If I need to cancel my trip for Work Reasons, am I covered?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

Yes, policies including the Cancel For Work Reasons benefit can provide reimbursement for your trip costs if you must cancel your trip because your pre-approved vacation time is revoked and you are required to work. 

More Detail

Cancel for Work Reasons is a benefit that can provide coverage if your previously approved time off has been revoked by your employer. In order to be eligible for this benefit, you must submit supporting documentation, such as a notarized statement from your employer or a company officer.

Some plans may also cover self-employed workers. If you are self-employed you would be required to submit proof of self-employment and your requirement to work. To determine if your plan offers Cancel for Work Reasons coverage, please check the Policy Detail or policy certificate. A policy will specifically state if it covers self-employed workers.

This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. Please review the policy certificate to verify coverage.
