Travel protection for when you’re mixing work and leisure
It’s never been easier to unplug and take off, now that you can work and study remotely anywhere, anytime – assuming there’s good Wi-Fi, of course.
But travel glitches can arrive in all shapes and sizes, even with the most meticulous planning. Although it’s great to hope for the best, it may be wiser to make your move with travel insurance.
Because of flexible work and school schedules, more travelers are opting to take 'flexcations', extended stays away from home that are mixture of leisure and work, or going to school remotely, either domestically or abroad.
If you’re planting yourself in a different place while working and playing, there are a few questions to ask yourself when you’re shopping around for a travel insurance policy. How long am I staying? What kind of medical coverage do I need? Am I taking along personal belongings that I can’t stand to lose? Is my entire family covered? How much am I spending on pre-paid deposits?
Although you can choose any place in the world as your destination, your travel insurance may only cover trips beyond a certain distance from your home, depending on your country of residence.
Check to see what geographic regions are covered under your specific plan, and whether your country of residence has a reciprocal healthcare agreement with the countries you’re visiting and what these agreements cover.
Just as planning a trip requires a jumble of components, there's a lot to consider when buying travel insurance and specifically for the needs of flexcations. Here are a number of ways that that travel insurance can help on a trip that combines business and pleasure.
