Travel Insurance: Do I need it???
Here we go! August 4th is almost here. Mobile, Alabama here we come. You’ve booked your airline ticket, you selected your hotel and got a roomie. Now comes the big decisions. What classes do I want? Should I go for hands on or demos? You book them, you schedule all your parties (woo-hoo) and list all the new toys you want to buy. The very next thing on your list should be travel insurance. CSA Travel Protection to be exact. Why? Remember: The LARGEST portion of your expenses to Convention and Mid-year are “NON-REFUNDABLE. CSA Travel Protection has provided valuable travel insurance and emergency medical assistance services to protect travelers and to refund their trip costs since 1991. CSA will be there if you need their assistance.
The ICES Board of Directors have been listening to you and want you to have the information you will need to ensure you have protected yourself. We have no responsibility to CSA to promote them, we are just offering you another option.
What happens if you get sick at convention (it has happened more than we can remember) and you need medical attention? Will your medical insurance cover it? Many out of state insurance companies fall short. What would happen if you are ready to leave for convention and you, or a family member become ill, or some unforeseen event occurs? You will not recover all of the expenses for your classes or your airline without travel insurance.
These are just a few reasons you should truly consider purchasing CSA Travel Protection:
CSA Travel Protection wants to make it easier for all ICES members to know where to go to purchase insurance. There will be an 800 # on the website for you to call to book your insurance.
You can book the insurance the day you make your plans or decide right up to the day before you leave.
You have 10 days from the date of purchase in which to cancel the policy should you change your mind.
The cost of the policy is based on your age and the cost of the trip. The cost of your policy will be dependent on your particular circumstances.
This coverage is available to U.S. residents only, but cannot be purchased if you live within a 100 mile radius of the convention or mid-year.
