FAQ: Can travel insurance cover trip cancellation due to a death in my family?

Yes. All of our plans include Trip Cancellation coverage that reimburses your trip costs if you cancel for a covered reason. One of those reasons is a traveling or non-traveling family member being hospitalized or passing away due to an illness or injury and you are unable to take your trip.

It’s very important that you understand who is considered a “family member” when you buy travel insurance with this in mind. See our definition of Family Member for more details.

Pro tip: The death of a family member is also a covered reason for our Trip Interruption benefit, in case trouble strikes back home during your trip.
