Why Do You Need Travel Protection?

At Global Sun and Fun Travel, we believe that travel protection is a great value and helps protect you  and your  trip  investment!   In today’s changing travel environment,  it’s important to protect your trip investment so you can relax and enjoy your trip. Unforeseen events such as flight delays, baggage loss or even an unexpected sickness or injury could impact your travel plans. Travel Protection plans help provide coverage for Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Emergency Medical and Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, Trip Delay, Baggage Delay and more.

Whether  your destination is domestic or international, we recommend that you consider purchasing travel protection. Consider the unexpected.

  •   * What if you can’ t leave home due to an accident, unforeseen sickness or natural disaster?
  •   * Where would you go if you were injured while traveling in a foreign country?
  •   * What would you do without clothing and medications if your bags were lost?
  •   * What if you miss a connecting flight and become delayed for a long time?

TOP 10 Reasons to Buy Travel Protection

1. My daughter is too sick to travel.                                                                                                                                                                              Most Travelex plans include trip cancellation/interruption coverage which allows you to cancel or interrupt your trip for a covered sickness or injury and         be reimbursed for non-refundable expenses related to your trip, protecting your travel investment.                                                                                                                                                                                  

2. We were traveling when I suddenly developed chest pains.                                                                                                                                    When  a medical emergency happens far away from home, during your covered trip, you want to ensure you receive adequate medical care and                   emergency transportation for you if needed to the nearest facility or back home. Many plans also include pre-existing condition coverage when purchase         requirements are met.

3 . My employer is downsizing – I’m concerned about losing my job.                                                                                                                         Travelex trip cancellation/interruption benefits protect against involuntary employment termination, layoffs and transfers, allowing  you to recover your          trip investment if the unthinkable should happen . You must have been continuously employed with the same  employer for 1 year prior to the                      termination or layoff. Not applicable to temporary employment, independent contractors or self-employed persons.

4.  My Travel supplier just declared bankruptcy.                                                                                                                                                         Common carriers with financial difficulties are becoming increasingly common. Purchasing Travelex travel protection provides cancellation coverage due          to bankruptcy or financial insolvency of your airline, tour operator or cruise line when bankruptcy or financial insolvency occurs more than 14 days                following your effective date of coverage. 

5.  I arrived at my destination but my luggage didn’t.                                                                                                                                                 Whether your bag is lost or merely delayed for 12 hours or more, you can be reimbursed for the  purchase of clothing and personal articles so you can          enjoy your vacation.

6.  We missed our connection because of a delay.                                                                                                                                                       Inclement weather and mechanical difficulties may delay arrivals into a connecting city past the departure of the next flight. If your travel delay is 5              hours or more, you can be reimbursed for the unused portion of your trip and  for additional accommodations and meals.  

7.  A terrorist act has occurred in a city where my flight will be departing.                                                                                                                A terrorist act occurring within 30 days of your scheduled departure date in the departure city or in a city which is a scheduled destination are reasons to        cancel your trip and protect your investment.

8.   I think my son has an ear infection – how do you say ‘ ear infection’ in Italian?                                                                                                    Travelex plans include 24-hour travel assistance & concierge services.* Call toll-free to access our travel assistance company to receive advice or get             contact information for English-speaking doctors in your area.

9.   My wallet – with my credit cards and passport – has been stolen.                                                                                                                         Emergency assistance services* will help you to report your lost documents and make arrangements for an emergency cash transfer should it be                   required.

10.  I won my trip – do you still recommend travel protection?                                                                                                                                           If you’re not concerned with cancelling your trip, select the $0 trip cost level to receive all other base plan benefits including medical expense                       reimbursements during your covered trip, baggage, trip delay coverage and more!
