Baggage Insurance

Baggage Insurance

A form of travel insurance that provides coverage in case one's checked or carry-on luggage is lost, stolen or damaged. Baggage insurance is purchased because the airline itself provides little or no coverage automatically. Baggage insurance generally only applies to airline travel, though theoretically one may purchase it for ocean or train transit.
