Am I covered to cancel my trip if my family member contracts to Norovirus?

Last Updated:

If one of your family member contracts the Norovirus prior to your departure, you may be covered by your policy’s Trip Cancellation benefit.

More Detail

Trip Cancellation can reimburse all of your prepaid and non-refundable trip expenses if you need to cancel for a covered reason. Common covered reasons include illness, injury, or death of you, a traveling companion, or a family member.

Each policy has its own definition for who is considered a covered family member, but it generally includes children, parents, step-parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, step-siblings, aunts, uncles, and in-laws. Cousins are usually excluded.
