Unfortunately, no. Cancelling your trip due to your destination becoming unsafe, whether or not a travel warning is issued, is not a covered reason within regular Trip Cancellation coverage. If you don’t want to risk traveling because of the current events in Greece, Squaremouth recommends purchasing a policy with the Cancel For Any Reason benefit. This allows you to cancel your trip for any reason at all, and receive a percentage of your prepaid and nonrefundable trip cost back. Within most policies, this percentage is 75%, but can be as low as 50%.
This benefit is time sensitive, and must be purchased within 30 days of making your very first trip payment. Additionally, you must insure 100% of your prepaid and non refundable trip costs, and cancel your trip at least 2-3 days before your scheduled departure. The Cancel For Any Reason benefit typically increases the premium by about 40%.
To find each policies specific eligibility requirements and reimbursement amounts, always refer to the policy certificate as coverage varies between plans.
