These questions include:

- What is the total cost of the trip?
- When are you departing?
- When are you returning?
- What is your destination?
- What type of trip are you taking? (Cruise, flight, other)

The bottom line, however, is that it does not matter how easy their quote tool is to use if you are not looking for travel insurance.
