Travel Tips on Amusement Parks

  • To avoid disappointment, call the park ahead of time to see if any of the big rides will be closed during your stay.
  • Use a strong sunscreen several times throughout the day, especially after water rides.
  • Protect your wallet from the deluge of water rides by sealing it in a freezer bag before your ride.
  • Bring a spare pair of shoes to leave in your car in case one pair gets wet during your day at the park.

Protect Your Travel Investment and Well-Being

Before you leave on any upcoming summer travels, make sure that you are covered by the WTA Travel Insurance Program because there are hundreds of circumstances that could cause you to cancel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling.

Many travelers think their health insurance, homeowners insurance or even credit card will provide adequate travel insurance protection. Not so! The WTA Travel Insurance Program makes it easy for you to analyze, compare quotes and purchase travel insurance, for any type of journey, from the top U.S. insurance providers.

In an emergency, you’d go to the ends of the earth for insurance services and protection – so why not just already have them in place? Learn more and get an online quote.
