Why should I buy the insurance plan?
Even the best-planned travel can be impacted by the unforeseen sickness, medical emergency, delayed flights, lost passports or baggage delay, etc. Troubles can occur when you least anticipate them forcing you to cancel or interrupt your trip, lose your ticket investment, and incur unplanned expenses.
For what reasons can I cancel or interrupt my trip?
Some examples of covered reasons for trip cancellation/interruption include illness, injury or death of you, a family member or traveling companion; traffic accident en route to departure; a documented theft of passports or visas; mandatory evacuation; terrorism; and your home made uninhabitable by fire, flood, hurricane or natural disaster.
