WARWICK, RI, January 20, 2009—Vacations always seem better when there’s a ‘deal’ involved; four nights for the price of three, buy one ticket and a companion flies free, etc. These days especially, a little time, effort, and careful research can earn you a lot more trip for a little less money.  But without travel insurance, even a bargain vacation can quickly go bust.

“In today’s strained economy, there is an extraordinary need for the financial protection that travel insurance provides,” says Jim Grace, President and CEO of “Consumers want to protect the money they’ve invested in their travels from the things that happen so often now such as travel suppliers’ going bankrupt and people losing their jobs.”

The best way to ‘save’ money with travel insurance is to consider what it is you most want to protect against and purchase the policy that best meets your needs. Start by shopping around. Everyone’s travel needs are different, but offers all the leading U.S. travel insurance companies on one site so you can do side-by-side comparisons of policies and prices quickly and easily. Policy prices and coverage vary greatly and it’s important to know that you don’t always have to pay more to get more.

If you want to protect your trip investment then a Trip Cancellation Package Policy is your best choice. Policy premiums range from 4 to 8 percent of your total trip cost, which is a reflection of the breadth of coverage and plan choices available. This wide variety enables you to select the plan that best fits your budget and travel needs. “Travel insurance is your best defense against many of the most common risks affecting travel today,” advises Grace. Factors that determine the cost of travel insurance include the type of insurance coverage you choose, the cost of your trip, your age, the number of travelers in your party, and the length of your trip.
