What is Travel Insurance?

Travel Insurance can protect against the loss of non-refundable travel costs, such as airfare, hotel and tour expenses. Other types of Travel Insurance offer protection against losses due to medical emergencies, damage to personal property, and even a death, which may occur away from home while on vacation.
