Road Trip Travel Insurance Q&A
What does road trip travel insurance cover?
Our ExactCare Lite plan is specifically for drive vacations. If you are flying, taking a cruise or traveling internationally, this is not the plan for you, and you should consider one of our other ExactCare plans.
ExactCare Lite includes a minimum amount of cancellation insurance to cover your non-refundable deposits like hotels, attractions or event tickets. It also includes emergency medical and medical evacuation coverage – in case you require out-of-network and out-of-pocket medical expenses while on your drive vacation.
Can you buy road trip travel insurance after booking?
Yes – and if you buy within 15 days of making your initial payment towards your trip, you qualify for bonus coverages, like coverage for pre-existing medical conditions. However, you can also buy coverage up until the day before you leave.
How much does road trip travel insurance cost?
Road trip travel insurance can cost from 5% to 7% of your total trip cost, though that amount can be influenced by:
- Your age
- The number of people covered under your policy
- Number of days of your vacation
- Number of days prior to your departure
As with any travel insurance, it pays to look around and compare to find the best road trip travel insurance policy for you.
Can trip insurance be worth it for a drive vacation?
Absolutely – road trip travel insurance can be worth it because it can help reimburse you for covered expenses like emergency evacuation, unexpected out-of-network emergency medical bills, and costs related to trip cancellation and interruption – like hotel cancellation penalties or non-refundable attraction or event tickets. The U.S. State Department includes travel insurance as a key component of its traveler’s checklist. (Source: Travel.state.gov)
Do I need medical travel insurance while on a road trip?
A medical emergency outside your health plan’s network could mean hundreds or thousands of dollars of medical bills that you have to pay. Road trip travel insurance can help pay if you get sick or injured when you’re away from home, and can cover costs to evacuate you to an adequate medical facility.
Is ExactCare Lite right for me?
Does your vacation include non-refundable deposits like hotels, attraction or event tickets that you booked months out? Are your pre-payments protected if you’re forced to cancel for a covered reason? Do you have adequate coverage if a medical emergency occurs while you’re away from home on vacation? ExactCare Lite may be your best road trip travel insurance option.
