Situations that occur in travel are very diverse and sometimes from a simple late arrival at the airport gate your flight can be completely sabotaged.
Joana del Toro, specialist at Allianz Partners, a company that provides assistance to travelerstalked with life and style regarding common scenarios that occur when we travel.
“The most common thing that happens when we travel on health issues is that your tooth hurts, it is what we have detected the most,” said del Toro. “Another thing that is very common is poisoning or some stomach ailment, and this is the same whether it happens nationally or internationally, it does not discriminate in any way. We know that expenses abroad can range between 10,000 and 47,000 pesos for these kinds of situations,” he added.
This season, many of our cities get rid of the heavy traffic that they usually have, we see this in the country’s large metropolises, but without a doubt some points such as highways, bus stations and, without a doubt, airports are concentrated. “The fact that you arrive late at the airport or at your boarding gate can be decisive and we know that this is very frustrating, but having insurance can be your rescue ticket for these moments,” said the specialist.
In many cases these situations turn out to be very random.there are times when simply waiting for security checks hinders the entire boarding process and you can no longer board.
“Although on many occasions these Allianz insurances are available on large international airlines, what we do as insurance is to cover the expenses that imply the modification of your departure to be able to have your trip or if you spent for a tour or transfers you can also cover,” adds del Toro as an Allianz Partners specialist.
In the case of the Mexicans who use coverage the most for their trips, they are those who visit Europe, countries such as France, Italy, Spain and Germany, assuming that the expense made to go to the old continent is higher, although in the case of the United States United States and Canada also use it. In addition to the main beach destinations such as Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, to name a few.
National travelers spend four to five days away from home, and when traveling abroad this increases between 10 and 14 days, so it is important to take these intervals into account to have coverage, according to data from Allianz Partners.
“It is recommended that when you are going to travel, you look for insurance at least 48 hours before it takes place, so that you have a margin and it can be covered from the beginning of your trip,” said del Toro.
It is important that when choosing insurance you verify alternatives that cover:
Loss of documents/luggage. Being left without your documents outside the country can be a very compromising situation, as well as losing your luggage, because this happens even with the best airlines.
Flight cancellation or loss. You don’t want to have a no-return episode, so ensuring your return should be among your priorities.
Common discomforts. The stomach is the first to resent a trip, although we know that the teeth can betray us, sometimes even a bad dream can lead to a migraine, think about that even if the convert does not have fun.
Accidents. Walking through the cobbled streets of northern Italy or a bad fall on a walk could result in a sprain or some painful injury, this type of care could be covered without sacrificing your card.
Pandemic. Because the cases of Covid-19 are still present, if you come to be with signs of this condition, take into account both medical care, expenses for additional accommodation in case of quarantine or necessary recovery, and the loss involved in the journey not made.
Repatriation of remains. If some illness is complicated during the trip and that results in the death of a traveler, look for an option that covers the expenses that derive from the repatriation of remains.
