FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Although you probably don't want to think about it, travel involves some unique risks. To be sure you're prepared, ask yourself the following questions:
Could I miss my trip and lose my vacation investment too? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. If you have to cancel or postpone that dream vacation, you will probably lose some or all of the money you have pre-paid. You may be able to reschedule the vacation, but will you have the money to pay for it?
Could it cost me extra money if I'm forced to come home early? You bet. There are usually additional costs involved when you unexpectedly have to return home, plus you may not get any money back for the missed portion of your trip.
Should I be concerned about medical insurance when I'm away from home? Definitely. Your medical coverage may be limited away from home, or you may not be covered at all, especially when traveling outside of the country. It's wise to check on this before you travel. Also, how will you find adequate medical facilities when you're traveling? What if you require costly emergency medical evacuation?
Would I benefit from expert help available when I need it? Yes, you probably would. When you're away from home, anything can happen. From a simple case of lost luggage to major medical emergencies, having someone there whenever and wherever you need them can make a huge difference during times of distress.
Benefits and services are described on a general basis. For complete details on policy exclusions and benefits, contact CSA for a sample Description of Coverage or Policy.
