Will travel insurance allow me to cancel my trip out of fear of traveling?

Last Updated:

If a traveler is scared to travel due to the recent Russian Metrojet plane crash, we recommend purchasing a policy with the Cancel For Any Reason benefit.

Canceling due to fear of travel is not a covered reason to cancel a trip. However, policies with the Cancel For Any Reason benefit allow a traveler to cancel their trip for any reason and be reimbursed up to 75% of their trip cost.

In order to be eligible for this benefit, a policy must be purchased within 14-30 days of the first trip deposit. Additionally, the entire trip cost must be insured. This benefit typically increases the price of the insurance policy by 40%.

This information may vary based on the travel insurance 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!
