Travel insurance. It’s an easy topic for many travelers to ignore. But just like packing an extra pair of socks, it’s a decision that could end up making a potentially bad situation a whole lot better. And for that, your clients will thank you. Here’s why.
Covering Emergency Medical Expenses
This is the number-one reason people buy travel insurance, and for good reason. Even a little flu bug could end up costing your client big bucks—particularly in a foreign country. ExactCare from Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection (BHTP) pays up to $25,000 for medical issues and $500 for dental. And if your customers buy ExactCare within 15 days of their initial trip deposit, BHTP will even cover many pre-existing conditions.
Getting Back Home
There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re stranded—especially in an unfamiliar place. That’s why travelers need coverage that will arrange and pay for getting them back home for medical treatment. ExactCare has up to $500,000 in emergency-evacuation coverage, so your clients can rest assured they’ll never be too far from home, no matter how much distance they’ve covered.
Covering Trip Cancellations and Interruptions
Picture this: the sun is shining, waves crashing, and all of sudden…jury duty. Without travel insurance, your clients would run the risk of not only forfeiting their dream beach vacation—they’d be forfeiting the money they spent to get there. Most airlines and hotels won’t reimburse for a cancelled trip. ExactCare will—up to $100,000 for trip cancellation and $150,000 for trip interruption, not to mention the optional “cancel for any reason” coverage.
Protecting Travelers’ Flights
Sure, in the grand scheme of things, a missed connection or delayed flight isn’t a big deal. But that doesn’t make it any less excruciating. Luckily for your clients, ExactCare, along with AirCare, pays for a wide range of flight mishaps. It almost makes them worth celebrating… almost.
Many times, the decision to purchase travel insurance comes down to determining “could this happen to me?” So what are the chances your client could suffer lost luggage? Let’s just say this: Airlines and hotels lose around 1.8 million bags a year. ExactCare will pay up to $1,000 for luggage and contents (receipts required for maximum reimbursement) and AirCare pays a fixed amount up to $1,000 (no receipts required).
