Post Departure Trip Interruption
Post Departure Trip Interruption coverage provides a benefit up to the maximum amount shown on the Benefit Overview Matrix or Your Letter of Confirmation, if your trip is interrupted or must be discontinued for any of the following reasons:
• If, due to a covered Illness or Injury, which is so disabling as to cause a reasonable person to delay, cancel, or interrupt their Trip, We will pay for additional transportation expenses needed to reach the scheduled termination point of Your Trip or to travel from the place Your Trip was interrupted to the place where You can rejoin Your Trip. In the event You cannot continue your trip, We will pay for Your and Your Traveling Companion’s return home from Your current location outside of the United States.
• If You are diagnosed with or receive a positive test for an infectious disease that delays Your return to Your home destination due to restrictions placed on travel due to a possible exposure or Quarantine, and as a result, are unable to use Your previously booked return travel to Your home location, We will pay for Your return home from Your current location outside of the United States.
• If You are the victim of a Felonious Assault during Your Period of Coverage and You no longer can complete Your trip or program, We will pay for You to return home from Your current location outside of the United States.
For all instances named above, We will pay up to the amount shown on the Benefit Overview Matrix for the cost of a one-way economy class air fare ticket for You and Your Travel Companion to reach your destination. Amounts paid will not exceed the Maximum Benefit as stated in the Benefit Overview Matrix or the cost of economy airfare by the most direct route on the next available carrier, less any refunds or credits paid to You for unused tickets.
• If You must Quarantine while covered under this Certificate because You are diagnosed with or receive a positive test for an infectious disease, coverage for the reasonable expenses of lodging and meals necessarily incurred as a result of a Quarantine, will be covered up to the amount shown on the Schedule of Benefits under the Post Departure Trip Interruption/Lodging & Incidentals Benefit.
For the purposes of this benefit, Quarantine means Your strict isolation imposed by a Government authority or Physician to prevent the spread of an infectious disease. An embargo preventing You from entering a country is not a Quarantine.
For the purposes of this coverage, the following definitions apply:
Felonious Assault is an act of violence against You requiring medical treatment in a Hospital.
Traveling Companion is a person traveling with You and who shares the same accommodations and itinerary as You.
