Reasons why you should get travel insurance for your next trip to New Zealand

Natural Disasters

While Guam is a beautiful destination, it can be affected by natural disasters like typhoons. Travel insurance can provide coverage for trip disruptions caused by these events, including unused portions of your trip.

Lost or Delayed Baggage

Luggage can sometimes be misplaced or delayed during air travel, causing inconvenience. Travel insurance can provide compensation for essential items if your baggage is lost, stolen, or delayed for an extended period.

Medical Costs

While traveling, unexpected health issues or accidents can occur. Travel insurance can cover medical expenses, hospital stays, doctor's visits, and medications, ensuring you receive necessary medical care without worrying about costs.

Island Activities

Guam offers a variety of island activities such as water sports, hiking, and cultural experiences. Travel insurance can provide coverage in case of accidents or injuries related to these activities.
