  • Terror Attack Warnings Illustrate the Value of Trip Cancellation Insurance

You may have recently heard that in France, the government has issued a travel warning regarding the United Kingdom. Due to terror threats to the country, France is cautioning citizens who planned to travel there, leaving the travel plans of many citizens in jeopardy. Because you can never predict when such a warning might come, it is a good idea to always prepare for every trip with trip cancellation insurance.

While the government warnings do not prohibit citizens form traveling, it will certainly discourage a number of them from doing so, simply because of personal safety concerns. For many people, when the option is playing it conservative and safe or taking a risk, safety is the best choice.

What would you do in this situation? Would you cancel your trip and accommodations on short notice? If so, it is important that you have already purchased trip cancellation insurance, otherwise you will lose much if not all of your travel arrangements, including flight, hotel rooms, entertainment, and anything else you may have planned in advance.

However, in most instances if you were to cancel on short notice, you will lose all or early all of the money you have spent booking it. You’d lose the thousands of dollars invested in your trip, with nothing at all to show for it, just because you chose to take the safe route of traveling during a warning period. This is why trip cancellation policies exist: to give people a chance to protect the thousands of dollars they spend on travel when unforeseen events arise..
