Can I cancel my trip because of a CDC Alert?


A CDC alert is not a covered reason to cancel a trip under standard Trip Cancellation policies.

More Detail

The only benefit that allows a trip to be cancelled because of a CDC travel alert is the Cancel for Any Reason benefit.

Cancel For Any Reason allows you to cancel for a reason that is not otherwise covered on your policy. To be eligible for this benefit, you must purchase your policy within 14-30 days of your initial trip deposit date and insure 100% of your prepaid and non-refundable trip expenses.

Cancel For Any Reason only reimburses up to 75% of your trip costs and requires you to cancel the trip at least 2-3 days before your departure date. This upgrade usually increases a policy’s premium by about 40%.
