Cancel for any reason coverage is a type of trip cancellation coverage. It’s also one of the primary reasons travelers purchase travel insurance. Here’s the important part: standard trip cancellation coverage doesn’t include canceling for an outbreak of a pandemic like COVID.
With Cancel for any reason coverage, or CFAR, travelers can cancel their trips for any reason, including COVID. The coverage reimburses you up to 75% of your initial trip costs if you have to cancel a trip.
See Cancel for any Reason (CFAR) Travel Insurance Coverage for a full explanation.
