Simple things like luggage are great, but if you are looking to dazzle your friends and family, take the next step and purchase products that can make a real difference in the enjoyment and safety of their next trip.

For the person who is always on the go, this gift guide can make the most out of their next adventure.

GiftsGifts Ideas for Travelers

Not sure what to get for the family or friend who can’t seem to stay in one place? Use this gift guide that can make international travel as simple as possible. Let your loved ones focus on having a great trip rather than worrying about potential mishaps along the way.

  • A power bank is a great gift idea that can help any international traveler stay connected, wherever they are in the world.

  • Universal power adapters are a necessary part of international travel, so consider purchasing an all-in-one global travel adapter that can get a charge anywhere in the world.
  • A wallet that can hold all your travel documents and block illegal RFID scanning devices is an ideal gift for keeping personal and credit card information safe from fraud.
  • FocusPoint International’s CAP Travel Medical and Security Assistance Plan addresses many of the travel mishaps that are overlooked by traditional travel insurance. That means if your loved one requires emergency transportation or air ambulance services abroad, CAP can provide them with no additional out-of-pocket expenses. This is the perfect gift to ensure safe international travel with medical and security assistance for those you care about.
  • Portable water purifiers are a must for the outdoor adventurer in your life. Give the gift of pure and clean drinking water to the traveler who loves to head off the grid during their international endeavors.

Travel TipsSix Important Tips for Purchasing Travel Insurance as a Gift

Many consumers feel like travel insurance is a simple gift idea, but the truth is that it is often not enough. Here are the six most important tips to consider when purchasing travel insurance for a loved one:

  1. Read the fine print before purchasing and understand all the exemptions in the policy. Be aware of the claim processes, deductibles, and the details of what will happen if your loved one is hospitalized during travel.
  2. Cancel for any reason policies address some of the uncertainty that comes with international travel. Travel restrictions can emerge in less than 24 hours, and rising COVID case numbers may have you reconsidering your trip. Look for flexibility from your travel insurance policy and ensure that your loved one can cancel for fear of travel.
  3. Search for policies that address travel mishaps related to COVID-19. Consider what would happen should your friend or a family member need to quarantine unexpectedly; how will travel insurance address these issues?
  4. Add a supplemental CAP Plan to any existing travel insurance policy to address COVID-related travel mishaps, including hospitalization and transfers. Travel insurance coverage is extremely limited if you require emergency transportation, and a CAP Plan can address these complications as they arise. It comes with state-of-the-art smartphone technology and a one-touch assistance button that helps to keep any international traveler safe and in the know regarding changing travel restrictions.
  5. Some travelers who seem to always be on the move tend to extend their trips unexpectedly. When purchasing travel insurance, look at the duration of the policy and its limitations should the trip get prolonged on a whim.
  6. If you are gifting travel insurance to the adventurer in your life, ensure that the travel activities they partake in are covered. Many extreme sports are not included in traditional travel insurance policies, so select an adventure travel plan that speaks to the needs of the thrill-seeker in your life.
