Travelers are not exempt from tragedy just because they are on vacation. Riding on public transport is not risk-free, so travel insurance also includes common carrier accidental death and dismemberment coverage.
We are all at risk of having an accident every time we use planes, ferries, trains, buses or taxis in our own countries. Sometimes, though, using a public transportaion in some countries increases our risk because of lower safety standards abroad, plus more crowded and more chaotic conditions which result in more accidents than in our own countries.
If we are in an accident while riding on a common carrier in our own country, we can be compensated by the transportation company involved. However, when we go abroad, we have no such recourse, so we and our loved ones will be seriously out-of-pocket as a result. That is why a good travel insurance policy that provides appropriate coverage in the event of a tragic accident is vital.
Before buying any policy, it is essential to compare the coverage and limitations set by the different travel insurance companies. This can be easily done online. Spending the time now could save money on your premium and pay dividends in the event of a tragedy.
