Trip Protection

Plenty can happen to derail a trip before departure or while traveling. Purchasing coverage soon after booking a trip can help maximize coverage – and buying Trip Protection is quick and easy.  Plans can cover:

  • Trip cancellations, interruptions, and delays
  • Medical expenses, including emergency medical evacuation
  • Delayed, lost, or stolen baggage
  • Cancelling for work reasons or for any reason (only on select plans)

The plans also provide non-insurance travel services like 24-hour medical and legal assistance, concierge and business assistance, and non-medical emergency evacuations.
