Two days before a big trip to Shanghai, one of our guests was diagnosed with cancer. The news was devastating and they had to decide whether to continue with their travel plans. Being an expensive trip, the loss of that investment weighed heavily in the decision making process. Thankfully, this guest had purchased travel insurance and was assured they did not have to jeopardize their health by delaying treatment or taking the trip. They were covered.
That is an actual story of how travel insurance helped protect against an unexpected illness. While you hopefully will not be diagnosed with cancer just before your trip, a more likely event is missing a flight due to delays on the way to the airport or coming down with the flu just before a trip. Most airlines charge hefty fees for changing your flight on a regular ticket. Travel insurance can ease the financial burden of the fine print on your carriage contract with the airline.
At Favorite Hotels Collection, we've partnered with Allianz Travel Insurance to offer our guests piece of mind during their travels. Whether going on a once in a lifetime adventure, your semi-annual cruise, or flying regularly for business, they have travel insurance programs that fit a range of traveler profiles.
