A document with the word caa on it.

Everybody knows even the best laid plans can go awry.

Travel bookings can get altered, trips can suddenly get cancelled or your luggage can mysteriously end up thousands of miles away from your hotel.


Sometimes the answer can simply be summed up with that’s life. But often, there are more obvious reasons, like bad weather, an unexpected illness or an emergency back home that can cancel or delay your vacation.

Unless you’re a gifted psychic, there’s just no way to tell if your vacation will go exactly as planned. That’s why we recommend packing a little peace of mind on your travels by getting our Trip Cancellation and Interruption Insurance.

Why Trip Cancellation coverage matters.

Trip Cancellation coverage can protect you against paying for a vacation twice.

Imagine – you’ve booked your trip and something happens to prevent you from travelling.  You might not get your money back if you need to cancel your trip.

Trip Cancellation can cover the following:

  • You or a family member gets ill and can’t travel

  • You’re called for jury duty

  • You lose your job

  • There’s a new travel advisory

  • A travel supplier you’ve bought from goes out of business

If any of these situations happen, you’re going to want to make sure you can recover all that money you spent so you can plan your trip again for another time. If you are feeling uncomfortable about your trip, Cancel For Any Other Reason (CFAR) is a benefit that allows you to cancel your trip for any other reason up to three hours before departure.

We interrupt this vacation for a missed connection.

Your trip cancellation coverage ends once your trip begins, so if something goes wrong*** after *** you leave home, you want to make sure you’re covered.

Caught in traffic due to road closures and missed your flight? Or maybe bad weather made you miss a connection. What if there is a medical emergency back home and you need to get back immediately?

Trip Interruption insurance covers things like:

  • A return flight home due to a family emergency

  • Food and lodging for an involuntary schedule change

  • The return of your vehicle­­
