Due to travel restrictions, plans are only available with effective start dates on or after
Definition: Your trip is canceled before you get started for a covered reason. Travel insurance can reimburse your prepaid, non-refundable expenses if you must cancel your trip due to a covered reason.
Example: You’ve rented a big house on the lake for a summer vacation with extended family: your dad, your spouse and kids, and your siblings too. The night before you leave, your dad slips on the steps and ends up in the hospital with a concussion. You want to cancel the trip, but the deadline for a refund has already passed. Fortunately, you purchased travel insurance with trip cancellation benefits. The disabling injury of a family member is named as a covered reason for trip cancellation, so you file a claim and get reimbursed for the entire cost of the lake house. You reschedule the trip for August, once your dad has recovered.
