How You Travel is as Unique as the Places You Visit.

Let’s face it: we all like to vacation differently. While some of us prefer accommodations that let us blend in with the locals, others prefer mega five-star resorts. And while some people book travel through discount sites, others prefer the white-glove treatment of a full-service travel agency. Regardless of how you travel, the unexpected can still happen. Trips can get cancelled at the last minute for an unforeseen reason — someone may get sick while away due to local water or food, or you might need to return home quickly for a family emergency. That’s why it’s comforting to know that CAA Travel Insurance covers you, however you like to travel.

Booking a vacation rental property through Airbnb, Trip Advisor or HomeAway? CAA has you covered!

These days, more and more people are opting to rent their vacation accommodations instead of staying in a traditional hotel. As a result, CAA’s Trip Cancellation & Interruption, Non-Medical Vacation Packages and Single and Multi-Trip Vacation Package plans now cover bookings made through providers such as Airbnb, HomeAway and even Trip Advisor rentals.1 With this benefit in place, you will get back the non-refundable portion of a fully prepaid stay that was booked through an approved online platform, should you have to cancel your trip or cut it short due to an unforeseen covered reason. Of course, it is up to you to know the terms of your rental contract as the rules can vary between providers. Check out one of our recent blogs to learn more about this coverage.

Don’t want to venture out to see a doctor? CAA Travel Insurance has two solutions for that.

Waiting in long clinic lines is nobody’s idea of a fun vacation. Visiting a doctor in a clinic or urgent care can be hugely inconvenient — especially for a relatively minor ailment. Besides, why expose yourself to the germs circulating around the waiting room?

That’s why CAA Travel Insurance now offers Telemedicine and House Call Services to policyholders. The way it works is simple. CAA’s 24/7 Assistance2arranges for you to have an appointment with a Medical Doctor through a secure internet video link. If you prefer to be examined in person, CAA helps arrange for a local MD to visit you in your hotel room or at your vacation property. Of course, should the medical condition be severe, head to the nearest ER — CAA Travel Insurance will help you navigate that too.

So go ahead and plan your own style of vacation. By packing CAA Travel Insurance before you go, you’ll travel with peace of mind wherever you’re headed.
