When Your Final Vacation Price Drops Due to a Sale, Your Travel Insured Trip Insurance Premium May Also Be Lower

Share Article

Travel Insured International, a leader in travel insurance, reminds travelers to ask their travel agent to alert them if a travel price drop entitles them to lower their final vacation payment. Your agent may possibly find that your insurance premium from Travel Insured is also reduced based on the new trip price.

Travel Insured International (http://www.travelinsured.com) wants travelers to take advantage of great travel deals being promoted in the 2009 travel industry. Enjoy discounts on both land and sea travel, and remember to insure each prepaid vacation with a Worldwide Trip Protector plan. Cruise discount offers are widespread during the industry's current "Wave Season." The deals allow travelers, in some cases, to take advantage of free airfares, two-for-one cruise rates, discounted pre- and post-cruise hotel stays, and other budget-friendly deals.

Travelers should ask their travel agent to alert them if a sale price drop can reduce their final vacation cost. These drops may occur after booking and deposit, but prior to final payment. Many travel agents will provide a client alert of a discount to you as a proactive service, demonstrating the travel agent professional you are wise to repay with your repeat business and customer referrals to friends and relatives.

When a price drop is passed back to the traveler with a reduction in the final trip payment, it is possible for the premium to be lower for the insurance plan based on the new, reduced price of the trip. Remind you travel agent to contact Travel Insured's customer service department to check your correct premium reflecting the adjusted vacation price.

Travelers booked with a Worldwide Trip Protector plan, or their travel agent, can contact Travel Insured's customer service department at 1-800-243-3174, or by clicking on the home page Live Chat at http://www.travelinsured.com. If a refund is available due to a reduced premium for the lower vacation cost, a credit can be issued to the customer's credit card account. Please note that an insurance premium reduction may, or may not, occur depending on the amount of the prepaid vacation price reduction.

Obtaining the best coverage for the trip means that travelers should purchase a comprehensive Worldwide Trip Protector or Trip Protector Gold plan with their initial trip deposit or soon thereafter. Waiting to buy a plan more than 14 days following trip deposit will lose the traveler access to great WTP benefits. Lost will be coverage of a pre-existing medical condition for the traveler, travel companion or their family member, as well as the ability to purchase Cancel for Any Reason or Cancel for Work Reasons Options. Delaying a Worldwide Trip Protector purchase also seriously delays Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption coverage for bankruptcy or default, as either of these disruptions must occur more than 14 days following the effective date of the plan for coverage to take effect.
