"Nearly three-quarters (72%) of respondents say they are checking Covid case numbers or infection rates for their destinations before they travel."

Cancel for any reason travel insurance is still your best bet. If you're afraid to travel because of infection rates at your destination, then you'll want the ability to cancel—no questions asked.

What to know about CFAR:
- Buy your plan within 21 days of your first trip deposit
- Cancel 48 hours or more before scheduled departure
- Some plans require that you cover the full cost of your trip, so be sure to have accurate totals of any prepaid expenses when you buy.

"But Gonsenhauser doesn’t think testing does much to change traveler behavior. He has seen examples of people testing positive, or knowing they have been exposed to coronavirus, who refuse to quarantine. If you test positive and don’t do anything about it, testing seems irrelevant."

We have to do better in the travel community. Many popular tourist destinations still don't have vaccine access, and we have to consider those around us. Let's get tested, quarantine if you're sick, and care for one another through these hard times.

"I learned a long time ago that trying to micromanage the perfect vacation is always a disaster. That leads to terrible times." —Anthony Bourdain

Bourdain's birthday was last month, and it's hard not to reflect on how he impacted us as travelers at G1G.

When you think of the insurance industry, you might think of a group of neurotic people planning for all of the crazy what-ifs. And you're not totally wrong.

But we're so much more than that. We've lived the what-ifs as travelers ourselves, and we know that there are just too many elements to control when it comes to travel.

It's why we believe in backup plans. It's why we believe in what we do.

We bring travel insurance to others so they can loosen their grip on things they can't control. Our products are meant to be your backup plan so that you have a team of experts at your side when push comes to shove.

We want you to #EnjoyTheJourney, because you deserve it. After all, it's the journey that makes us. If you're too busy worrying about what you'll do when things go wrong, then you're not getting the most out of our trip. You aren't being the best version of yourself.

So, take Papa Bourdain's advice. Don't try to micromanage. But take our advice, too, and think about your backup plan.
This is awful news, and we hate to hear it.

Travel insurance wouldn't have been able to help much in this situation either, because a cruise line turning you away at boarding isn't a covered reason for cancellation.

Additionally, if they had cancel for any reason, they would have had to cancel their trip 48 hours or more before departure—which is when the cruise line asked them to get tested. There wasn't much time.

We recommend opting for a Covid test even if you don't think it's required to prevent these kinds of things from happening. If you DO test positive and have travel insurance that covers cancellations due to sickness, you'd get 100% of your lost money back—definitely something to think about.

Photos from G1G Travel & Visitors Insurance's post 07/30/2021

Let’s talk pre-existing medical conditions and travel insurance.

Whether you have a chronic illness, disability, or recently saw the doctor for a medication change or diagnostic test, then you probably have what qualifies as a pre-existing medical condition.

Different types of travel insurance plans have different ways of addressing coverage for pre-x, so we want to give you the rundown. In the coming days, we’ll be posting more just on this topic.

THINGS TO KNOW:

🏥 Pre-existing conditions CAN be covered by comprehensive travel insurance plans, but you have to meet certain requirements, like buying your plan at the right time and covering the full cost of your trip.

🚑 Travel medical & visitors insurance covers the acute-onset of a pre-existing condition, which is jargon for — “Oh, sh*t! This flare-up requires immediate medical care, and we’d better get to a urgent care or emergency room quick.”

👩🏽‍⚕️International health plans offer coverage for pre-existing conditions, and plans are individually underwritten for maximum personalization.

🧠 Mental health disorders are only covered if hospitalization is required, and we’ll talk more about mental health & longterm travel in the coming days.

Travel insurance doesn’t fall under the Affordable Care Act, so it’s not mandatory for insurers to cover pre-existing medical conditions. That’s because travel isn’t considered a necessity, even if it is for you. But the good news is you can still get covered if you know HOW.

And that’s what we’re here for ;)
