Trip cancellation insurance plans provide insurance protection for the non-refundable cost of the trip as well as the health of the traveler. The non-refundable expenses typically include the cost of hotel bookings, air, rail and cruise ticket expenses ... Trip protection insurance can also include coverage for sports equipment like Golf or Ski equipment and car rental, however these are sometime add on coverage and not part of the basic plan. Depending on the type of trip protection insurance, coverage can provide protection from unexpected expenses such as damaged, stolen, lost or delayed baggage. While some trip protection plans require that the trip is cancelled for an approved reason other plans are available with 'cancel for any reason' benefit. However you must buy the 'cancel for any reason' add on option. US citizens find the Trip cancellation insurance very useful for expensive vacations, especially if it involves international travel. This is logical given the high cost of the vacation and the fact that domestic health insurance plans provide no coverage for trip expenses, and very little coverage for the health of the traveler when they are outside US borders.

What is the difference between travel insurance and health insurance?

Most travel insurance has an element of health insurance with it. However, travel insurance also has a number of travel benefits one may not need ordinarily, such as baggage loss, trip interruption, indemnity per day in hospital, emergency reunion, trip delay, missed connection, coverage for loss of personal effects, and political evacuation. Many of us have reduced medical benefits when out of network or out of our home state, so some of these may offer some complimentary coverage to fill gaps our plans may leave.
