Olivia recommends that you purchase a travel protection plan to protect yourself and your trip investment. Now more than ever it’s important to think about the unexpected. It is best to purchase the travel protection within 15 days of your initial trip deposit date to be eligible for certain coverages, but it is never too late. Consider travel protection for Trip Cancellation/Trip Interruption, Emergency Medical and Emergency Evacuation, Trip Delay, Baggage Delay and more. Click here for a few reasons why it is a great idea to consider travel insurance.
For a travel insurance quote, more information or to purchase a protection plan, please call Olivia at 800-631-6277 (U.S. residents only) and select option 1 for a travel consultant.
