Summer vacation time is also family reunion time and Travel Insured has updated our group protection plans just in time for your clients’ mid-year rendezvous. It is now possible for family groups of 10 or more to travel on the same Group Lite or Group Deluxe plan. Group coverage provides affordable yet strong protection with the requirement that all the group members travel on the same dates and itinerary. They need not, however, be originating from the same airport if headed to the same destination on the same day. The plans can be sold as either inclusive, requiring all members to buy the coverage, or voluntary with each member deciding to accept or decline.
It is important for family groups to consider a Cancel for Any Reason option, which must be purchased within 14 days of the initial trip deposit. It is especially valuable if the family reunion is going to be a destination wedding. Here’s why: a disagreement among members that results in someone deciding not to take the trip is not a covered reason for Trip Cancellation. The Cancel for Any Reason option allows a member to cancel up to two days before the scheduled departure date and obtain up to 75% of the prepaid non-refundable trip cost in reimbursement.
