Should You Buy Travel Insurance Or Not?

Insuremytrip compares various travel insurance plans. Note: If you are over 65, definitely use this website as most travel insurance companies don’t serve senior travelers.

World Nomads provides travel insurance and travel safety services worldwide and recommended by Lonely Planet.

AirCare travel insurance from Berkshire Hathaway offers generous compensation for a fixed rate of $25. Delays of two or more hours get you $50; if you miss a connection, there’s a $250 payout. And tarmac delays of more than two hours get you $1,000. (A bag delayed by 12 hours is worth $500.) You can purchase a policy up to 24 hours before departure time and payments are often instantaneous — wired into your bank or PayPal account.

Planning a trip?  RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH.

This website is a compilation of tips from people from all walks of life who love to travel. In the process of planning my own trip, I came across stories of so many adventuresome spirits who started with nothing but a dream to see the world. They were full of wisdom and advice on the many aspects of travel and with reams of inside scoops and tidbits to remember, I decided to set up a website where I can refer to resources I need at my fingertips. I update it frequently as I come across more information.  In time, I hope to be able to add my own insights through the eyes of a boomer traveling solo.
