2 Types of Travel Insurance: Medical Coverage Vs. Trip Protection

Million Mile Secrets reader, Nancy, commented:

Do you have any advice for travel insurance carriers?

Travel insurance is broad and complex.  Because there are separate insurances that cover trip related incidents vs. medical issues.

For example, you’ll get coverage for mishaps like trip delays just by paying with credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Citi Prestige.

I’ll explain what you should consider when looking for travel insurance.
