Understanding Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance is important to understand, since like health insurance coverage, the customer may be refused coverage. Many insurance companies will offer a surplus of coverage for individuals and families. The company will consider few aspects of the policyholder, by reviewing the risk factors involved. If the policyholder is a high-risk the company may cover the holder, but the premiums will be higher than standard in most instances. Travel Insurance on the other hand, can refuse customers if they pose a high-risk.

Heightened Airport Security

SURVIVING AIRPORT SECURITY What to expect at the airport By Laura Quarantiello 2002 Tiare Publications 349 words The new airport security rules, instituted in the wake of the September 11 tragedies, are not only causing longer lines and more delays, they're also confusing travelers. How many bags can I carry aboard? Are golf clubs considered weapons now? What about nail clippers? Will airport screeners be searching every nook and cranny of my bags? Do I really have to show up two hours early for my flight? The anxiety is enough to make you take the train. Here are some answers to help you out. Yes, your nail clippers will be confiscated. The airlines have tightened the rules on what is considered a potential weapon.

Nail clippers (with metal file), pocket knives, razors, scissors, and even corkscrews now make the list of no-no's. Leave these in your checked baggage or at home. Don't try to bring golf clubs or ski poles aboard, either; they won't be allowed in the passenger cabin.

Only one carry-on per person. The FAA is restricting the number of bags you can carry aboard to one, plus one personal item like a purse or briefcase. Don't try to take more, it will just cause a longer delay. Increased security means everything gets searched. Your carry-on luggage will be opened and inspected for contraband. To speed things up, pack everything within your luggage in clear plastic bags or in see-through containers.

Make sure radios or computers have fresh batteries installed in case screeners want to test them. And watch out when carrying baby powder or other powdered materials like vitamins or baby formula; some airlines are turning these away. Always arrive early. As air travel returned to normal in the days following the terrorist attacks, delays of up to two hours were not uncommon.

Things are running a bit smoother now, but always leave a little extra time, just in case. All it takes is one small problem to hold up the entire line. So allow at least an hour for all flights, an hour and a half or even two hours is better. (end) - .
