The baggage carousel has stopped turning and you don’t see your suitcase. No need to panic, you’re covered.
Lost baggage, a common occurrence
Roughly 82,000 bags are lost every day at airports around the world. This number is not just alarming, it practically justifies the need to take out baggage insurance to protect yourself in the event that your baggage is stolen, damaged, lost or delayed.
Living in a suitcase
Your luggage is an extension of your home, which is why it’s so important to insure it.
Depending on the type of coverage, baggage insurance reimburses anywhere from $500 to $1,500 for stolen, damaged or lost bags.
It also reimburses up to $500 for the purchase of clothing and essential items when your bags are delayed more than 12 hours. This means you can replace lost items on the first day and immediately start enjoying your vacation.
Ask one of our representatives about the baggage insurance that’s best for you.
Lost or stolen passport, visa or driver's licence
