USA Travel Insurance, the nation's top online travel insurance comparison website, announced today it anticipates record travel insurance sales over the holiday season.

The Air Transport Association (ATA) is forecasting that 21.7 million passengers will travel globally on U.S. airlines during the 2005 Thanksgiving holiday season (Saturday, November 19 through Tuesday, November 29), slightly more than last year's record number. The number of people who purchase travel insurance with their trip has increased 4.6 percent according to USA Travel Insurance.

"People continue to worry about global and domestic issues while traveling," said USA Travel Insurance President Ara Agopian. "Travel Insurance offers them a security blanket before during and after their flight.

Travel insurance usually covers trip cancellations, delays and cancellations due to:

1. Unexpected sickness, injury or death of the insured or a family member

2. A financial default of a tour operator

3. Bad weather or natural disasters that close travel services

4. Other circumstances "which could not have been reasonably foreseen"

"I don't think I'm comfortable traveling without travel insurance." said Heather Paradee who visits her father in Phoenix every year during the holidays. “I like knowing that if something were to go wrong I have a backup plan.

USA Travel Insurance compares major travel insurance product, making it easier to select proper policies.

Agopian said that “We expect holiday sales increase of 5 to 10 percent this year as more travelers become aware of the benefits and protection offered.”
