article imageHalf of Canadian travelers bypass traveler's insurance

By KJ Mullins     Jan 21, 2010 in Travel
Canadians venturing from home often don't bother with travel insurance according to a survey released Thursday by Thomas Cook Financial Services. Only half of those that travel purchase travel insurance despite having dealt with travel woes in the past.
Half of those surveyed had dealt with flights being delayed or cancelled. One in four travelers had to deal with trips without their luggage when it was lost. Still half said that they did not see the need to hand over their cash for traveler's insurance.
The results were surprising to travel executives who believe that the insurance is a needed part of any travel plans.
"You should never leave home without travel insurance, especially when we know what can happen when you leave the country," says Kevin McAdam, Director Financial Services for Thomas Cook North America in a press release.
