Hurricane Season Travelers Enjoy Lower Stress Thanks to Worldwide Emergency Assistance Included as Part of their Travel Insured Trip Coverage


East Hartford, CT (Vocus) June 28, 2010

The uncertain track of an Atlantic hurricane will at times cross paths with the most desirable of tropical destinations, normally with vacation-ending results. Whether the experience is Hurricane Charley crossing central Florida in August, 2004, Hurricane Ivan hitting Jamaica in September 2004, Hurricane Wilma overwhelming Cancun in October 2005, or Hurricane Ike striking the Dominican Republic in September 2008, the travel impact of a storm is similar. Vacationers face sudden pressure to rebook early flights home, if available, or to find safer accommodations away from the beach. Those without help sometimes land in public shelters with kindred travelers until the local danger has passed.

Travel Insured International, a leading 3rd-party travel insurer, notes that, in addition to providing Trip Interruption coverage to reimburse unused, nonrefundable trip costs and added airfare home, it provides insured travelers with Worldwide Emergency Travel Assistance available 24/7 anywhere they travel. The Emergency Travel Assistance, accessed by a collect or toll-free call, can help bring a hurricane-disrupted vacation to a less stressful, if abbreviated, conclusion as the better alternative to a nightmare in paradise. The service, delivered by Travel Insureds assistance partner, can provide a variety of travel related help, whether the client is delayed in their home airport trying to get to their vacation spot or stuck in their destination trying to get home. Help is provided for those seeking transportation alternatives or emergency accommodations, especially when the insurance customers own travel agent or supplier is unreachable.

Travel assistance, medical emergency assistance, ID theft assistance and concierge assistance are all included with the Worldwide Trip Protector and Worldwide Trip Protector Gold trip insurance plans. Political evacuation service is included in the Worldwide Trip Protector Gold plan, or as part of an optional medical insurance upgrade in the Worldwide Trip Protector plan. And additional business concierge services are included in Worldwide Trip Protector Gold, and available as part of the optional baggage insurance upgrade in Worldwide Trip Protector. Medical assistance services, including medical evacuation, are included with all Worldwide Trip Protector plan types, including the Trip Protector Lite and Trip Protector Lite Expanded plans.

Medical Assistance and Needed Repatriation

When a domestic or international travel insurance emergency situation involves a travelers accident or sudden illness, Travel Insureds assistance company will first pre-approve medical assistance services and then arrange, as a covered expense, for the insured to be transported to the nearest available medical facility by U.S. standards for treatment. This service includes a hospital admission guarantee. The assistance company can arrange for the insureds dependant child to be flown home with an attendant, if necessary, included in coverage. An adult person chosen by the injured or ill insured may be flown as a covered air expense to their medical bedside. The same service will arrange air transportation of the injured or sick insured back to his or her primary residence within one year of their original return date.

Travel Insured Offers Tips for Affordable Family Holiday Travel: Ship Gifts Free; Avoid Fare Surcharges, Save with “Kids Are Free” Trip Insurance


East Hartford, CT (Vocus) October 21, 2010

Travel Insured International, a leading third-party travel insurer, reminds family budget managers dealing with the challenging economy of 2010 that careful advance planning can make the difference between renewing a family travel tradition during this holiday season or staying home. Whether the preferred family gathering place for a year-end holiday is a relative’s or friend’s home, a festive city hotel, or a family resort, the trip planner who takes calculated steps to avoid overpayment for travel necessities can help make the celebration affordable instead of impossible.

The popular consumer airfare shopping website FareCompare.com publishes valuable advice on when to fly. It includes a dating chart listing surcharges that are built into airfares on different holiday season dates, with the extra costs matched among six competing U.S. carriers. The Fare Compare research reveals that Thanksgiving and Christmas Day have no peak airfare surcharges, unlike most days in the season that carry $ 10 to $ 30 surcharges each way. New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are almost as good, with $ 10 surcharges each day. The most expensive $ 30 per ticket fare surcharges this year are on Nov. 28 and 29, the Sunday and Monday after Thanksgiving; on Thursday, Nov. 23; and on Jan. 2-3, 2011, the Sunday and Monday after New Year’s. There are no fare surcharges for those who can fly prior to Nov. 19, or between Nov. 30 and Dec. 16, or after Jan. 3. Attentive family budget managers will note the potential difference between flying with no surcharges or flying with $ 30 surcharges can be $ 60 per roundtrip ticket per family member.

Families can save additional costs on their outbound flights to the holiday gathering by purchasing gifts through the numerous online shopping services that will ship gifts ahead for free. Combined with organized packing to limit members to one carry-on bag each, families can avoid airline baggage fees ranging from $ 15 to $ 20 to $ 25 for their first checked bag, and more for a second or third bag. Several travel sites publish baggage fee charts for domestic and international airlines that are easy to find. At least one popular domestic airline advertises its bags fly free policy, a best opportunity for avoiding this travel cost.

Kids Are Free

When saving money by planning ahead on family holiday travel, a prudent parent will seek to protect the family’s travel budget against Trip Cancellation or Trip Delay caused by unforeseen disruptions. For most families a sudden childhood illness, or one unwelcome winter storm can be enough to either force a holiday trip cancellation or cause lengthy delays and unforeseen expenses for food and lodging.

The affordable way to avoid both disappointment and lost prepaid trip costs is one of three types of Worldwide Trip Protector Plans from Travel Insured that include Kids Are Free coverage for one or more children under 18 traveling with their related adult. Families on the Worldwide Trip Protector comprehensive plan receive free coverage for all kids under 18 insured with their primary adult. Families on the budget-priced Trip Protector Lite or Trip Protector Lite Expanded plan receive free coverage for one child under 18 for each related adult enrolled on the plan and traveling with the child. All three types of plans include Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Trip Delay, Baggage Loss and Delay, among other coverage. Common Carrier Accident insurance, Renter’s Collision Insurance, and even Sports Coverage to protect against ski equipment delays or contact sports injuries are available options in all three plans.

Keeping the family’s holiday travel celebration on the calendar in a struggling 2010 economy is still affordable with some educated advance travel planning. Don’t forget to protect prepaid family plans, however, so that if the worst happens the celebration can still be rescheduled when the holidays are over.

Travel Insured Includes School Year Extension Coverage to Protect Prepaid Vacations When Snow Makeup Days Conflict With Travel Dates


East Hartford, CT (Vocus/PRWEB) February 02, 2011

School closings due to winter snow and ice storms will make children cheer, but too many days of sleigh riding and hot cocoa can lead to vacation hangovers since school-mandated makeup days may soon conflict with prepaid vacation dates. When school vacation days are rescheduled as makeup days on the academic calendar the cheering for students has ended and a problem for parents may be created.

Travel Insured Urges Families to Exercise Options to Costly Drive Vacations with Airfare Sales, Free Child Seat Check-ins and Kids Free Trip Insurance


East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) June 15, 2011

The flying family vacation with young children is alive this summer as an alternative to high gas prices for tiring, lengthy car trips. Parents can find airfare sales extending through the high travel season in a slumbering economy. Family travel planners should visit online fare tracking sites, such as Airfarewatchdog and SmarterTravel, to find recurring summer airfare deals from competing carriers with sale names such as “Cheeps,” “Click ‘n Save” “The Sand in Your Suit Sale,” and others offering limited-time booking deals for 2011 summer and fall travel. Registering for fare alerts allows you to receive automatic email notices for your desired destination as each fare sale becomes available.

Parents planning to rent a car can save money and hassles by bringing child car seats and non-bulky strollers on flights without paying baggage fees for child items on most airlines. Some carriers allow seats to be carried on for children to use during flights. Others allow items, if not bulky, to be gate checked after being used to reach boarding gate waiting areas. Parents also skip the cost of renting a child car seat from a rental car company in their destination at prices of about $ 10 to $ 15 per seat per day.
