Financial Default for Travel Suppliers

Travel suppliers can experience financial issues in unstable economic times, causing some suppliers to partially or completely suspend operations. WorldTrips would like to remind you of the importance of purchasing travel protection insurance for reasons such as Financial Default.

The Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption benefits included in many of our travel protection insurance plans provide coverage for Financial Default occurring more than 14 days after your effective date. You must purchase a travel protection plan with coverage for Financial Default prior to the date when Financial Default became foreseeable in order to be eligible for coverage.
