Best travel insurance for the price"


I am looking for good insurance (trip cancellation, lost baggage, delays) for a family of four leaving for China, cost ~ $18,000. I have ranges from $330 to > $1400.

Any helpful hints?

Our home owners/auto insurance company also offers travel Insurance. We have found their travel insurance more comprehensive and at a much cheaper price than those policies offered through the travel agents or tour companies.

If you are looking for cancellation, lost baggage and delay coverage, I would go with the cheapest policy.

Nearly 100% of travel insurance companies will provide the same amount of cancellation coverage.

I wrote a blog post about this issue that may help you find a policy. You can find my blog post here: …squaremouth.com/travel-advice/…

Hope this helps!!

I think Travelex has a program that includes kids for free.
