What Does Travel Insurance Cover?

Travel insurance policies can package together a number of valuable benefits. Work with a travel insurance agent, who can help you identify the coverage types you need and price shop the available options for you.

Look for these top coverage options.

Trip cancellation insurance

You don’t book a trip with the intention of canceling it, but unexpected illness, injury, family member sickness, jury duty and more could derail plans. Trip cancellation insurance reimburses you 100% for money you lose in pre-paid, non-refundable deposits if you have to cancel for a reason listed in the policy.

If Covid is a concern, you can find travel insurance policies that cover Covid-related trip cancellation if you contract the virus right before the trip.
