Insurance includes 100% of insured trip cost, plus coverage for 6-hour or more travel delay (up to $600), baggage loss (up to $2000), baggage delay (up to $500), medical expenses (up to $25,000), $25,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment and a few other emergency provisions. Also covered are hurricane or inclement weather causing delay or cancellation of travel. Coverage may apply to airfare purchased as part of a package, through a travel agency or on your own when canceled due to covered reasons.

If you’re purchasing a package, insurance can be a good idea. Once added, the insurance is non-refundable after 14 days. Those traveling in “hurricane season”, particularly late August thru September, should carefully consider insurance. Travel delays or disruptions often occur during this time of year. Note: For an alternative insurance, try InsureMyTrip.
