This benefit relates to Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption only.
Coverage is provided in the event of a complete cessation of either a common carrier or travel supplier, or your accommodation at your destination is rendered uninhabitable by weather. In order to be eligible for this benefit, the traveler must purchase the policy before the storm is named. Most policies also require the traveler be delayed by weather for a specific time period before becoming eligible.
We will reimburse You, up to the Maximum Benefit Amount shown in the Schedule of Benefits, for the amount of the unused non-refundable prepaid Payments or Deposits for the Travel Arrangements You purchased or were assessed for Your Trip, when You cancel Your Trip for a covered Unforeseen reason.
Trip Cancellation must be due to one of the following Unforeseen reasons:
h) Strike that causes complete cessation of services for at least 12 consecutive hours of the Common Carrier on which You are scheduled to travel;
i) Inclement Weather that causes complete cessation of services for at least 12 consecutive hours of the Common Carrier on which You are scheduled to travel;
j) mechanical breakdown of the aircraft on which You are scheduled to travel that causes a cancellation or delay of Your flight for at least 12 consecutive hours provided no alternative flights are available;
k) a government-mandated shutdown of an airport or air traffic control system due to a Natural Disaster or a Terrorist Incident;
t) a cancellation of Your Trip within 24 hours of Your Scheduled Departure Date and time if Your Trip departure or destination city is under a hurricane warning issued by the NOAA National Hurricane Center provided the cancellation occurs more than 14 days following Your Effective Date of coverage for Trip Cancellation;
u) mandatory evacuation ordered by local government authorities at Your Trip destination due to a Natural Disaster or a hurricane named after the Effective Date of Your coverage. You must have 50% or less of Your Trip length remaining at the time the mandatory evacuation ends in order to cancel or interrupt Your Trip and for this benefit to be payable;
v) a cancellation of Your Trip if Your arrival on the Trip is delayed and causes You to lose 50% or more of the scheduled Trip duration due to the reasons covered under the Travel Delay Benefit;
