benefits to meet the challenges of travel and help you enjoy a worry-free trip.
Travelex protection plans combine travel insurance with extensive 24-hour emergency assistance services.
Not sure you need travel protection? We have compiled the "Travelex Top 10" to highlight the importance of purchasing a plan before you depart on your trip:
1. "My daughter is too sick to travel"
When you purchase a plan that offers trip cancellation/interruption coverage you may be eligible to cancel your trip for the unforeseen sickness - and be
reimbursed for any non-refundable expenses relating to your trip.
2. "My travel supplier just declared bankruptcy"
Common carriers with financial difficulties are becoming increasingly common. Purchasing trip cancellation/interruption coverage from Travelex can protect you
from losing your trip investment due to such an occurrence.
