It is never a bad idea to protect a carefully-planned trip with coverage for delays, illness, lost luggage, and even natural disasters—the best travel insurance can soften the impact of unforeseen events. Although it is not mandatory, it is recommended and facilitates peace of mind before and during your trip.
