What happens if you have planned and paid for a vacation, and then receive a phone call out of the blue that convinces you that going on this trip is not the best idea? Perhaps a work or family situation is involved, or someone you know has just returned from a trip to that destination and worries that you will be caught up in some kind of problem there.
Cancel for Any Reason travel insurance is expensive, but it can help you recoup some of your losses if you have to cancel a vacation for a reason not covered by any trip protection plan or trip cancellation insurance you have purchased.
If you would like the freedom to call off your trip 48 hours before its start date, for any reason (including "I have a bad feeling about this"), Cancel for Any Reason coverage might be a good option for you.
You'll need to plan ahead if you want to buy this type of travel insurance, as insurers impose purchase deadlines and other rules for policies with Cancel for Any Reason coverage.
