Travel Insurance: A Good Plan for Any Adventure
Travel insurance is your best friend these days. In a world that has become increasingly unpredictable, travel insurance provides the necessary back-up in the case that things go wrong. Whether it’s the delay of a flight, somebody in the family being restricted from traveling last minute due to COVID or any other situation that inhibits travel, insurance policies are there to provide reassurance.
Picking the right policy depends on a range of factors. We always recommend getting benefits that cover in the case of trip cancellation or disruption – be sure to check that COVID-related issues are included in the benefits! This will give you not only peace of mind, but flexibility in re-booking your trip again when you are able to safely travel. Discover Corps partners with Roam Right insurance, a leading travel insurance carrier that has a range of policies to suit any need.
CDC Traveler Notice Levels
This helpful graphic above provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) helps easily explain what to look for in travel risks. For Level 1, you should still use precautions but travel is basically the same as staying put, with limited risk to the traveler. Level 2 suggests that you should take more precautions while traveling to these destinations but even with the increased risk, traveling should still be fine! Level 3 is when you should possibly reconsider travel.
This guide is made for a quick reference, so be sure to look into the details of the area you’re considering traveling to in order to make the best decision possible.
