What is Trip Interruption?

Trip Interruption offers coverage if a trip is disrupted or cut short due to unforeseen circumstances such as sicknesses, severe weather conditions, or other eligible events that are out of the traveler's control. Trip Interruption Coverage typically covers expenses such as the cost of additional transportation, accommodation, and other expenses incurred because of the interruption. The exact coverage and benefits vary depending on the insurance policy.

Is Trip Interruption necessary?

Whether Trip Interruption insurance is necessary or not depends on several factors, including the type of trip you're taking, the cost of the trip, and your personal risk tolerance. The Trip Interruption benefit can provide coverage for unexpected events such as sickness, weather-related cancellations, and other eligible events that can cause you to interrupt your trip.

Trip Interruption also allows travelers to rejoin their trip after an interruption has occurred.

In general, having a trip interruption is a personal decision that should be based on the traveler's specific needs and circumstances. However, it's always a good idea to consider trip interruption coverage, especially if the trip involves a significant investment of time and resources. This can help to protect against financial losses if the trip is interrupted for a covered reason.
