If my Visa application is denied or delayed, am I covered to cancel my trip?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

Standard Trip Cancellation policies typically do not consider a denied or delayed visa application as a covered reason to cancel your trip.

More Detail

If you are concerned about a denied or delayed visa impacting your planned trip, we recommend purchasing a policy with the optional Cancel for Any Reason upgrade. This benefit allows you to cancel your trip for any reason not otherwise covered under standard Trip Cancellation coverage.

Cancel For Any Reason is a time-sensitive benefit that typically must be purchased within 14-21 days of your initial booking date, and allows you to cancel up to 2-3 days prior to your scheduled departure. This benefit requires you insure 100% of your prepaid and non-refundable trip costs, and can reimburse up to 75% of your trip costs.

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