Academic Explorer Cancellation and Interruption

The Academic Explorer Cancellation and Interruption plan provides specific coverages that protect your monetary investment in your academic travel plans. Trip cancellation benefits provide reimbursement of your pre-paid and non-refundable expenses if you are forced to cancel your trip prior to departure due to unforeseen covered reasons. There are also trip interruption benefits if you are forced to cut your trip short after you have departed, again, due to a covered reason. In this case, reimbursement would be for the unused portion of your covered trip cost.

In some states, additional options for Interruption For Any Reason and Cancellation For any Reason are offered, provided you meet the necessary requirements.

Other benefits include:

  • Lost Baggage
  • Baggage Delay (if your bags are delayed for more than 12 hours)
  • Travel Delay (if you are delayed for more than 6 hours due to a covered reason)

This plan does not include emergency medical benefits or medical evacuation and repatriation. If you would like a plan with those coverages, please see the Academic Explorer All Inclusive plans.
