  • Don’t Forget Student Travel Insurance When Seizing European Travel Deals

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
Of all the residual effects caused by the Icelandic volcano, the most unexpected one to emerge is the appearance of great travel bargains in Europe. Before you take advantage of these tempting deals, make certain you also buy international student travel insurance.

As the volcano has wreaked such havoc with the European tourism industry, special incentives are being offered to get people excited about visiting the continent again. Since many students plan European vacations in the summer, this price break represents a great opportunity to save some money while fulfilling a dream.

But as we have seen in the weeks since the volcano first erupted, it is difficult to tell when it will totally subside. Multiple occurrences of additional ash being spewed has caused many more travel cancellations and delays since the initial problem arose, so there is no guarantee that your travel plans will not be ruined, leaving you at a loss for the money you invested in airfare, hotel, and additional expenses.

With that in mind, it is important to protect yourself with international student travel insurance. This type of insurance will allow you to recoup your expenses if your travel plans are cancelled or if you need to cancel them. The cost of investing in student travel insurance is quite minimal but it could save you quite a bit of money.
