What is financial default?
Financial Default can provide Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption coverage in the event of a travel supplier’s complete cessation of operations due to financial circumstances, whether or not bankruptcy is filed.
Financial Default provides reimbursement for unused prepaid and non-refundable trip payments and deposits if a trip is cancelled or interrupted due to the travel supplier’s complete suspension of operations due to financial circumstances, whether or not bankruptcy is filed. Travel suppliers include tour operators, cruise lines, airlines and hotels.
Depending on the insurance provider, this coverage may be time-sensitive and require you to purchase a policy within 14-21 days of your initial trip booking. It may also require a 10 to 21 day wait period after the policy is purchased before this benefit goes into effect.
