  • I've never even heard of travel insurance! LOL! And before I moved to Hawaii, I would travel a few times a year!

  • I've NEVER purchased travel insurance... As far as I know, neither as my mother or grandmother - who travel more than I do.

  • Wow!!.... Why?. ...Is it because of the added costs or that you don't think that it's necessary or your credit card covers it?
    We have home insurance, life insurance, health insurance, auto insurance....why not travel insurance? Especially when traveling with/without kids and with all the delays and malfunctions and increased luggage loss.

  • Well I am skimming over it. We do most of our traveling by car/RV. I have an extreme paranoia of flying, so unless I am sipping on juice and vodka, it isn't happening.

    Seems pretty pointless for me to continue reading. Looks like it's very focused on just flights and cruises.

  • I guess I never knew they offered it, lol. But we always drive where ever we go, so why bother?

  • Why indeed!
    You have life insurance, car insurance, etc. Why do you need travel insurance?

  • I think there have been 2 times we have done the insurance. Once was for our honeymoon cruise. The second was a few years ago when the entire family went to Mexico for 10 days. FIL hadn't been in the greatest health and it was the best precaution.
