If you’re heading away on holiday, have you considered travel insurance? Here’s why you need it and how Besure can offer comprehensive risk protection for the things you value most. 

While everyone loves going on vacation, holidays can be very costly. In such cases, travel insurance can seem like just one more expense. However, this type of risk protection is very important and can offer some relief if you:

  • need to unexpectedly cancel your trip
  • miss your connecting flight
  • lose or misplace your baggage
  • get sick or injured on your trip
  • need an emergency medical evacuation
  • lose your passport

Comprehensive Risk Protection Designed Just For You

Whether you’re looking for travel insurance or to protect something more non-traditional such as your musical instrument or cellphone, Besure uses the power of social networking, cooperation, and the sharing economy, to empower people to come together and protect the things they value most.

3 Reasons Why You Need Travel Insurance

Many Calgarians love to go on holiday, especially during the summertime, but most are unaware of how important it is to have a travel insurance in place. Neglecting this cover opens you up to a range of risks you could be protected for simply by joining a Besure pool.

Here are 3 reasons why you need to consider insurance when you’re travelling:

1. You’ll Be Covered If You Lose Your Belongings

When you travel, you’ll be doing so with a range of belongings from clothes and jewellery to electrical items and toiletries. If you lose one of these items, or they’re stolen, and you don’t have travel insurance, you will be left to cover the cost of replacements.

Why can’t I claim it on my home insurance policy? While you could claim for any lost items on your home insurance policy, this only works if it covers you for taking your items overseas. Even if it does, claiming on your home insurance will put your premiums up for the next year.

Why start a Besure Pool to cover me for any lost items? Starting a Besure pool for any items you may lose on your travels will give you total peace of mind and allow you to enjoy your vacation knowing that you’re fully protected.

TIP: Make sure it also includes cover for your travel money so that you’re protected for loss or theft of your cash.

2. You Won’t Have to Fork Out Cancellation Fees

When you book a vacation, the last thing on your mind is cancelling your travel plans, yet life is full of unexpected occurrences. There are many reasons why someone may need to cancel their holiday suddenly, including:

  • you or someone in your travelling party falls ill
  • you are required to work
  • your house floods
  • a family member becomes sick or dies

Starting a travel insurance pool with Besure that includes cancellation cover will protect you in such circumstances.

TIP: If you have to cut your holiday short to fly home in an emergency, you should make sure the terms of your pool will allow you to be covered.


3. You’ll Get Coverage In Remote Areas

If you’re visiting a remote area of a different country, have you considered if there are medical facilities in the area? If you suffer a sudden illness or accident and there are no hospitals close to you, you may require airlifting to a hospital, or even back to Canada.

Something as safe as hiking could quickly turn dangerous if you twist your ankle or lose your sense of direction and the cost of an emergency evacuation without insurance may run into thousands of dollars.

Save yourself from high medical costs with Besure: By starting a medical evacuation pool, you can arrange for safe transportation to a medical facility without breaking the bank.
