    Planning a trip to Disney World. Will the available Travel Insurance cover our flights/baggage and rental car if we book them on our own? We are booking hotel and park tickets through Disney. Thanks!

    Welcome, Margarita!  

    How exciting that you’re putting the puzzle pieces together for a wonderful vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! I understand wanting to feel peace of mind when you travel so I’m happy to help you understand the nuances of travel insurance.

    Disney has a partnership to offer a Travel Protection Plan for your Walt Disney World vacation. Here's an overview of the policy, but please also select your home state at the bottom of the page to view full details of the policy. 

    The Travel Protection Plan is like an umbrella, protecting you in a downpour should anything out of the ordinary occur on your special vacation. This coverage is not constrained to aspects of the vacation purchased through Disney, so yes – your flights and rental car purchased on your own will also be covered under the program and consider them safely tucked under the umbrella.  

    I encourage you to call the Disney Reservation Center to discuss the Travel Protection Plan and they can answer any specific concerns pertaining to your situation as well as add this purchase to your vacation. My family is fortunate to travel a lot, but we always add a travel insurance component to prepare for anything as we go Into the Unknown.  

    We live in an ever-changing world, Margarita, and you are smart to protect the investment of this very special trip. I hope the travel insurance option makes you feel a protective spell, like a Fairy Godmother watching over you on this magical journey, and lets you focus on what’s most important during your trip.  

    Safe travels,
