Say “I Do” to Travel Insurance

More frequent flight cancelations, like what recently happened with Southwest Airlines, and volatile weather have the potential to ruin weddings and honeymoons, making travel insurance a smart purchase for those planning destination weddings and their guests. This is of particular concern considering weddings are back, with industry research suggesting the number of weddings scheduled for the end of 2021 was already back in the pre-pandemic territory and 2.5 million weddings are forecasted in the US for 2022.

Suffice it to say, travel insurance can protect couples from unwanted financial losses from travel disruption and cancelations.

Lovebirds tying the knot abroad (or domestically) should consider purchasing Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection’s ExactCare® or LuxuryCare® policies, and protect their investment from flight disruptions and natural disasters, such as hurricanes that frequently impact travel to popular Caribbean wedding destinations.

BHTP’s ExactCare makes quick travel assistance more accessible and also sends travelers “as it happens” claim payments for common travel issues, ranging from tarmac delays to lost baggage. For brides and grooms planning lavish nuptials or an extravagant honeymoon, LuxuryCare is a smart option. LuxuryCare offers BHTP’s highest medical care and medical evacuation benefits plus trip cancellation for trips costing up to $100,000 per insured person. Additionally, as health precautions continue to be a high priority for wedding attendees, insureds can find comfort in knowing that should they become ill during their trip, with Covid-19 or another covered medical illness or issue, they can be reimbursed for medical expenses.

Additionally, BHTP recently brought back its Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) plan under LuxuryCare, which is ideal for weddings as it offers travelers the most cancellation flexibility and is the only coverage option available to cover fear of travel. With CFAR it doesn’t matter why couples or wedding guests have to cancel their trip – they just can. In the case that any guest wants to back out last minute for whatever reason, they’re able to do so. CFAR is a time-sensitive add-on that travelers can upgrade to only when buying LuxuryCare.
