Trip cancellation coverage for Coronavirus is complicated: Insure My Trip

Techstination feature for Thursday, March 12, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     An online site designed to help consumers find and purchase travel insurance has been a very busy place of late.   The Coronavirus has many consumers worried about planning travel for the summer…and even the fall and winter months…and so they are turning to InsureMyTrip.com…where Manager of Marketing and eCommerce Ronni Kenoian says for consumers who booked travel prior to January 21st….it is easier to put in a travel insurance claim…

“If you purchased your travel insurance plan after January 21st…cancel for any reason is your only option to have trip cancellation coverage due to Corona.”

That’s because the risks of the Coronavirus became public knowledge after January 21st.   Of course…buying insurance that lets you cancel your travel plans for any reason…is considerably more expensive.
