In most cases airlines will not reimburse unused tickets. Because of this, many individuals are purchasing Trip Cancellation coverage that also includes medical and medical evacuation coverage. Trip Cancellation rates are based on the dollar amount of the ticket and/or any money that will be lost if the trip is cancelled, as well as the age of the insured. Generally, such plans also include coverage for trip delay, lost luggage, return of mortal remains, etc. We have a person who is under 50 years old who is purchasing a ticket for $600 and paying $61 for the coverage. Therefore, he has full medical evacuation coverage, medical coverage up to $100,000, and he will be reimbursed $600 if his trip is cancelled.

There is also the possibility of insuring teams on a Trip Cancellation with Medical/Medical Evacuation plan. If you are interested in this kind of team coverage and/or individual coverage, please contact GNI.
