    Hey guys.
    When I booked my trip I didn't get the insurance, which is a first for me. We're flying American Airlines and this is the same week they cancelled 10,000 flights. Our travel agent said we were not allowed to get the insurance AFTER booking so he advised I look on my own. He was charging us over $100 each.
    I'm so glad this happened. Because I searched on my own and found an indepdent travel insurance company where I only paid $59 a person!!! It covers everything! Trip cancellations, delays, interruptions, medical, baggage loss, inclement weather, the works.
    So I just wanted to share this link with you. You may find it helpful!
    I emailed it to all my guests!

      Nice...thanks for sharing. We usually pay more than that so it's good to know!

        I would NEVER travel without insurance! And definately shop around.

        For the Canucks out there RBC is the best around and I paid $104 for the 2 of us for 2 weeks.

        If you travel alot, they have a multi-trip package too, I think it's $150 for 2 and it's unlimited trips.

        I sell insurance (in a round about way) so I know the value of having it for sure.

            I personally have to vouch for the Travel Insurance as well. I sell it to almost all of my clients (I sell RBC Insurance)... and after taking all of the extensive training and hearing many horror stories, I would NEVER travel without insurance again!! I cringe when my clients decline to purchase the insurance - you just never know when something may happen.

            If any of the Canadian ladies need to purchase travel insurance for the trip, or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to PM me!

              I have never purchased it! I had never even heard about it until this forum. I think for something as important as my wedding I will though.

                I had never purchased travel insurance either. But I figure, just my luck, something crazy would happen on my wedding vacation, so I bought it for the first time! Thanks for sharing the link though, I will forward it to my guests as well!

                  I have always purchased it while booking and didn't this time (not sure why...crazy, I guess) and then thought to myself, WHAT AM I DOING It's my wedding and if something happens and all of our guests there and we're not, that would be insane!

                  Also, one year we got stranded in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic for a few extra days due to Hurricane Katrina so the insurance came in REALLLLLLLLLLLY handy!

                      For those who are taking/who took a photographer with them away and paid their way, what were your expectations when it came to travel insurance?
                      Did you get it for them? Did you pay? Did you split it? Did they pay?
                      Were you worried about not having it?

                      I'm sending my photographer a list of qn's and this was one of them. We're getting married April 2009 and I am worried about something happening in between when we sign the contract and when we go away in 10 months!
