Unfortunately, your concern is not a covered reason for cancellation under any policy. The only way to have some coverage would be to buy a plan that has a Cancel For Any Reason rider. Cancel for any reason would allow her to "change her mind" as you have described and receive a partial reimbursement under the insurance policy. There are 3 conditions that MUST be met to purchase a Cancel For Any Reason Rider, as follows: Purchase the policy within 14-30 days of Initial Trip Payment (policy specific); Insure ALL prepaid and non-refundable travel expenses prior to departure; Trip must be canceled more than 2 days prior to departure date. If you meet all 3 of these conditions, most of the policies will reimburse you 75% of your trip costs, unless otherwise noted. The Cancel For Any Reason will show under its own box. Please make sure to click on the underlined phrase to view the requirements to qualify for this option. If you decide to buy this Rider, make sure to click on the box near Cancel For Any Reason and hit the 'buy' button at the top or bottom of the quote. Please note that these policies are State-specific.
Will cancellation due to death of a parent be covered?
Yes the unforeseen death of a non-traveling family member is covered reason for trip cancellation.
