Protect Your Travel Investment and Health with Travel Insurance

  • Do You Really Need Travel Insurance?
    The answer is yes. Many travelers thinking their health insurance or free credit card insurance will completely cover their out-of-pocket expenses. However, that’s often not the case. Consider the reasons below for purchasing travel insurance for your journey.
  • Health Insurance Doesn't Cover Everything
    According to the US Department of State - Bureau of Consular Affairs your domestic health insurance may cover “customary and reasonable” costs overseas. However, they often won’t pay for a medical evacuation back to the US which can cost upwards of $50,000. That’s where Travelex travel insurance plans can help.
  • Credit Card Shortfalls
    Your credit card probably provides some coverage for travel insurance. It’s important to check what coverage you have as this can vary by card type and can even cost you more. Credit card companies often have conditions for their insurance to apply. For example, you may be required to pay for the entire trip with that credit card. For higher benefits coverage, purchase a specific travel insurance plan. Always compare benefits to other policies.
  • Travel Investment
    No one thinks they will need to cancel a vacation, but if you do without travel insurance you could lose the money you’ve invested. If you cancel for a covered reason listed in your policy you are eligible to make a claim.
  • Medical Expenses
    Your health and safety is a priority. If you’re traveling you may not always have access to the best health care. If an emergency medical evacuation is necessary, we will transport you to the nearest suitable hospital for treatment. Additional benefits include transportation of a visitor of your choice to stay with you or to transport any traveling children back home, should you become hospitalized.
  • Personal Belongings
    If your luggage is delayed or lost, Travelex plans go above and beyond. We can refund you for items lost, stolen or damaged, and reimburse you for necessary items you need to buy until your baggage is returned.
  • Travel Assistance & Concierge Services
    Call the toll-free number 24/7 prior to departing for assistance or advice on planning your trip. We can help with booking concert tickets to making dinner reservations or a tee time for golf. When you’re traveling, one toll-free call gives you access to a variety of travel services like medical emergency assistance and lost baggage retrieval. ​ If you would like to receive a quote, click the button below to be redirected to the Travelex Insurance Plan Site. ​ If you chose to decline travel insurance, please use the form below to accept the responsibility for your decision.
Acceptance of Responsibility

We recommend you purchase travel insurance to help protect yourself and your investment.

Before checking the below checkbox on this waiver and departing on your trip, consider these questions:

  • What if you can’t leave home due to an accident, unforeseen sickness, or natural disaster?

  • Where would you go if you were injured while traveling in a foreign country? 

  • What would you do without clothing and medications if your bags were lost?

  • What if you miss a connecting flight and become delayed for a long time?


Kindly note that travel insurance can also include coverage for delays that may result in unexpected expenses for flights, hotels, meals, clothing and local transportation.  Some plans even offer trip cancellation and interruption coverage for unused portions of your trip.  Plans can also prevent you from losing your investment due to events such as traffic accidents en route to your gateway, your home or destination becoming uninhabitable, or the shutdown of all transportation services causing you to miss your departure.

Refusal of Travel Insurance Waiver


Your trip is a significant investment, and Journeys By Jeannine recommends the purchase of travel insurance. If you choose to decline protection, you are assuming any financial loss associated with your travel arrangements. 


By declining to purchase travel insurance you fully understand that your travel agent is not liable or responsible for any expenses incurred, as a result of cancellation or interruption, emergency medical and transportation, baggage and personal effects, flight and travel accident, and/ or rental car physical damage. 


By declining coverage, I assume full responsibility and release Journeys by Jeannine and its partners from all unforeseen expenses that may result from emergency medical care, baggage delay or loss, trip cancellation and/or trip interruption.

I have been advised that travel insurance is available and recommended; however, I DO NOT wish to purchase this protection.

Thank you. Your message has been received.
