The Importance of Requiring Travel Insurance Information

Travel providers should make sure their travelers are coveredIn any given year, we generally see several costly medical evacuations and numerous hospitalizations of travelers. Unfortunately, we discover that many people travel without the protection of travel insurance. Some are under the assumption that they are covered by their domestic insurance, while others think Medicare will provide for them while they travel abroad. For these reasons alone, it is wise for travel providers to ask for travel insurance information on a Personal Information Form.

You should ask your travelers if they have coverage for medical expense and medical evacuation while traveling outside the country. Ask for specific policy information including contact phone numbers. When you require an answer to the questions, it should result in their having to investigate their coverage  in order to discover if it is adequate. This will help protect them as well as lessen your liability should something go awry on the trip.

Your travelers will naturally look to you for assistance and guidance since they are traveling on a trip sponsored by your organization. The more you can do to be prepared, the better off you and your traveler will be. If you aren't currently requesting this information, it's a good idea to start collecting it.

Most of the time travel insurance is unnecessary, but the cost is justified by the amount for the insurance companies who do have to cover for people who are involved in cross-border incidents.

Round the World Trip

Too many times I hear of people who don't bother with travel insurance, and end up injuring themselves and having to pay a lot of money, often ruining a trip. I always take travel insurance with me, but thankfully have never needed to use it. It may be a costly addition to my trip, but one that I would never travel without. Reading the small print is a must though in every case.
