Picture this: you plan your dream trip, you have your entire itinerary all squared away, you've put out thousands of dollars in airfare, hotel rooms and tour packages. Then, tragedy strikes. A family member gets very sick. Or, an earthquake decimates your destination. Suddenly, you have to cancel your vacation. And all your plans, not to mention all that money, go to waste.

Luckily, there is travel insurance, something the brochures say will protect your investment should misfortune occur. But how does it really work? We got some folks at the Consumer Reports Travel Letter on the phone to explain the situation to us.
