Travel Insurance

Can anyone suggest a good traveler's insurance? We're taking a two week trip in April to western Europe. We're mainly interested in cancellation/interruption insurance, and health insurance coverage for abroad.

I purchased such trip insurance through We picked an amount that would cover the major items (like airfare and non-refundable deposits -- of which there is only one for our May trip). With some discussion of AIRLINE strikes, it seemed to make sense to insure for peace of mind (and I reread the policy to make sure we'd be covered in those circumstances!)

Hi traveler:
I use CSA Travel Insurance.
I use it for the peace of mind for the "just in cases"
Have a great trip!

Check with your own health insurance carrier before you go buying extra health insurance. You may well be covered. I have been reimbursed many times for overseas health expenses.

before you buy any insurance read the FINE PRINT. you may well discover that what you thought was covered is not. refer to the comsumer union travel letter ofr a more complete discussion of this subject. many policies are a royal rip off. ie some prepaid items like hotel rooms are not covered

We have used several and the best one is CSA Travel Insurance. I had a terrible tooth ache when I was in Turkey and needed root canal work. At first, they wanted me to find a dentist in Turkey, however, when I told them that it's not safe to drink the water and I wanted to go home to see my dentist, they said O.K. Within several weeks, they had reimbursed the cost for the portion of the tour that we missed and they reimbursed me some money for the dental work also!! They also made the arrangements for our return flight home and got us new tickets. No I don't work for them..but it is good for peace of mind. For more information, 1-800 348 9505.
