When it comes to travel insurance: What
you need to know before you go!
What is travel insurance? Travel insurance can protect
consumers from losing deposits or total costs for a long
planned vacation due to unforeseen circumstances, such as an
accident, or illness that prevents you from taking your
Travel Insurance Tip: Ask
whether you are purchasing travel insurance vs. "trip
protection" or "vacation care", as these may not be
true insurance products. While they may cost less, they may
not cover you as much as true travel insurance. There is
nothing worse that filing a claim and being denied payment.
Many policies contain exclusions for certain kinds of
coverage , so always read the details of the policy,
including the fine print before purchase.
Legitimate travel insurance must be sold by companies with
an insurance license, with the carrier authorized by state
insurance regulators. To verify the license of any company
selling travel insurance company in the State of Florida
call the Department of Financial Services consumer helpline
at 877-693-5236 or visit
For other states contact the
Attorney General office or Department of Consumer Services
where you live.
In Florida, to
verify if the company has the appropriate license or to file
a complaint, call the Department of Business and
Professional Regulation consumer helpline at 850-487-1395 or

you'll ever need when shopping for a cruise. Just a few
