Background

On March 16, 2020, the White House and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a statement urging people to avoid discretionary travel. By the end of March, governors in most states instituted stay-at-home or shelter-in-place orders that further limited the ability to travel.

These orders forced travelers to cancel trips that were purchased months before. Many travelers were persuaded to purchase trip insurance to protect them in the case of trip interruption or cancellation. However, some travel insurance companies are now denying travel insurance policy claims for COVID-19 related trip cancellations.

These travel insurance policy claims denial have left travelers saddled with travel expenses for trips they could no longer take.
