Subscribe I received this email about a year ago: “Hi Steve, My husband’s in the American Hospital in Cabo San Lucas because he broke his hip. First, thank you for contacting the insurance company for us since our phones weren’t working correctly. We’re in touch with them now. Next, we also contacted my husband’s doctor as you suggested, but we don’t want to use the hospital his doctor wants. We have hospital of choice so we want him sent somewhere else. Can you help us?

Subscribe Hi Steve, Uncle Lenny takes off tomorrow and there are high winds expected. If they cancel his flight and can’t put him on a new flight for some reason is he able to buy a new flight even if it’s a higher cost? Will his travel insurance cover him if there’s only a flight available on a different airline? Hopefully, it won’t be an issue, but he wants to make sure. Thanks, Elizabeth Hi Elizabeth, There’s no need for him to buy a new flight. His airline ticket is a contract and the airline is required to get him to his destination even if there are delays. He’s obligated to take whate ..read more

Subscribe You Need to See a Doctor if You Get Ill or Injured First, all our plans cover Covid the same as any illness. And, if you get ill or injured, you need to see a doctor wherever you are in the world. This includes seeing a doctor while still at home before you cancel your trip. If this sounds redundant, it is. But you’d be surprised by how many people don’t see a doctor. Or, they cancel or interrupt their trip before their doctor tells them they have to that. Next, if you’ve ever called us for help with a potential or actual claim, you’ll recall that we asked you something like “Have yo ..read more

Subscribe An update on my being healed from Long Covid: I am still free of Long Covid and I explained how it happened it in detail here on April 12, 2023. Since then, dozens of people have contacted me telling me that they’ve been taking 5 – 20 grams of Glycine every day with positive results. I take it and also give 1 gram a day to my little dogs. And, by the Grace of God, TripInsuranceStore.com has been busy. That’s why I haven’t written anything here since April 12, 2023. Hi Steve, Thanks for sending me the quotes, but we only want to see Travel Insurance plans that have at least $500,000 ..read more

The travel and hospitality business is recovering, the worst of the pandemic is over, though Covid and other diseases are still very dangerous for a small part of the population.

How Does Re-booking My Trip Affect My Initial Deposit Date?
The TripInsuranceStore.com Blog
by Steve Dasseos
2y ago
Subscribe Prior to Covid, the most common reasons we saw that a traveler would potentially cancel and re-book their trip and not file a trip cancellation claim on their policy were these: Your travel supplier cancelled and they offered you a great deal on a new trip if you switched to the new trip. Or, there was some scheduling conflict and you decided not to pay your Final Payment and instead you cancelled your trip before you were in penalty. Or, you simply chose not to take the trip before you were in penalty. With all our plans, if you were not incurring a financial loss, you could chang ..read more

Subscribe Hi Steve, In “Does a Trip Cancellation plan Cover a Last-Minute Positive Covid Test?”, you said that your plans will cover me if I have a positive Covid test result just before I leave on my trip as long as I see a doctor who tells me that I have to cancel my trip. But, how am I covered if I am denied boarding based on a positive Covid test at the cruise terminal when no doctor is present? Would I be covered for reimbursement by my Trip Cancellation insurance?
