Did you know many trip protection plans include covered reasons that let you cancel or interrupt your trip and receive a refund for your prepaid trip expenses? That’s right — with most variations of insurance for travelers, you can’t
just cancel for any reason.
Covered reasons in our RoundTrip plans that allow you to cancel or interrupt your trip include events such as (additional terms apply to each):
There are many more covered reasons provided by our RoundTrip plans. The most important thing is to find the covered reasons portion of your RoundTrip travel protection plan and see what situations will allow you to cancel. Keep in mind some of these covered reasons may have their own limitations such as time limits.
We recommend you read through the list of covered reasons in the plan document so you understand what they are and how they work.
Check with your insurance agent or our Seven Corners sales team if you have questions about these limitations. They may affect when you plan to go on your trip, or what you plan to do on that trip.
On some plans, though, you have the option to buy Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) coverage. It costs an additional fee, and it will reimburse you for 75% of your prepaid and nonrefundable trip expenses. This coverage lets you cancel for any reason at all if you meet the requirements.
Here are the requirements for our RoundTrip plan.
They are very similar to other plans available in the market:
CFAR can be reassuring if you are concerned you may need to cancel for a reason not listed in the plan document.
If you’re able, wait to cancel a trip until you’ve checked the covered reasons. If you’re not certain the reason is covered, contact our sales team and ask. They can help you make an informed decision.
And, as always, if your claim has been denied, check your plan document to see if you can understand where your situation may have fallen in the exclusions or limitations.
Travel insurance can be an affordable option to protect your trip expenses, medical expenses that could occur during your trip, and your personal belongings. It can provide important reassurance to travelers and can help if unfortunate events impact your next trip.
That being said, insurance plans can be difficult to understand at times. That’s why it can be helpful to talk with our sales team to ensure you choose the best plan for your situation. If you have questions, contact our sales team via email at email@example.com or by phone at 800.335.0611.
Happy Travels to You!
