International travel is fraught with uncertainties. TravelGuard’s Essential Expanded Silver trip insurance plan offers a travel insurance policy that protects you from unforeseen expenses related to the trip. As with most travel insurance plans, the TravelGuard plan offers coverage for trip cancellation and interruption, trip delay, and baggage loss and delay.

Medical benefits up to $15,000, emergency evacuation, and repatriation of remains are also covered in the plan. TravelGuard also features a $500 benefit exclusively for the return air fare of an interrupted trip. This coverage cannot be combined with regular trip interruption coverage. They are separate benefits, and are treated as such.

If you purchase the plan within 15 days of making the initial trip payment, you receive many extra benefits. Some of the extra benefits include coverage against travel operator default, a $25,000 accidental death or dismemberment, and pre-existing medical conditions coverage.

You can also opt for optional medical coverage upgrade, which increases the level of your medical coverage. You can also purchase extra accidental death and dismemberment benefits up to $500,000. If you are planning to rent a car during your trip, you can receive $35,000 in coverage by purchasing the additional car rental collision coverage.
