What is Common Carrier Accidental Death Coverage?
While the occurrence of death during travel on a common carrier is rare, it is still important to have a visitors insurance plan that includes common carrier accidental death coverage. This coverage ensures that in the unfortunate event of your passing while flying on a commercial jet, public bus, or any other form of public transportation, a designated beneficiary will receive a lump sum of a specified amount.
Common carrier accidental death coverage is typically a benefit that will be included in your visitors insurance plan, with some plans offering an additional coverage buy-up if more coverage is needed. This benefit is also sometimes referred to as AD&D, or accidental death and dismemberment. Most visitors insurance plans will offer the ability to add coverage for AD&D.
By adding common carrier accidental death coverage in your visitors insurance plan, you can have added financial protection and peace of mind during your travels.
