    Our credit card company provides travel insurance. Plus, my company provides International SOS for me and my family.

    Does it cover personal travel? I had an employer that had this type of policy but I believe it only covered me when traveling for work.

    Yes, some cards provide certain insurance. Understand what it does cover, and what it does not. And of course, dollar limits.

    Yes. We're Canadian. I think it's a good idea to have it. When "we" were travelling more we had annual coverage. But, I have bought trip specific coverage. It's not expensive and there's no harm in having it.

    I do on big trips to cover the non-refundable portions, just in case one of us becomes ill or injured and is unable to travel. I never used to, but one year I had to have some minor unexpected surgery a couple months before a cruise, and it got me thinking about what would've happened if I would've needed it right before or during the trip.

    I never have until we booked a trip to Hawaii in January, obviously the trip was cancelled and the insurance company would not pay because they said pandemics were not covered. Airline will not refund either we are out almost 5,000 dollars on a trip we never took. I will never buy trip insurance again.

    I saw it offered back in the day....in a vending machine....like 2$ and you filled out the form and dropped it into the box. Then boarded.
    Not a great plan as to win, you lost....:cry:

    That was more of a life insurance policy - which as you say, somebody else wins - not you. LOL!

    What if you were sick BECAUSE of 19? Then cancellable(?).

    Many policies do not cover pandemics. But - if you have some "other" illness and can not go...then you might be okay. Guess it depends on how you submit your claim and how much they ask.
