Research by travel insurance comparison site TravelInsurance.com has advised consumers that they can significantly expand their options, in terms of benefits and price, with a quick online comparison. According to the site, many policies cost less than what’s available on the major travel booking sites.
“A couple of minutes of research can not only save money but also provide thousands of dollars more in coverage as well as coverage that’s not otherwise available,” said Stan Sandberg, co-founder of the site.
Co-founder Drew Sharma added that a holiday can be such a major expenditure that the relatively small addition of travel insurance to trip budget is well worth it in terms of the peace of mind it gives travellers.
According to TravelInsurance.com, almost every policy the site offers includes higher coverage limits or benefits not typically available from the basic policies from online travel sites.
