Travel Insurance Q & As

Question 5 of 42 in Overview
What is not covered?
What is not covered can be as important as what is covered. It is recommended that you examine your coverage carefully and learn what is not covered. For example:

1. Cancellation for war is probably not covered

2. Cancellation for terrorism may be covered if your destination has experienced recent (often within 30 days) terror attacks

3. Cancellation because of bad weather is likely to be covered only if the weather is extremely threatening. If airlines have stopped flying to the area, for example.

4. Cancellation because of an outbreak of disease will likely not be covered.
