We’ve probably got the smartest travel insurance team members alive right in this building, but the smartest travelers alive are out there in the world doing just that — traveling. When we had the opportunity to attend a major trade show and hear from those smart, savvy people, we couldn’t resist asking them to record their thoughts for posterity. Now we’re asking everyone else to join us in celebrating the smartest travelers alive by voting for the best tips among those we collected at the New York Times Travel Show.
It’s always a good day in our offices when we can say, definitively, that we’re doing what we set out to do: Give travelers the best customer experience we can provide, so they can confidently navigate the tricky world of travel insurance.

Still, we think this week’s collection of travel news stories boils down to one key takeaway: Things to keep your eye on. Here are the things we’ll be watching for new developments in the near future.
