Losing luggage is certainly not a situation that anyone wants to be in. Especially, if you have meaningful items in your bag, or items that cost a pretty penny. You may have the mindset of “that won’t happen to me, my luggage has never been lost!” Travel Insurance Services advises you to think again, because unfortunately, it can happen.
Anytime you are traveling with items of value to you, the items should be insured. Many times, people are unaware that cruise lines and hotels offer little to no coverage for lost, stolen, or damaged baggage. Most airlines provide only limited protection for checked baggage as well, and do not cover your carry on items.
According to the U.S. Travel Insurance Association, a recent survey showed that people are more likely to buy travel insurance when there are more factors out of their control, such as traveling overseas and needing multiple pieces of luggage. If you have the common mindset of so many others who think they could never lose their luggage, you should begin to view those “what if” traveling circumstances a little different than before. Travel Insurance Services can help mitigate these common travel hiccups, such as losing your luggage. Consider a Travel Insurance Select plan today!
