Whether you travel for business or pleasure travel insurance is a must -- especially when you don't want to lose out on the cost of the trip in the event that the tour provider, hotel, or cruise line goes out of business. Also, if you are too ill to travel before the trip or get sick during the trip, you might appreciate the financial protection. Imagine paying $5,000-$10,000 for your "dream cruise" only to find out when you arrive at the ship that you are not allowed to board, because the company went out of business. That happened to some unexpecting travelers just recently.
We continually shop the marketplace to offer the best plans in one site. Two items we would caution you on. First, do not buy travel insurance from your travel agent. If you actually need to make a claim, you should have an insurance professional helping you. Also, there is a site that offers almost every travel plan out there. The trouble is, you will not know which plans have poor reputations. That is why you do not see those plans here.

- Emergency reunion
- Common carrier accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D)
- Return of mortal remains
- Trip Delay

If you want coverage to cover the costs of the trip, then you can consider travel insurance (which has medical benefits). If you need coverage for an indefinite amount of time, then look at international health insurance. And, if you are mostly concerned with accidental death, then just look at travel life insurance.
