Summer Travel Horror Story

Some years back my husband and I decided on the spur of the moment to take a week end vacation to Florida. We live in and back then 27 South was two lanes all the way to the Florida line. Our trip started out just fine we gassed our car and headed out.

After about two hundred miles we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere. We started seeing deer everywhere on the side of the highway. At first it was exciting to see them, but after the first fifteen they began to loose appeal.

They really lost their appeal when one ran into our car. It busted the radiator, knocked the headlight loose and rolled over the top of the car. We were in the middle of no where, no phone, no passersby and the car wouldn’t run. We walked what seemed like a million miles until we finally got a ride to the next town.

There we had to pay to have our car towed to the town we were in. The tow truck driver recommended someone to fix the radiator, but they couldn’t get to it until the next day. We were so tired that we rented a room at the local hotel and slept strait through until the next afternoon. By the time we got up and got our car both the week end and our money was gone. We left that little town with our tails tucked never to return.…

Travel Horror Story

I am the kind of person who always leaves ample time to get through security and to my gate. However, one time I barely made it.

It was the first day they did not allow people to bring liquids on the plane. I had a brand new bottle of expensive cologne that I took in my carry-on luggage to ensure it would not be damaged in my checked bag. It wasn't until I waited for an hour to get to the x-ray machine in security that I was told I could not bring liquids on the plane.

I was not about to throw away a brand new bottle of expensive cologne, so I ran to the counter to check it in. The line was unbelievably long. There was no way I was going to make my flight after waiting in this line.

I flagged down a manager and told her my situation. She let me cut in front of at least one hundred people to check my cologne. She then escorted me to the front of the security line.

I sprinted to the gate and boarded with the last boarding group. I barely made my flight thanks to the kindness of that manager. What a hectic morning!…

Trip Insurance from a Travel Insurance Company

When looking at vacations, trip insurance is an important part of planning any holiday, particularly when going overseas. Purchasing low cost travel insurance or single trip travel insurance can be easily done through a travel insurance company specializing in holiday insurance.

The most common coverage for short term traveling is medical and dental insurance, but other items can include accidental death, overseas funeral costs, lost, stolen or damaged travel documents as well as flight cancellations. Checking with a travel insurance company and comparing rates between them and your own insurance carrier is a good idea which can result in saving money. Can Protect Your Family Vacation

Checking for the cheapest travel insurance is easy with online services. Travel insurance online can help you get quotes quickly and compare prices. Since companies offering travel insurance can vary in rates, getting several estimates is the best way to ensure you get the exact coverage you’ll need.

Look for companies offering both single trip travel insurance as well as those with annual travel insurance. With more products to offer in their travel insurance packages, it is more likely the company can tailor a plan to fit your specific trip.

Annual travel insurance is generally for people who travel frequently normally for business. Covering areas such as delayed departures, flight insurance, international travel insurance as well as any legal assistance which might result in detainment are good ideas when internationally traveling.

Although many people vacation without trip insurance, having peace of mind with a small policy can help you avoid terrible situations in case of an accident when not at home. If an emergency should arise while traveling, assistance is very valuable and travel insurance companies can connect you with the right help quickly.

Situations can take a turn for the worst, especially when going overseas and young people with student travel insurance may find the legal aide of an attorney helpful.

The best advice is to research any travel insurance company and choose the right trip insurance to fit your budget as well as your vacation.…
