While "Marcy" was gardening in her front yard, a man approached. He told her he could repave her driveway at a bargain price if she paid cash today. She paid the money, and the man promised to return with a crew the next day to do the work. He never came back. Maybe your neighborhood has seen the scam: An unknown salesman travels from house to house offering to fix up homes or driveways at rock-bottom prices.

The Minnesota Department of Commerce wants consumers to know that travel insurance is not required to travel. However, it may benefit some consumers but not all. Travel insurance is used to protect against the loss of non-refundable travel costs, such as airfare, hotel and tour expenses. Some travel insurance policies offer limited protection against losses due to medical emergencies, damage to personal property, and even death. Before you buy travel insurance, review the policies you have now.
