Academic Explorer Trip Cancellation

If your main concern is the unforeseen keeping you from going on your trip, then the Academic Explorer Trip Cancellation plan is the option for you. This plan includes a robust list of covered perils, such as cancellation due to a covered delay that causes you to lose 50 percent or more of the time spent in your destination (available to residents of most states). This benefit offers reimbursement for the pre-paid, non-refundable trip cost that you would otherwise lose. If you would like a plan that offers other post departure benefits such as trip interruption and emergency medical expense reimbursement, please see the Academic Explorer All Inclusive or Cancellation and Interruption plans.
