Travel Insurance: Protection Before and During Your Trip

In more than three decades of helping thousands of people with their travel needs we understand the variety of issues that our clients face when traveling. Whether you take one vacation a year, or travel internationally on a regular basis for your business, a good travel insurance plan will cover you for virtually every unexpected contingency. From travel delays due to bad weather or a missed connection, a lost piece of luggage or a medical emergency in a foreign country, help is only a phone call away when you have insurance protection.

Travelwize offers trip insurance through highly regarded Travelguard. Depending upon your destination, the length of your stay, your travel method, your trip details and more, coverage amounts and pricing vary. For example, the costs of a medical evacuation out of Mexico will be considerably different than the same type of service out of Antarctica. ​
