Should I buy Travel Insurance for Mexico?

Even though the general consensus among travelers is that having travel insurance is not that important you may want to take a second look at the benefits.

When you should highly consider travel insurance:

  • During hurricane season.
  • Traveling with children or elderly.
  • If you have a close sick relative.

Reasons to consider travel insurance even if none of the above apply:

  • If the price lowers you can get a refund [on some plans*].
  • Trip assurance.
  • Unexpected disasters.
  • Reimbursements for medical costs.
  • You just want the peace of mind while traveling.

Some credit cards offer travel insurance for a nominal fee that can cover you up to a year and some cards cover any person’s trip if it is purchased on the card.

*Some insurance plans will reimburse you the difference in price if you find the same vacation for less.
