Can I Cancel Because of a Family Member Not Traveling?

Last Updated:

Most travel insurance plans include trip cancellation coverage.  This will reimburse the traveler pre-paid and non-refunded costs of the trip if it is cancelled for a covered reason listed in the policy.  The most common covered reason is a sickness, injury or death of a family member who is not part of the traveling party.  The definition of a family member is typically broad and can be found in the certificate of insurance.
