Can I cancel my trip due to the Europe Travel Alert if I have Cancel For Any Reason?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

Yes, you can cancel your trip because of the Europe Travel Alert if you have Cancel For Any Reason, as long as you do so at least 2-3 days before your scheduled departure date.

More Detail

Cancel For Any Reason allows you to cancel your trip for a reason not otherwise covered by your policy, such as the Europe Travel Alert, and receive up to 75% reimbursement of your prepaid and non-refundable trip costs.

The Cancel For Any Reason upgrade can significantly increase the cost of a policy and is only available within 14-30 days of your first booking or deposit for your trip. Travelers must insure 100% of their trip costs to be eligible for Cancel For Any Reason. This benefit requires travelers to cancel their trip at least 2-3 days in advance of their departure date.

Travelers without the Cancel For Any Reason upgrade cannot cancel their trip because they are afraid to travel to Europe following the U.S. Department of State’s issuance of aEurope Travel Alert.
