Jamaica has long been a popular tourist destination thanks to its beautiful beaches and interesting culture. But a recent increase in the probability of violence in the country has prompted the U.S. to issue a travel alert for Jamaica. So if you are booking a trip to the country, make certain you protect your investment with trip cancellation insurance.

According to CNN.com, criminal gang activity has increased in Jamaica, and the government is readying troops to curb these criminals. This makes for a potentially very dangerous scenario for citizens ans tourists alike.

As such, you may no longer feel comfortable staying in Jamaica. But cancelling airfare and hotel accommodations can be quite costly, as most airlines and hotels do not offer refunds or substitutions.

However, if you have added trip cancellation insurance to your international travel insurance policy, you can cancel trips for any reason with as little as 24 hours notice, without incurring penalties. You can be reimbursed for the cost of your flight and hotel, and this even works with non-refundable flights. The situation in Jamaica makes it important to protect any travel investment you may make in the country, and the best way to do that is through trip cancellation insurance.
