Will travel insurance cover an airline change fee?

Last Updated:

Yes, some travel insurance policies will cover an airline imposed reissue fee in the event you must reschedule your trip for a covered reason.

Under the Trip Cancellation benefit of travel insurance, some policies will reimburse you for the reissue fee charge by the airline. This reimbursement is typically limited to $75 – $300.

In order for coverage to be available in the event your airline charges you a reissue fee, you must have included 100% of your prepaid and non-refundable trip expenses under your policy, including your airfare.

Squaremouth recommends travelers check out the full cancellation coverage that is included in their policy. Every policy has a certificate that outlines benefit amounts and defines covered events under each benefit.
