Protect Travel Costs, Medical Expenses, and your belongings with Travel Insurance

Trip insurance protection is designed to protect you when your travel is cancelled, or interrupted, or when you become ill or have an accident while travelling.  Plans also have coverage for illness or injury during your travels (the plans shown here all cover COVID-19).  But travel insurance has big differences in benefits and the cost of coverage.  Compare plan benefits and pricing to find the right plan for your needs.

Who is eligible to buy iTravelInsured Travel Insurance?

Travel cancellation insurance is for US residents who have paid for travel expenses they want to insure.  The insurance is State based so benefits can differ by State of residence.  The travel can be domestic, international, or by cruise.  Air travel, hotel costs, rental car, cruise costs, and other prepaid expenses are all insurable.  People up to 99 years old are eligible to buy.

Benefits included in Travel Insurance

  • Trip Cancellation Coverage - If you need to cancel your trip for a covered reason the trip cancellation coverage will reimburse you for non-refundable pre-paid trip expenses including air travel, cruise travel, hotel costs and more.  
  • Trip Interruption Expenses - Provides reimbursement for expenses you incur if your trip is interrupted during your travels for covered reasons.  
  • Baggage Delay or Loss - Provides a benefit when your baggage is lost, stolen, or arrives late.

  • Repatriation of Remains - No one wants to think about the risk they could die while travelling, but it's nice to know you have protection if it happens.Trip Insurance covers costs to return your body back home.
