Can I cancel my upcoming trip because of a wildfire?

Last Updated:

You could be covered to cancel your trip because of a wildfire, as long as you bought your policy before the fire started.

In order to cancel your trip because of a wildfire, your policy must include Trip Cancellation coverage. The following reasons can trigger Trip Cancellation:

  • The fire makes your hotel accommodations or your destination uninhabitable
  • There’s a mandatory evacuation at your destination that lasts longer than your trip
  • Your home has been made uninhabitable by the fire
