The global COVID pandemic, in turn, has increased importance of travel insurance, which is reflected in the travel insurance products offered by insurance companies, travel has exposed both businesses and people to significant financial risk. Travel insurance provides protection against unexpected losses during travel, which covers expenses related to the risks of travel within the country or abroad, such as: cancellation of the trip; medical services; luggage lost or other unforeseen cases. Safety is an important factor, both within the country and when traveling abroad. We consider travel insurance to be the best way to reduce financial losses while traveling. Canceling trips due to the pandemic has become a common occurrence, and the need for medical assistance has become a real possibility. Thus, travel insurance is a good way to insure yourself against similar types of financial losses.
