Protect your trip with travel insurance

For many travel agents and tour operators, it seems like offering travel insurance is a postscript – it’s presented as an add-on once the trip is booked. In the same way someone may say: Would you like fries with that?, you can hear it being said: Would you like travel insurance with that?
