It’s always a good idea to purchase travel insurance (also called “trip insurance”) to ensure you have a great trip. Based on the type of insurance and your plan, travel insurance might reimburse you for the cost of a hotel and meals if your flight is unexpectedly cancelled, or if bad weather forces big changes to your itinerary. Get lots more information on insurance. (NOTE: we have no arrangements with AARDY – it’s just a helpful website.)
