  • How Safe is Your Flight? Take No Chances With Flight Insurance

In many travelers' minds, air travel is a very safe mode of transportation. Sure, accidents do occur occasionally, and flights will periodically be delayed for mechanical work, but in general most people seem to feel safe while flying, and as a result many who should consider flight insurance do not. A recent fine levied against a major air carrier may have you rethinking your stance on this issue.

According to a recent article published on CNN.com, American Airlines was hit with a fine of over $24 million by the FAA. This fine represents the largest ever levied by the FAA, and it was recommended because it alleged that American operated thousands of unsafe flights. The specific issue referenced by the FAA concerned wiring in the plane's wheels which could lead to fires or power loss.

This type of news may make you reconsider just how safe any given flight you take really is. With that in mind, it is always a good idea to consider purchasing flight insurance, as you simply never know what might happen when you walk onto a plane for a trip of any distance.

Flight insurance offers an affordable way to make sure that you will receive the medical care you need. Everything from minor injuries to death and dismemberment are covered, leaving you with valuable peace of mind on domestic and international trips.
