Advantages and disadvantages of travel insurance. What are they and how can you easily compare travel insurance plans?
Whether it’s lost luggage or a missed flight, unexpected events can happen on a trip and it’s always good to plan ahead.
In this feature, we’ll cover the main advantages and disadvantages of the best travel insurance plans.
There are a number of advantages for having travel insurance while on holiday. Here are just some of the main benefits:
The disadvantages of travel insurance often involve what isn’t covered in a travel insurance policy. While the best travel insurance plans are already very comprehensive, they don’t cover every single part of your holiday.
Some examples of what isn’t covered by insurance include reckless behaviour and change of mind resulting in a loss.
We have a dedicated article about what is not covered in travel insurance that offers important tips on what to look for in a policy.
Another disadvantage of travel insurance can be unexpected costs.
Travel insurance quotes are determined by a number of factors such as the location of the holiday, an age of the traveller, and the duration of the journey.
Trips that are long can end up being very expensive to cover.
If you have already spent thousands of dollars on a trip, a few hundred dollars more toward travel insurance can be discouraging.
Nonetheless, travel insurance is always recommended for any trip that you go on and provides crucial support in the event of an unexpected emergency.
Compare travel insurance quotes so that you can find an excellent deal that doesn’t break the bank.

Easy site to navigate. Gave me great options that suit my household including reputable providers I wasn't familiar with.
I’ve just had a great experience with Kurt from glimp compare. He helped me through the process from the time I clicked onto the website, via the chat function. Long story short I have signed up to a new power and broadband provider with significant cost savings. There was no pressure at any stage, just respectful guidance and facilitation to initiate the new supply.
Good options, but ideally an option to combine & compare cost for best mobile + broadband option would be nice.
