Can I cancel if it’s unsafe to fly due to terrorist threats?

Last Updated:

Unfortunately, standard Trip Cancellation will not provide coverage for travelers who cancel their trip due to a threat to transportation safety.

If you would like the option to cancel your trip due to terrorist threats affecting your transportation safety, the Cancel For Any Reason upgrade is recommended. Cancel For Any Reason allows the insured to cancel their trip 2-3 days before their departure date without providing a reason, and can reimburse up to 75% of the total trip cost. This upgrade requires 100% of prepaid, nonrefundable trip costs are insured, and must be purchased 14-30 days from the trip’s initial deposit date.

Following the recent Russian plane crash, we recommend the Cancel For Any Reason benefit if you have any concerns about canceling an upcoming trip due to fear of terrorist threats.
