    Cool need travel insurance to Aruba?

    Hi all,

    My boyfriend and I are going to Aruba in July for the first time (YAH!!!) and as I was gathering all the info from Aruba.com, I noticed something that says travel insurance is required when getting into Aruba? does anyone know anything about that? do they really ask for proof of travel insurance at the airport? what kind of insurance shall we get? any input is really appreciated. Thanks.

    I am not sure where u found that info, but I have never purchased any kind of insurance to go to Aruba and we have been going for quit a few years. The only thing I can think of is that maybe when u purchase ur trip, from AAA's or Apple vacations for example, u purchase insurance in the event u have to cancel prior to going in which case u would get ur money back.

    Are you asking about Trip cancellation insurance or Health/medical insurance?

    Trip cancellation insurance is your choice.

    Health/Medical insurance is my personal recommendation. You just never know!

    No Aruba Government requirement for any type of insurance from a tourist. All personal preference.

    As mentioned above, your health insurance may or may not be covered in Aruba. Check with your health insurance provider to see how their system works. Many providers tell you that you have to pay cash/credit at the time of service received, then you can be reimbursed with receipts. But, nothing is "required."

    I take out travel insurance simply because our parents are elderly and anything can happen to cause us to delay our trip. I paid $73 PP for my 7-night trip to Aruba. On the way home, our flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection and we had to spend the night in Atlanta. Hotel, taxi, meals cost us about $250. I submitted all the info and am now waiting to see if I get re-imbursed. This is the first time I've ever needed to use the insurance. I got AIG Travel Guard.

    I would not do it unless, but you know your situation better than anyone. If you feel there might be a chance to have a problem, then take it otherwise I would not.
