International travel in particular makes a good case for trip insurance. Here are some ways travel insurance can help keep your dream trip from turning into a nightmare:

Last-minute cancellations – Travel insurance can reimburse you for pre-paid, non-refundable trip costs if you have to cancel for a covered reason. This includes flights, lodging and car rentals.

Expenses when stranded – If you experience a covered delay, travel insurance can reimburse you for eligible meals, accommodations and transportation.

Medical emergencies – Unfortunately, getting sick or hurt on vacation happens. Travel insurance can reimburse you for care following a covered medical emergency.

Remember, big trips need big protection. And with customizable plans, travel insurance is more affordable than you think. Contact your Westwood agent to learn more.
