The question of the value of trip protection was addressed by leading personal finance commentator Jeff Rose from credit.com.
His piece published in Yahoo Finance first looked at what is covered, and then at ways t tailor your policy to suit your travel - and keep costs down.
"Many people aren't sure what travel insurance is — or what it covers. Because of the confusion, far too many people travel without coverage that could protect them from unexpected costs that could leave them financially devastated." Jeff Rose.
