Why would I need "cancel for any reason" in travel insurance?

Published by Chris Harvey November 21, 2008

Each travel insurance policy has a list of  “covered” reasons for trip cancellation and trip interruption. If you cancel your trip for any reason not otherwise covered by the policy, a “cancel for any reason” benefit would be required for reimbursment. Please note, a reduced benefit is paid and other conditions may apply such as purchasing within a advantage period, insuring the full prepaid trip cost and canceling within 2 days prior to the scheduled departure date.
