  • Protect Against Nature’s Quirks with Insurance

    Filed Under: Blogging

The snowiest winter on record for the nation’s capital is on course. Airports have been shut, offices closed, and the city brought to a virtual standstill. If you were going to travel to that part of the world, now is the time that your trip cancellation insurance will come in handy.

Trip cancellation insurance, which comes packaged with many travel insurance plans, is especially useful for travel to certain parts of the world during winter. It offers relief against cancellation of flights, closure of airports, and cancellation due to the death of an immediate family member. The reasons that are covered by trip cancellation insurance vary by plan.

When you are forced to cancel your trip due to a covered reason, remember that you will need documentation for your reason. So, if it’s the death of a family member, you will need a cope of the death certificate. Even if you purchase “Cancel for Any Reason” coverage, you will still need some proof of your situation.

Most plans do not cover cancellation “just because I felt like it.” Remember that the earlier you purchase trip cancellation insurance, the longer you will be covered. Purchasing the plan as soon as you buy the air tickets might also give you extra coverage, depending on the plan.

Travel tip: In winter, it is always best to purchase trip cancellation insurance for travel that will pass through the snow-friendly regions of the United States.
