Trip interruption insurance
Why Buy a Trip Interruption Insurance Plan?
As you plan your trip overseas, you may see information regarding trip cancellation insurance or trip interruption (delay) insurance. You may even consider purchasing it for a brief moment before brushing it aside as a non-necessity expense. What you don’t realize is that travel cancellation insurance is more than just protection for the money you’ve put into a trip, it’s also helping you to protect your family and yourself.
Accidents can occur anywhere and even while on vacation. A car accident, a broken bone, an allergic reaction, could all force you to cancel, delay or cut short your holiday. But there are even more problematic situations that could keep you from your fantasy destination. Lost luggage, credit card theft, flight cancellations – all can put a damper in your plans. This is where our trip cancellation and trip interruption insurance can help.
We offer three trip cancellation insurance plans for you to choose from:
- Worldwide Trip Protector Gold
- Worldwide Trip Protector
- Trip Protector Lite
You pick the one that suits your needs and budget. You can add them to your travel medical insurance plan or just purchase a trip cancellation insurance plan on its own.
To make your life a little easier all of our trip can plans come with free global travel assistance services. If you choose either our Worldwide Trip Protector or Worldwide Trip Protector Gold plan, you receive exclusive business concierge services, identity theft assistance and the global travel assistance services, all at no additional cost to you.
