If you get the right kind of travel insurance here are the things that are covered.

  1. Loss of life, dismemberment, loss of sight, or total permanent disability.

These are some of the things that are covered if you have the right kind of travel insurance. These are things that happen to most travelers and it would be a good thing that you’re covered for most of it. Of course there are some exclusions and here are a few.

  1. Suicide.
  2. Self-inflicted injury.
  3. Under the influence of alcohol, drugs or narcotics or and any addictive substance
  4. While the insured serves as a soldier, police or volunteer and participates in a war or crime suppression.
