    3.  You need to cancel your trip due to illness 
    4. You have a medical emergency in a foreign country 
    5. The airline looses your bag 
    6. Travel delays due to weather

Many policies don’t cover risky activities such as motorcycle, moped riding, skiing, parachuting, scuba driving or surfing. Make sure the policy you choose covers you for your holiday destination and the activates you’ll be undertaking. Don’t just pick insurance that’s the cheapest.
