For many, a family vacation is a special occasion – and never more so in 2021, when such trips are investments which need protection.
A trip insurance policy covers the non-refundable costs of your trip if you’re unable to take your vacation or have to interrupt your trip and come home early. The coverage automatically embeds some extras like medical coverage, lost baggage, and missed connection benefits.
Many people are asking about travel during the COVID-19 pandemic and the “Cancel for Any Reason” benefit.
A “Cancel for Any Reason” benefit is an upgrade which requires purchase of a Preferred-level plan and carries additional cost. It is important to note that this benefit must be purchased within 10 days of making your initial trip deposit for any aspect of your trip, be it lodging, a car rental or reservations for travel.
A “Cancel for any Reason” benefit allows you to cancel for any reason not listed on the Certificate of Coverage and you’d receive a 75% refund of your insured amount. Cancellation due to travel restrictions or other circumstances related to the Coronavirus are not a covered reason to cancel under these plans unless you have the “Cancel for Any Reason” benefit. However, illness, as certified by a doctor, may be a covered reason for cancellation.
It is also important to read your plan documents carefully and be aware that this benefit is not available to residents of New Hampshire, New York and Washington.
