We strongly recommend that you consider travel insurance which may cover trip cancelation costs, medical, emergency evacuation, personal belongings, emergency assistance, and travel delays. This insurance, available at a nominal fee, can also cover many other conditions such as airline accidents, lost baggage, late flights, inclement weather, “Acts of God,” etc.
Protect your vacation against unforeseeable circumstances. You will be covered if you need to cancel for any number of covered reasons including someone in the party getting ill or injured, a non-traveling family member getting sick, or inclement weather closing roads or airports. Also included is up to $50,000 of emergency medical evacuation coverage.
You are protected against losses due to:
• Trip Cancellations
• Trip Delay
• Trip Interruption
• Emergency Medical Expense
• Emergency Medical Evacuation
• Many other circumstances outside their control
The Travel Guard Protect Assist plan is available to citizens/residents of any country.
What kinds of circumstances are covered for cancellation or trip interruption? This comprehensive policy covers a variety of unforeseeable events. For example, if weather delays your flight and you miss the first day of your week’s vacation, you can file a claim for reimbursement of that one day’s charges. If a relative at home goes into the hospital and you need to cut your vacation short you can be reimbursed for the unused days. And, of course, if an illness or injury causes a cancellation of the entire trip you can recover all of the monies you would have forfeited to cancellation penalties.
Are weather-related problems covered? Yes, in most cases, if your trip is interrupted, delayed or canceled due to weather problems you are covered.
