could be an important consideration for travelers not sojourning far from home, and could be staying within their health insurance network. Conversely, traveling out of network could mean having higher Emergency Medical limits with TripAssure is more valuable.


Last Minute Trips Can Be Protected Too

Some Memorial Day travel plans aren’t decided until the last minute. That’s ok, TripAssure is here to help protect those travel plans too. TripAssure plans are able to be purchased as early as when you book, or as late as the day before departure. As mentioned above, a last minute travel planner may consider insuring a zero dollar trip cost, since it is almost time for the trip. Even a last minute plan with a zero dollar trip cost can still protect for: medical emergencies, evacuation, baggage loss or delay, missed connections, etc. Please compare our plans for more details.
