What is Trip Interruption?

Trip Interruption provides reimbursement for prepaid and non-refundable trip payments if a portion of a trip is missed, or the traveler must return home early due to unforeseen circumstances, including illness, injury, or death.

Trip Interruption is a post-departure benefit that can reimburse a traveler’s unused trip costs if they need to interrupt their trip for a covered reason. The most common covered reason is unforeseen illness, injury, or death of the traveler, a traveling companion, or a non-traveling family member. Other common covered reasons include terrorism, inclement weather, or a natural disaster, among others.

Trip Interruption will cover between 100% and 200% of the total trip cost, depending on the policy. This benefit may cover more than the total trip cost because it can cover additional transportation expenses incurred to return home. Some policies with Trip Interruption only provide coverage for a return flight home.

Please be aware that coverage and eligibility requirements for this benefit differ by policy. The tables below show the providers that offer Trip Interruption coverage.
