Why buy Travel Insurance?

Credit Card coverage
Know the limitations ...
“I don’t think I need travel insurance;
I’m already covered by my credit card!”


That may be, however when comparing coverage you may be surprised. 

Not sure what you're covered for? Check the extent of insurance coverage on your credit card.
Pay particular attention to the following elements:

Travel duration
Some banking institutions limit the length of stay according to age; which isn't practical for someone spending the winter in the sun…

Emergency Medical Care coverage
Check the eligibility requirements for your credit card coverage. If you have a chronic illness, your condition may have to be stable for more than 6 or 12 months, depending on your age.

Trip Cancellation or Interruption
It's important to verify what the limits are for Trip Cancellation and Interruption. The last thing you would want to find out after saving for a 3 or 4 week trip abroad is that your cancellation coverage is limited to $2,000- and that is under a Gold card coverage...

Baggage
Many credit card plans do not include coverage for Baggage, and if they do, they usually have very low maximums.


Don’t get lost in the fine-print. Travel smart. With Blue Cross, you are sure to benefit from complete coverage, recognized worldwide.

Protect your travel investment. Know exactly what you're covered for, and choose the coverage you need.
