Getting CFAR coverage
Most traditional travel insurance policies do not allow travelers to cancel a because of Covid-19 fears. The Cancel for Any Reason add-on is really the only way for a traveler to recoup some of their pre-paid, non-refundable trip costs if they decide not to travel because of a spike in cases.
However, not all trips are eligible for this add-on. There are some requirements that need to be met. InsureMyTrip has a new tool that is making it easier for travelers to find out if they are eligible for CFAR.
Cancel for Any Reason Coverage:
Cancel For Any Reason (also known as: CFAR) is and optional upgrade. CFAR offers the most trip cancellation flexibility and is the only option available to cover Covid-19 travel fear. Full terms of coverage will be listed in state-specific policy. If eligibility requirements are met, reimbursement is typically 50% - 75% of the insured prepaid non-refundable trip cost if all eligibility requirements are met (available in most states).
Note: coverages are governed by the specific plan certificate. Traditional travel insurance does not offer cancellation coverage for fear of travel, whether related to COVID-19 or not. Cancel For Any Reason is required.
