The insurance benefits give you three main types of coverages: First, there is protection for your unused and nonrefundable trip costs if you need to cancel, interrupt, or delay your trip due to a covered reason. Trip insurance can also protect your medical expenses if you get hurt or sick on your trip. Finally, trip insurance can protect your belongings if they’re lost, stolen, or damaged while traveling.
Trip Insurance is provided by Seven Corners as part of a package of insurance benefits and 24/7 non-insurance travel assistance services in our Seven Corners Trip Protection plans.
A travel medical plan provides a wide variety of medical benefits and emergency services that are important if you become sick or hurt on a trip outside your home country. A travel medical plan covers medical expenses for an injury or illness that occurs on your trip. You need this protection because your home health insurance may not follow you on travels abroad. Travel medical plans also cover emergency medical evacuations.
Seven Corners offers this coverage through our Seven Corners Travel Medical plans. Our multilingual travel assistance team is available to help you 24/7.
Travel insurance provides several different types of benefits that are especially important for travelers. This can include coverage for:

There are two main types of travel insurance: trip protection plans and travel medical plans.
Trip protection protects U.S. residents while traveling within the United States and abroad and is important if you don’t want to lose the money you paid for your trip if you must cancel, interrupt, or delay your trip. This can include:
Seven Corners provides this protection in our Seven Corners Trip Protection plans for U.S. residents.

Travel medical insurance provides high limits of medical coverage to protect you when you travel outside your home country. You can choose the medical coverage limit and deductible that best meet your needs while also providing the mandatory level of coverage for countries that require health insurance.
Seven Corners has customizable plans for travelers whose destination includes the United States and for those who plan to travel to countries other than the U.S.
Our plans can include acute onset coverage for pre-existing conditions for most travelers (coverage limits and availability are based on the traveler’s age) and emergency medical evacuation coverage if the medical care necessary to treat your illness or injury is not available at your location.
Seven Corners provides this protection in Seven Corners Travel Medical Insurance plans.

Not always, and if it does, it may only cover emergency expenses. Also, it’s unlikely it will cover an emergency medical evacuation or repatriation if you get sick or hurt in an area without appropriate health care for you.

Some credit cards may include limited protection for things like lost luggage or rental car protection. They may even provide a small amount of coverage for trip cancellation, usually only for a limited number of covered reasons. The best way to know is to check with your credit card company.
One big difference between coverage offered by a credit card and protection from a travel insurance provider is emergency medical evacuation. This is included in travel insurance plans, and it’s important protection if you get sick or hurt in an area without appropriate medical care. Credit cards and domestic health insurance don’t usually provide this coverage.
For the coverage it provides, most travel insurance plans are economically priced.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, contact the local emergency services immediately and seek appropriate medical care. Do not call us first unless you need our help locating a medical facility.
Before you travel, learn how to contact emergency medical assistance. Not all countries use 911 as the emergency phone number.
For additional types of assistance, please call Seven Corners Assist using the phone number on your travel insurance ID card. Seven Corners Assist is available 24/7 to provide support for urgent medical travel assistance services.
You may be able to extend your coverage period depending on the type of plan you have and how long you have already been covered.
Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) is an optional benefit you can add to Seven Cornes Trip Protection Basic, Choice, or Elite plans for an additional cost. This benefit is not available in all states. Our quick quote tool will offer the benefit to you if it is available in your state.
CFAR reimburses up to 75% of your prepaid, nonrefundable trip cost if you cancel two or more days before your scheduled departure date for any reason not otherwise covered.
CFAR only applies to trip cancellation, not trip interruption, trip delay, or missed connection.
Pre-existing conditions are medical conditions that existed before your travel insurance took effect. Coverage for these types of conditions varies by plan.
Pre-existing conditions are excluded from coverage. However, the exclusion is waived for some Seven Corners Trip Protection plans if you meet certain requirements. Learn more about how trip insurance defines a pre-existing condition.
We recommend you identify the amount of nonrefundable, prepaid trip payments and deposits you have made and buy coverage for that amount.
This amount can include expenses such as airfare, cruise bookings, hotels, and vacation rentals. It is often shown on your trip itinerary or invoice, although it may not include separate items such as excursions that you pay for separately. Add these amounts and use this total when asked for Trip Cost when purchasing a trip protection plan.
If you fail to insure any prepaid, nonrefundable trip expenses, those uninsured expenses will not be reimbursable if you later need to cancel or interrupt your trip.
Frequent Flyer Miles
Do not include a dollar amount for frequent flyer miles.
For more details, review these guidelines about how to calculate the cost of your trip for travel insurance.
Seven Corners Trip Protection plans can reimburse you for your nonrefundable, prepaid trip costs for a list of covered reasons if:
Trip cancellation and trip interruption coverages each have a list of covered reasons (such as weather, sickness, injury, death, and more) that can allow you to cancel or interrupt your trip.
Trip delay has a separate list of covered reasons. For all these coverages, benefits are not provided unless one of the covered reasons occurs.
Seven Corners Trip Protection plans cover accident and sickness medical expenses. This can include:
Per the terms of your plan document, the trip delay benefit can pay up to a specific amount per day for reasonable lodging, meals, and local transportation expenses if you are delayed while en route to or from your trip, or during your trip due to a covered reason.
This is any money you paid toward the cost of your trip that will not be refunded to you by your travel supplier (airline, hotel, cruise, etc.) if you must cancel or interrupt your trip. If your trip cost is more than the amount you insured, you will be paid up to the amount you insured.
Example: You need to cancel your entire trip, and the hotel will only refund 75%, or $375, of the $500 deposit you paid.
If you cancel for a covered reason, our trip protection plans will reimburse you for the nonrefundable portion, in this case, the remaining $125.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, contact the local emergency services immediately. For non-emergencies, you may view medical provider information by plan here or contact our team with questions. You can also use the Seven Corners app to find medical providers near you while traveling outside the United States.
Plans are customizable, and you are welcome to add coverage for adventure activities to your travel medical plan. We encourage each customer to speak with a licensed sales agent about which policy best meets your traveling needs.
If you have a medical emergency, contact the local emergency services immediately and seek appropriate medical care.
In many countries, payment upfront in the form of a deposit is required to secure initial treatment. Once evaluated, if additional funds are required, Seven Corners can work with the medical provider to issue a guarantee of payment. Once a guarantee of payment is approved and accepted by the provider, Seven Corners will continue to coordinate with the medical provider on submitting payment once you are discharged.
A guarantee of payment (GOP) is an agreement with a health care professional outside of the U.S. in which payment is guarantee for a covered procedure or care.
In evaluating the medical care provided by local facilities, Seven Corners considers factors such as the quality of the clinicians, medical technology, and specialties available, along with the patient's medical requirements. If we determine the medical facilities are inadequate, our Assist team may initiate a medical evacuation.
Planning a medical evacuation requires careful consideration of several variables, most importantly, the severity of the patient’s medical condition, quality of care that can be accessed locally, and any medical risks involved in transporting the sick or injured patient. Our Assist team will also request necessary medical documents, passport information and speak with any primary insurance that may cover international travel.
When a decision to evacuate is made and Seven Corners covered benefits are approved, our Assist team manages the evacuation plan, including any needs the patient may have while en route.
In an unfortunate event where a customer dies while traveling, we recommend you contact the Seven Corners team at your earliest convenience so we can help and walk you through the benefits that may apply.
In case of a medical emergency, contact the local first responders/emergency services first. As soon as reasonably possible, contact Seven Corners.
If you are traveling in the United States, let your medical provider know about any pre-certification requirements for your plan.
The cost of medical care differs from country to country. Some countries have a national health care plan that can help offset the costs, and others don’t. Before leaving on a trip, make sure you understand what will be covered in your destination country.
Specially trained multilingual representatives help travelers with services ranging from needs as simple as helping you find a doctor to arranging a complex medical evacuation. For urgent medical situations, Seven Corners uses nurses and physicians to connect with the local medical team and help coordinate care.
All Seven Corners plans come with 24/7 urgent medical travel assistance services from our in-house team, Seven Corners Assist and non-urgent travel assistance handled by our Customer Service team Mon - Fri, 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. ET.
