Richard Feldman fell 30 feet off a cliff and broke both legs while traveling in Vietnam in October 2009; he’d simply stopped to admire the view (and answer nature’s call). In January 2011 the Ventura, CA native was selected by trip insurance company TravelGuard as the winner of the World’s Unluckiest Traveler contest, winning a 10,000 dollar travel voucher. Not a bad consolation!
Richard Feldman’s disaster tale is an excellent reminder of the value of travel insurance. International travel is a memorable adventure, but it does pose some risks. Anything can happen: medical emergencies, severe weather, delayed flights, and lost passports or luggage. We may be forced to cancel or cut our trip short and thereby lose our vacation investment. We may also be faced with unplanned expenses. Navigating these types of problems while abroad can be complicated and costly.
Travel insurance offers protection from many unforeseen difficulties. RentVillas stands by CSA Travel Protection. Their FreeStyle Luxe plan covers trip cancellation and interruption; travel delay; missed connection; baggage and personal effects; baggage delay; medical or dental expenses ($250,000 per policy); emergency assistance (including EMT transport); rental car damage; travel accident ($250,000 per policy); and air flight accident.
