Easy to navigate

"I have used Travel Guard for many years and, as a former travel agent, have suggested this company for my clients. Due to the current Pandemic, I did call for one clarification and it was addressed quickly and professionally. I have not had to use the benefit, but I trust I'm covered if I need it."

Testimonials

Claims

Thank you very much for your favorable consideration of our claims.  I was planning on driving my mom back up north to her home today but was delayed due to nasty weather conditions.  Imagine our delight to find our travel refund checks in the mailbox today! This will help fund our return trip to Wisconsin! Thank you again!

Sickness

My wife and I were enjoying a vacation to Barbados when she became ill.  After a couple of trips to the clinic in Barbados we decided to cut our trip short.  Travel Guard took care of everything they said they would in a very timely manner.  I have used Travel Guard many times and I would highly recommend them to everyone!

Bag Trak®

I am flying to a photography workshop in Florence, Italy.  But, during a layover in Amsterdam, I became very ill and had to be taken to a hospital for a week.  My luggage went on to Florence without me and your staff was able to track it down and get it returned to Mobile, AL.

Just another expense, right? Wrong. A travel insurance plan can cover you for unexpected costs incurred before or during your trip so that expenses can be less likely to come out of your own pocket. A travel insurance plan from Travel Guard helps to protect your trip investment with coverages like trip cancellation and interruption, medical expense and evacuation, lost or delayed baggage and more.

 

As a bonus - most travel insurance plans also include 24/7 assistance services to re-book flights and hotels on your behalf and act as a personal travel assistant while you are away from home.

Please be careful when using frequent flyer miles to calculate your trip cost. Travel insurance typically covers the cash value of non-refundable travel expenses. In other words, money you can’t get back from your airline or other travel provider. Frequent flyer miles are not covered as it’s difficult to determine their cash value.

 

Compare Our Plans

Let’s make this easy! Before purchasing, please have the following information handy:

  • Personal information for all travelers who will be on the policy
