In general, insurance is a safety net in case something should go wrong with your health or plans. No one likes to think of a medical or security emergency when they’re planning a vacation. But in today’s challenging times, travel insurance for international trips is perhaps more important than ever before.

Here is why we strongly recommend getting travel insurance for Panama trips and how we work hard to keep you safe, protected, and enjoying every minute of your Panama fishing vacation.

What Is Travel Insurance?

Travel insurance is a great option for adventure travelers because it can pay for unexpected expenses that come up and give you peace of mind that the value of your trip is protected if something happens. Every travel insurance plan is different, but they often cover up to a certain amount if your trip is cancelled, interrupted, delayed, or requires changing.

We recommend IMG Signature Travel Insurance in addition to signing up for a Global Rescue membership. IMG is one of the most highly recommended travel insurance companies in the world, while Global Rescue covers emergency evacuations that could otherwise cost you over $100,000 without coverage. Travel insurance during COVID times is an especially smart choice to make in case you become sick while traveling or the pandemic causes changes in travel accessibility.
