Is travel insurance required to enter the Bahamas?
There are no longer COVID-19 regulations in place to enter the Bahamas, so travel insurance is no longer required. Additionally, both the Bahamas Health Visa and pre-arrival COVID-19 testing requirements have been eliminated.
Why should you buy travel insurance to visit the Bahamas?
If you are traveling to the Bahamas from the U.S., your health insurance plan may not cover you while traveling internationally, so having a travel insurance plan with medical expense coverage is a good idea. We recommend that travelers purchase a trip cancellation insurance policy that provides coverage fr both emergency medical expenses and additional coverage if something unforeseen occurs while visiting. For a fraction of your trip cost, you can add extra protection that can be vital in an emergency. Our Trip Cancellation policies also offer benefits for trip delay and interruption; on select plans, we offer Cancel for Any Reason and Interruption for Any Reason.
Do the trip cancellation plans from Trawick International cover COVID-19?
Yes, most Trawick International plans treat COVID-19 like any other sickness.
Optional Cancel for Any Reason coverage:
On select trip cancellation plans, Trawick International offers Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR). CFAR provides reimbursement for 75% of the prepaid, nonrefundable, forfeited payments you paid for your trip if you cancel your trip for any reason not otherwise covered by this policy - like border closures or travel bans - at least 48 hours before you depart. This coverage MUST be purchased with the initial policy and within 21 days of the initial trip deposit date, and the full, nonrefundable trip cost is insured. (This benefit is not available in every state).
How much does travel insurance cost?
Travel insurance cost is based on the traveler's age, trip cost, length of trip, and other factors. When purchasing a plan with trip cancellation, you should include all non-refundable travel expenses so you can recover the investment in the event your trip is canceled or interrupted.
When should you buy travel insurance?
To maximize your benefits, you should insure your trip within 21 days of the initial trip deposit date and include all prepaid, nonrefundable trip costs. You can still purchase travel insurance after 21 days, but you may not be eligible for time-sensitive benefits such as CFAR or Financial Default.
