Travel Insurance: Travel Guard

Should you purchase travel insurance? Why do we buy insurance for our homes, our cars, our health, but not insurance for our vacations? Travel insurance helps protect against the unexpected. A primary incentive to get travel insurance can be for emergency medical assistance. Without these benefits, you may be expected to spend over $10,000 out-of-pocket […]
