Here are the top 10 foreign trips Americans cover with travel insurance

The U.S. may be a big country with a lot for domestic vacationers to experience, yet Americans like to venture abroad, too. For example, about 8.7 million Americans flew or cruised to the Caribbean last year, while 17.74 million-plus made tracks for Europe, over 6.25 million headed to Asia and more than 2.44 million vacationed in the Middle East.

Here are the top 10 foreign trips Americans cover with travel insurance

The U.S. may be a big country with a lot for domestic vacationers to experience, yet Americans like to venture abroad, too.

More than 40% of U.S. citizens hold passports and, according to the National Travel and Tourism Office in Washington, D.C., some 93.04 million of them traveled outside U.S. borders in 2018.

For example, about 8.7 million Americans flew or cruised to the Caribbean last year, while 17.74 million-plus made tracks for Europe, over 6.25 million headed to Asia and more than 2.44 million vacationed in the Middle East.

Heading so far outside U.S. borders often comes at considerable cost. The Los Angeles Times reported in 2016 that overseas trips can cost up to five times more than domestic ones, so it’s no surprise many of those planning a foreign vacation opt to purchase travel insurance. Whether or insurance is a good fit for one’s own trip, however, depends on individual circumstances, CNBC has reported.

Geopolitical or personal safety concerns can also come into play with trips to certain destinations. For example, Warwick, Rhode Island-based online travel insurance emporium InsureMyTrip has noted a rise in policies sold for trips to the Dominican Republic after reports of Americans falling ill there, according to a spokesperson. In fact, 3 out of 10 calls to its insurance agents are from travelers with questions about or cancellation requests for the country.

Here’s a look at the top 10 foreign countries (excluding cruise destinations) that vacationers who have opted to buy travel insurance have headed to over the past 18 months, according to InsureMyTrip.com, along with figures for the total number of Americans, insured and not, who visited these nations in 2017 or 2018.

Alphabet’s self-driving car company tests free Wi-Fi and music to entice riders

Waymo is rolling out amenities to entice riders to use its self-driving taxis, creating a potential route to profitability in a money-losing industry. The Alphabet subsidiary is testing complimentary Wi-Fi in its robotaxis in greater Phoenix, where hundreds of the company’s identical, driverless minivans have been carrying paying riders since December. In late April, Waymo launched ad-free music streaming for passengers through Google Play Music, its parent company’s answer to Spotify and Apple

Alphabet's self-driving car company tests free Wi-Fi and music to entice riders

Students use the Waymo driverless vehicles to get to school.

Waymo is rolling out amenities to entice riders to use its self-driving taxis, creating a potential route to profitability in a money-losing industry.

The Alphabet subsidiary is testing complimentary Wi-Fi in its robotaxis in greater Phoenix, where hundreds of the company’s identical, driverless minivans have been carrying paying riders since December. In late April, Waymo launched ad-free music streaming for passengers through Google Play Music, its parent company’s answer to Spotify and Apple Music.

Waymo also has appealed to families with non-tech perks: It has installed a child car seat in every minivan and ensures vehicles arrive cooled to a precise 72 degrees in Arizona’s desert heat.

The aim is persuading passengers that the company’s ride service, dubbed Waymo One, is less stressful than driving their own cars or riding with its rivals. Chatty or sketchy drivers, and vehicles that vary in size and cleanliness, are top gripes among fans of ride-hailing apps.

“When I push the Waymo button I know exactly the product I’m buying,” said Jordan Ranous, 26, a Phoenix bank analyst who said he takes four Waymo round trips each week.

The city of Chandler, about 20 miles southeast of Phoenix, last month began allowing staffers to expense Waymo rides for work-related trips with an eye to boosting worker productivity.

Waymo’s challenge is to prove that hospitality and connectivity can generate profits. Waymo currently charges rates comparable to Uber and Lyft, whose reliance on fares has those firms bleeding red ink.

Eliminating drivers would slash Waymo’s labor costs. Consistent, quality service might enable the company to charge higher fares, while internet, music and video streaming could generate extra fees or ad sales. Wall Street investment analysts have estimated Waymo’s value at more than $100 billion, assuming in-car services contribute revenue.

“Those who win this space are going to have the most convenient solution and the best experience,” said Mark Boyadjis, a global auto technology lead at research firm IHS Markit.

Waymo said its core business is charging for rides, not advertising during them. Providing “personalization” perks creates a sense of freedom, it said.

“Whether you want to catch up on emails or jam out to some of your favorite tunes using our music integration, we encourage riders to make this space their own,” spokeswoman Julianne McGoldrick said.

Uber and Lyft, both of which are developing self-driving capabilities, declined to comment. Automotive firm Aptiv Plc, which has a year-old operation in Las Vegas with 30 robotaxis, said it does not offer in-car entertainment.

China retail earnings up 8.5 percent during new year holiday, Commerce Ministry says

China’s retailer and catering enterprises earned over 1 trillion yuan ($148.3 billion) during the Lunar New Year holiday, defying an economic slump to rise 8.5 percent from last year, the country’s commerce ministry said late on Sunday. The increase was down to the rapid growth in sales of new-year gifts, traditional foods, electronic products and local speciality products over a six-day holiday period ending on Saturday, the Ministry of Commerce said in a notice on its website.

The increase was down to the rapid growth in sales of new-year gifts, traditional foods, electronic products and local speciality products over a six-day holiday period ending on Saturday, the Ministry of Commerce said in a notice on its website.

Domestic tourism during the new year break generated total revenues of 513.9 billion yuan, up 8.2 percent on the year, with the number of trips rising 7.6 percent to 415 million, the official Xinhua news agency said on Sunday, citing official data.

More older people are bringing student debt into their retirement

When Eads’ son was diagnosed with cancer, he retired earlier than he expected to tend to him. During these difficulties, Eads put his loans into multiple forbearances, which are temporary postponements of payments, during which interest accrues. “All that happened to me wasn’t their fault,” Eads said. “But it feels like the people who service the loans are putting obstacles in front of you.” “It’s difficult”Because he’s enrolled in an income-driven repayment plan — which caps his monthly payment

More older people are bringing student debt into their retirement

When Eads’ son was diagnosed with cancer, he retired earlier than he expected to tend to him. His son eventually died.

During these difficulties, Eads put his loans into multiple forbearances, which are temporary postponements of payments, during which interest accrues. The 71-year-old man now owes more than $60,000, more than double what he originally borrowed.

“All that happened to me wasn’t their fault,” Eads said. “But it feels like the people who service the loans are putting obstacles in front of you.”

He and his wife now live off around $2,600 a month between both of their Social Security checks and a small pension he receives from his 20-year career as a chemist for the government.

“We don’t take trips or anything else like that,” he said. “It’s difficult”

Because he’s enrolled in an income-driven repayment plan — which caps his monthly payments at a percentage of his income, he’s not responsible for paying anything right now.

Protect yourself from a career derailment that trips up 1 in 4 workers

And when you’re plagued by these issues and cannot work, disability insurance can help you bridge the pay funding gap.

“As people go through their open enrollment, oftentimes their patience runs out after choosing their 401(k) solution, their health-care solution or their [health savings account],” said Jamie Kalamarides, president of Prudential Group Insurance. “Don’t forget about disability insurance.”

You may be tempted to overlook disability coverage for another reason: cost.

Disability insurance is often more expensive than term life insurance, according to financial advisor Tom West, partner at Signature Estate & Investment Advisors, which leads many to neglect the coverage.

Yet when planning for clients, West said he actually puts disability coverage high on the list of priorities.

“The probability of missing six to nine months of work because of a car accident or a broken ankle is so much exponentially higher than dying prematurely for a lot of folks who are in their younger years,” West said.

Long-term disability, which ordinarily kicks in after three to six months, typically costs 1 to 3 percent of a worker’s annual salary, according to Policygenius.

Google got more than $1 billion in ad dollars last quarter from travel giant Booking

Online travel giant Booking Holdings spent upwards of $1 billion on Google ads in the past quarter, according to its earnings report and analyst estimates.

Google got more than $1 billion in ad dollars last quarter from travel giant Booking

Online travel giant Booking Holdings spent upwards of $1 billion on Google ads in the past quarter, according to its earnings report and analyst estimates.

Booking, which owns Europe’s Booking.com and U.S. businesses including Priceline and Kayak, said on Monday that it shelled out $1.3 billion on “performance marketing” in the quarter, up from $1.2 billion a year earlier. That spending was “primarily related to the use of online search engines (primarily Google),” and other online services, according to Booking.

Google is such a critical piece of Booking’s advertising budget because so many travelers search for trips with terms like “flight to New York” or “hotel in London.” Booking is competing for that highly valued traffic with Expedia, TripAdvisor, Trivago and even Google’s own services.

Mark Mahaney, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, estimates that “north of 80%” of Booking’s performance marketing expense goes to Google. That would equal over $1 billion and account for more than 3.6 percent of Google’s total third-quarter advertising revenue.

Mahaney, who has a “buy” rating on Booking, said in an email that, “I’m sure they are one of Google’s top five direct customers worldwide.”

But it’s a complicated relationship.

As Booking has continued to bolster its yearly spend with Google, it’s increasingly found itself in the position of being both a big customer and a competitor.

For example, Booking is vying for traffic with Google Flights and Google Hotels, which are known as metasearch products, meaning they aggregate data from online travel agencies like Priceline or Expedia, and then direct users to those and other sites to book their trips. A Google search for “flight from San Francisco to Chicago,” brings up another Google page that lets the user type in dates and times.

In its most recent quarterly report, Booking mentions Google 52 times and highlights the risk of relying on Google for a “significant portion” of its traffic and bookings.
