    My upcoming one for September does although that is because I bought it back the first week of January before all the insurance companies wrote that into the policies.

    The widely held policy of insurance companies: Deny the claim first, THEN investigate it.

    Firstly there are tons if agents. The perceived decline came from expedia and the like. People are told they can diy but they miss so much opportunity. The biggest thing is 99% of ta's don't charge you anything they are paid by the supplier. And your paying the same or more to do it yourself.

    And how much it costs differs greatly based on package ie cruise or flights and hotel etc.


    Really depends on policy. We had 2 cruises booked at the beginning of this bs for our anniversary and we got covered completly. They even refunded premium.

    I previously attached my document on my plan purchased before all of this, but I also checked TravelSafe.com on new sales. Still covered.
    There are several other possibilities, discussed at TravelSafe FAQ | COVID-19 & TravelSafe Insurance FAQs
