Support in a Medical Emergency

Whether you cut your foot on the pier or broke your arm trying to show off on a rental bike medical bills can be quite expensive. You don’t want to have to wait until you fly home to deal with a medical emergency causing it to turn into something worse. By adding trip insurance to your vacation you will have $25,000 of protection to cover accidents or sickness during your trip.


Dental Emergencies

Picture this: you, your spouse, and young children and are staying in a beautiful vacation rental with a private pool. You want to prove to your kids that you are still young and attempt to flip into the pool only to find your face hit the side of the pool. Nothing like a painful chipped tooth to ruin a vacation. Red Sky will cover $1,000 in emergency dental treatment to get you back to having fun in no time.


Sickness, Injury, or Death of You, a Family Member, or Traveling Companion

If you are traveling with your family or a group of people travel insurance is a must because it will protect everyone on the trip. If anyone gets sick, injured, or God forbid dies while traveling or during the trip the medical costs or cancellation costs are covered.


A Named Hurricane or Other Natural Disaster

Every year from June – November the Atlantic coast is subject to hurricane season. Charleston, being a coastal city, is susceptible to the risks of the strong tropical storms and hurricanes that travel through this region. In past years, this has led to hundreds of guests being unable to travel during their vacation. What Mother Nature does is completely out of our control but travel insurance protects you from losing your money due to these destructive weather events.


Reclaim Your Cancellation and Rescheduled Flight Costs

If difficult weather or some other unexpected circumstance causes your flight be cancelled or rescheduled Red Sky will help you get your money back. The cost of trip cancellations, delayed arrival, and missed connections are all covered under the policy’s benefits.


Replacement of Stolen or Lost Luggage

Did you find yourself staring at the baggage conveyor belt with your bags nowhere to be found? Another reason to purchase travel insurance is Red Sky will compensate you for lost, stolen, or delayed baggage.


​Rental Car Damage

“That deer came out of nowhere! I swear!” If you get into an accident, or cause damage to a rented car during your vacation, don’t stress. Travel insurance understands that things happen and will cover up to $25,000 worth of damage to a rental car.


Peace of Mind

You worked hard to be able to go on vacation and there is no reason for unexpected circumstances to ruin it. Travel insurance provides the peace of mind that you, your travel companions, and your belongings are protected from the unpredictable parts of life. For only a small fee you can ensure that your vacation will go smoothly no matter what life brings.
