This is my first post on Travel Stack, thank you in advance for your help. I am an American traveler going on a 2-week trip and don't know much about travel insurance and whether it is appropriate for my situation.
I will be going on a 2-week trip to Alaska this month, flying out from the eastern US to Anchorage on 8/17 and flying back on 8/31-9/1. I will be traveling with my friend Kevin. Our trip has an intense itinerary with many expensive day trips such as kayaking, flight tours, river rafting, etc. All of our lodging, car rental, airplane tickets, and trips have been booked on Kevin's credit card(s); I will be paying back my share to him later. I will have my own credit cards on me for additional purchases once there.
My question is, since all of our major purchases are going on his credit cards, is there any reason for me to buy a traveler's insurance policy? I have my own Aetna health insurance plan through my employer, which indicates there are in-network providers in Anchorage. Is there any other type of coverage that I might be missing of which I'm not aware?
