LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- On your travel check list, is there insurance? The Better Business Bureau says before you purchase, look at the pros and cons.

Check your home or medical insurance for coverage so you don't have to pay for something you already have to protect your cameras or jewelry. Medical insurance may cover you if you become sick.

However, trip cancellation or interruption insurance will cover you, but some plans cover changes because of medical conditions.

Baggage loss protection reimburses lost, stolen or damaged bags – that could be a good idea if you're carrying many expensive items.

Regardless, the BBB says read the fine print and pay with a credit card, not only to protect the money you spend -- you may get additional coverage, too.
