  • Don’t buy from a brokerage that does not disclose important details about itself such as location and contact information. A legitimate brokerage should also display pertinent information about licenses, registrations, and/or affiliations with a local Chamber of Commerce or Better Business Bureau.
  • Do purchase travel/health insurance from a brokerage that offers plans from a number of companies. A variety of plans from top-rated companies signals that the brokerage is serious about offering coverage that meets your needs at an affordable price.
