It is highly recommended that you purchase travel insurance from a reputable national insurer. Travel insurance offered by an airline does not apply to an entire trip, but simply covers airfare. Many travel insurance firms are available (Allianz, etc), so secure your trip after purchase by buying travel insurance, as our refund/cancellation policy will be enforced, no matter the circumstance. You can use the tools found on the following website and choose the best insurance for your needs: TravelInsurance.com.
