If there’s one important lesson we’ve probably all learned in the past few months, it’s that travel insurance is not just a good idea, it’s a GREAT idea. 

I’ve been recommending it for as long as I can remember to anyone who plans to travel to Savannah during the months of July through October, since that’s our peak hurricane season. 

However, with the recent pandemic, I now recommend that everyone purchase travel insurance, no matter when you’re planning to visit.

One of the best things about World Nomads insurance, is that they do not have an endemic or pandemic exclusion for policies purchased by US residents, which means that you may make claims arising from the COVID-19 for the benefits specified in your policy. Yay!

In full transparency, I’m an affiliate for World Nomads travel insurance, because it’s the company I’ve found to have the most reasonable rates for the amount of coverage offered. That means I may earn a commission, at not extra cost to you, if you purchase through one of my links below. You can read my full affiliate disclosure on my Terms and Conditions page.
