What Is Trip Interruption Insurance / Travel Cancellation Insurance?

Trip cancellation insurance in Canada can cover you for up to the full cost of your flight or travel package you purchased if for some reason your trip is disrupted or you're unable to take your trip at all.

The "unforeseen circumstances" that trip cancel insurance covers can vary by travel insurance provider, however, it typically includes events or situations like:

  • There's an unexpected injury or death in your, or your travelling partner's, immediate family
  • A travel warning is issued by the Government of Canada, after you purchase your insurance, recommending that Canadians do not travel to the city, country or town for where you were going (i.e. the previously issued travel warning for Mexico)
  • You miss your flight, due to a schedule interruption of the airline that is providing your transportation for a portion of your trip (note however, not every policy covers flight cancellation insurance or trip cancellation insurance for airline bankruptcy)
  • There is a weather disaster, say during the hurricane travel season, that renders your home uninhabitable or your business inoperative
  • You, or your travelling partner, are summoned to jury duty or subpoenaed as a witness (note however, this may exclude certain law enforcement officers)

Because policies vary, you might also find that you are covered for cancelling your trip if:

  • The people or person who you are going to visit, who would be your host unexpectedly dies or is admitted to hospital
  • You involuntarily lose your job

Why Should I Buy Trip Cancellation Insurance?

It's a good idea to learn about travel cancellation insurance for just about any trip, especially if you've planned that "dream" vacation. Usually these trips are quite expensive (and non-refundable), making the money spent unrecoverable if anything were to happen and you weren't able to go or needed to come home early.

Trip interruption insurance is a good idea simply because weather can always be a problem regardless whether you are travelling out-of-province or travelling out-of-country. If your plane, train or automobile is grounded or diverted due to the weather, you're going to want to make sure you aren't out of luck financially as well. If the weather doesn't strike you, there are some other real-life reasons why you may need travel insurance.

Another option for consideration is an all-inclusive travel insurance coverage plan. All-inclusive coverage plans include trip cancel insurance but also include emergency medical coverage and baggage protection. All-inclusive coverage plans are a great option because you, your trip and your important travel items are safe from any untimely events that may affect the outcome of your trip.
