Whether you've decided to take advantage of Ireland's hauntingly
beautiful country side, or to ride its famous tides on a surfboard,
chances are you'll need to do some intense traveling to get there.
If you need to travel, you need travel insurance, and heading to
Ireland is no different. Whether you're from America and the trip
will be via plane, or you can just hop up from England, there are
a few things you should know about your travel insurance and how
it might affect your trip to the Emerald Isle.
There are several areas that travel insurance addresses that you
may not have thought about while planning you trip. For instance,
in the event of having your trip ended due to you or an immediate
family member falling ill, you might find that you'd have to forfeit
the cash that had been invested in the rest of the vacation. With
travel insurance, the insurance company would make sure that your
funds were reimbursed and that when you are feeling better, you'll
be able to make another try at your dream trip.
Travel insurance to Ireland may include personal liability coverage.
In the event of negligence causing another person's injury or damage
to another person's property, personal liability coverage can take
of things. Some travel insurance policies even insure against the
theft of things like expensive suits or laptops.
If you've done any sort of travel at all, there's a good chance
that you've had your luggage bounced or lost. While it is possible
that this has never happened to you, you have to take into account
it might and that you might be stranded at a hotel in Dublin with
nothing more than your toothbrush, your wallet and your passport!
Most basic forms of travel insurance will cover luggage loss. While
this policy will only kick in once your luggage has been lost for
a specific amount of time, it is still a good one to have in light
of severe damage or total loss.
Finally, travel insurance will also cover emergency medical treatment
and get it paid for. Most health insurances will not cover you
if you leave the country, and though these policies tend not take
on pre-existing illnesses, they will cover things like hospital
care in the case of broken bones. If you end up with a broken leg
or arm, think how much better you'll feel when you realize that
the hospital bed and the treatment is already paid for!
Whatever people might say about Ireland bestowing good luck, don't
push yours! Travel insurance will buy you an extra amount of safety
in an uncertain world, and that in itself is worth quite a lot!
