I made my own travel arrangements and did not go through a travel agent. Can I still insure my trip?
Yes. In fact, more and more travelers who do not use travel agents are buying their own travel insurance online. Sites like Expedia.com and Kayak.com have taken the control from travel agencies and given it to the actual traveler. The same goes for travel insurance.
Buying travel insurance direct is often the best way to go
Buying your own travel insurance online lets you make the choices in finding the best policy. If you don’t like a lot of choices, you can at least find the best prices.
You have more companies to choose from, so you can find the best policy for your individual trip
There are over 100+ travel insurance policies from several companies, all available for researching, quoting, and purchasing online. A travel agent might have 1 or 2 options; usually whichever insurer offered them the best commissions.
