Travel Insurance

If you are spending several thousand dollars to holiday in Anguilla, you should consider travel insurance. There is a web site called InsureMyTrip.com that shows quotes from different insurance companies, comparing different policies and letting you pick the one you want. Here is a consumer experience from someone who found their insurance through this site.

Your policy should probably cover the following: Trip cancellation / interruption (hurricanes!), Medical expense coverage, Medical transportation, Baggage insurance, Baggage delay, Travel delay, Missed connection, and perhaps rental car insurance (don't bother if you personal auto insurance covers it).
