While you’re planning your next getaway, don’t forget to get travel insurance; these
days, it’s a necessity! You may be surprised to know that if you’re injured while
travelling outside of your home province, provincial health care covers less than 10% of
medical costs! With that in mind, cover your bases with an affordable travel insurance
plan that works for you and your travel companions.

According to TuGo, an All Inclusive Holiday Package offers comprehensive coverage.
Here’s why:

1. Bundle away

If you’re 59 years old or younger, and interested in coverage to supplement Emergency
Medical Insurance, your most economical option is an All Inclusive Holiday Package; it’ll
save you time, money, and stress!

2. Prepare for the unknown

The truth is, accidents happen, travel advisories come into effect on the regular, and
there are plenty of unknowns when it comes to travel. But when you’re on vacation, you
shouldn’t have to worry about a thing.
TuGo’s All Inclusive Holiday Package not only has Emergency Medical Insurance
coverage, but it also includes:
• Trip Cancellation & Trip Interruption Insurance
• Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance
• Baggage Insurance

3. No deductible

In case you need to make a travel insurance claim, coverage with TuGo’s All Inclusive
Holiday Package includes an automatic $0 deductible, meaning there’s nothing extra to
pay before we cover your approved claim.

No matter where your travels take you, ensure you’ve got the right travel insurance to
cover all your needs.

Where We Travelled

Let’s take a look at today’s travel trends and where we travelled. Where are the world’s tourists and business travelers coming from, and where are we all going? Some of the answers in this graphic from Hipmunk will surprise you. Bet you can’t guess which country’s residents take the most frequent trips, or what the top destination was in the 2010s. Spain and France remain popular as destinations, but where do the Spaniards and the French go when they want a vacation? If Americans aren’t going overseas much, where are we going? This infographic packs a lot of data into a small space. It gives a fascinating glimpse into worldwide travel patterns with a focus on what Americans have been up to for the past forty years or so. Take a closer look at where we’re all going, where we’re coming from, and which destinations are falling in and out of favor over time. Then tweet @thehipmunk and let Hipmunk know where you’re going this year.

Mexico- Still a Great Vacation Spot!

Mexico is a country known for its history, beauty, beaches, food and hospitality. Unfortunately, it’s also known for hurricanes and lately violence. The negative press related to violence has affected tourism- not to a huge degree but definitely to a noticeable one. The facts are true- there is violence related to drugs and drug cartels. But the drug cartel problems are mostly near the U.S. and Mexican border. Sometimes a tourist gets caught in the action but it’s almost always gang against gang or against the government trying to stop the violence. The popular resort towns are as safe as ever!
Here are my general tips for travel to Mexico:
-Don’t go to Acapulco, Tijuana or some of the other northern cities and towns due to internal violence (I wouldn’t go there anyway). I would go to Cancun, Los Cabos, Ixtapa, Cozumel and Manzanillo in a heartbeat.
-Investigate upgrade availability at your resort before you book. For a few hundred dollars more, you get a suite with ocean view, private dining lounge access, in-room dinner for 2, VIP boat cruise and more at the Great Parnassus in Cancun.
-The Government of Mexico says you can only use Mexican Pesos. Not true. The American Dollar is still king and accepted readily along with Pesos (Note- if you pay in USD, your change may be in Pesos). If you take public transit in Cancun, you can pay $1 USD or 10 pesos.
-Find a travel agent who knows Mexico. Based on your budget and needs, you’ll stay at the resort that is right for you and you will have a great Mexican vacation!
