Are Your Travel Plans In Good Hands?
Look, there's no other way to say it...Don't book a trip without purchasing travel insurance. But, since by law, we can't make our traveler's get travel insurance, the choice is up to you. Simply put, having travel insurance is the ONLY way you can seek compensation of any sort should something interfere with your plans to ride off into the sunset on your newly booked vacation.
Girl Let's Go, LLC is not a travel insurance company therefore we do not issue refunds or compensation in the event something jeopardizes your travel plans, that is what travel insurance companies are for. If you want to protect your investment you must purchase travel protection. And, if you want the widest range of protection available and the ability to CANCEL FOR ANY REASON you must purchase your policy within the specified time-frame of the provider. The longer you wait the less coverage options you have.
Cruisers can opt to purchase their Cruise Lines' Standard Policy. Cruisers and Jetsetters, however, should consider more comprehensive policies and purchase the one that best fits their needs and desired level of coverage. To give you the power to do that, Girl let's Go has partnered with (2) Travel Insurance providers that both allow you to compare policies, prices and coverage with just a few clicks. You may find that you get more form a private provider than the cruise line or jetsetter's standard policy offers.
When fun Goes Wrong...
Here's a Short List of Things that Could Go Wrong
You need to cancel your trip
What happens if someone gets sick and can’t travel, a parent dies, you’re required to work, or your house floods
Purchasing a policy with trip cancellation coverage will enable you to file a claim for covered reasons.
If you purchased CFAR (Cancel for Any Reason) coverage, you can cancel for any reason as long as you purchase it within the specified time of depositing your trip, insure 100% of your trip cost, and cancel within the guidelines of the policy
You miss your connection
You’ve planned a cruise but you discover the connecting flight to get to the ship is delayed or cancelled.
Having a policy that includes missed connection or trip cancellation coverage may grant you with remedies and assistance services to help you arrange and (or) pay for those travel changes.
A hurricane damages your destination
You saved all year for a summer vacation to Aruba, but a hurricane destroys the hotel a week before you depart. Will you lose all the money you worked so hard to save?
A policy with travel insurance protection for weather damage could offer you the an opportunity to recover your pre-paid costs and (or). arrange a vacation at a new location – one the hurricane missed.
A terrorist event occurs
You’ve planned an excursion to Egypt for years, but weeks before leaving a terrorist attack occurs. The airports are closed and Egypt is in chaos. It would be unwise to travel now, but will you lose all your non refundable fees?
A policy that includes terrorism coverage might allow you to cancel your trip without losing all the money you’ve spent.
You get sick or injured on your trip
You and your friends have planned a hiking trip to climb Machu Picchu since college. After your first night in Lima, you wake with severe stomach pains and a high fever. You cannot start your hike. Instead, you need emergency medical care – and quick.
If your policy included travel medical coverage, you may be privy to medical assistance services that aid in locating suitable medical facilities and have help with that huge bill.
Your baggage is delayed or lost
Your special day has finally arrived – a wedding at a beach side resort. Unfortunately, the airline made a mistake and your baggage will be delayed. Luckily you’ve got the dress and the rings, but what about your other clothes, shoes, toothpaste, and personal items?
Acquiring a policy that offers coverage for delayed baggage, or includes lost, stolen or damaged baggage you may be entitled to reimbursement and or replacement options since you can't go around naked until your luggage arrives.
Your passport is lost
You are in London, and you realize you left your passport at a local restaurant.
Your lost passport policy might help with expediting the process of replacing and paying for a new passport.
