Trip Cancellation—Ideal for Winter Travellers

This winter, over 13 million Canadians will vacation abroad. With more disposable income to spend than in previous years, on average, they’ll be spending $3,700. What’s more, 80% have planned these vacations 3 to 6 months in advance. But as you know, a lot can happen in that period of time whether it’s health, job or weather related.

Trip Cancellation offers great protection for your vacation investment, especially when you consider this recent claim:
 
75-year-old Marge and 46-year-old Julie purchased a 1-week river cruise through Europe. They also extended their trip and purchased a week of land tours, accommodation and rail travel. However, one month prior to departure, Marge fell and fractured her hip. Due to her injury, both women cancelled the trip. The accommodation charges were 100% refundable and both women claimed for the unused non-refundable portions of the remainder of their travel expenses.
