Can I cancel my trip if I’m worried about getting the Norovirus?

Last Updated:

Fear of contracting the Norovirus is not a covered reason to cancel a trip under standard Trip Cancellation policies.

More Detail

You can only cancel due to fear of the Norovirus if you purchased the Cancel For Any Reason upgrade. This benefit allows you to cancel for a reason that is not otherwise covered, including fear of contracting the virus.

Cancel For Any Reason is a time-sensitive benefit that is available on certain policies within 14-30 days of your initial trip deposit date. To purchase the Cancel For Any Reason upgrade, you must insure 100% of your total trip cost. If you cancel, you must do it at least 48 hours before your departure date, and you will only be reimbursed for up to 75% of your trip cost.

This information is time sensitive and may vary by policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available 24/7 and are delighted to help.
