Will work come between you and your vacation?

We strongly recommend trip cancellation insurance because it protects you, and us, in case of an unexpected cancellation. The short story is that you get reimbursed and we don’t have to spend time trying to recover your money from our colleagues overseas. By the time you go on your trip, a number of transactions have taken place to ensure that your vacation stands out as one of the most memorable experiences of your life. There may be instances when we can’t guarantee a full recovery of your losses in case of an unexpected cancellation.

There are many insurance companies in existence and each one differs in the services that they offer. We work closely with a company called Travelex and we’ve been very impressed by their prompt and courteous service.

Until now, Travelex never really covered cancellations for business reasons. So, when the following message appeared in my mailbox, I was delighted to pass the news along to you.

The NEW Travelex Business Upgrade is now available!

This upgrade adds additional Trip Cancellation/Trip Interruption coverage to our TraveLite and Travel Plus insurance plans for the following unforeseen business and military reasons for only $28 per person.

You can now recover up to 100% of your insured trip cost due to trip cancellation or 150% of your insured trip cost due to trip interruption when you, your spouse and/or your traveling companion who has also purchased the Business Upgrade:

* are required to work during the covered trip;
* have a pre-approved military leave revoked;
* experience a military re-assignment;
* have a business location deemed unsuitable for business by fire, vandalism, burglary or natural disaster; or
* are directly involved in an acquisition or merger of an employer.

$500,000 in Flight Accident Protection is also
included in the Travelex Business Upgrade!

Please Note:
- The Travelex insurance plan and Business Upgrade must be purchased within 21 days of your initial trip deposit.
- The Business Upgrade must be purchased for all travelers, including children, in order for them to receive coverage.
