I've generally avoided buying travel insurance but have thought about it multiple times... Even mores for my parents, who are in their mid 70s.. Right now I've relied on a the benefit provided by my credits cards, Chase Sapphire Reserve or Citi Prestige... It's not full blown insurance but I believe it checks enough boxes for my taste. One thing it doesn't do super well is if there are any irregular operations necessitating purchasing additional airfare or travel arrangements... but other than that it's got basic trip cancellation/interruption (up to 10K), medical evacuation ((up to 100K), emergency dental/medical and etc.... I do believe that Amex Plat Charge card offers unlimited coverage on the medical evacuation so I've considered getting one of those for my parents.. so, sure it's not comprehensive insurance but it's something....
