With the ZIKA virus concerns in Mexico, and me going to visit my pregnant daughter there, I was unhappy that the coverage did not allow me to cancel my trip so that she could come home to the States immediately.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. The only benefit that can be used to cancel a trip due to the fear of contracting Zika virus is Cancel for Any Reason.

    Cancel for Any Reason coverage typically requires the following requirements (varies by plan):

    1) Purchase within 10-30 days of your initial trip deposit
    2) Insure 100% of your pre-paid, non-refundable trip cost
    3) Cancel the trip 2 or more days prior to departure

    While Cancel for Any Reason does give you the flexibility to cancel your trip due to an increased fear of Zika, it does not protect 100% of your trip cost. Depending upon the plan, Cancel for Any Reason benefit will reimburse 50%, 70%, or 75% of your insured trip cost.

    Please call us at 800-487-4772 if you have any questions about insuring against Zika related events, or the Cancel For Any Reason benefit.

Fortunately, I did not have to use the coverage. However, it felt good to have the peace of mind of having the coverage. Compared to the coverage offered by the cruise line, the cost was terrific and well worth the money.

The thing about good insurance is not needing it. I had good peace of mind. The proof of excellent insurance is when you make a claim and how it is handled. I hope I never need excellent insurance, but excellent piece of mind if much better.

Purchased for adequate coverage at low price, never needed to file a claim so cannot speak to how satisfied I would be if the plan were actually needed.
