Published by July 30, 2009

The iTravelInsured July newsletter discussed trip cancellation coverage. 

To assist you in providing accurate information to your clients, here are some of the most common misconceptions travelers have regarding travel insurance:

Trip Cancellation – coverage is not available through credit card companies or any other insurance – it is only available through a travel insurance policy that provides this specific benefit

Travel insurance that provides trip cancellation cover can reimburse travelers for pre-paid, non-refundable trip payments when unable to travel.  Each plan offering cancellation cover will have a specific set of covered reasons for cancellation.  Always refer to the certificate of insurance for details.
