Trip Interruption provides reimbursement for prepaid and non-refundable trip payments if a portion of a trip is missed, or the traveler must return home early due to unforeseen circumstances, including illness, injury, or death.
The Company will reimburse up to the Maximum Limit shown in the Schedule if the Insured’s Trip is interrupted after the scheduled Departure Date and time for an Unforeseen Covered Event listed below. The benefit will be limited to the:
