Personal Experience

Our licensed insurance expert Neil Gargis says:

Personally, whenever I travel, I always purchase TravelSafe cancel for any reason coverage. In March 2019, I had to cancel a trip due to a reason that’s normally not covered by travel insurance. Cancel for any reason helped me recoup 75% of the cost. I also found the claims process to be straightforward and hassle-free.


Pricing varies widely depending on where you’re traveling, the age of travelers, your state of residence and other factors.

Sample pricing below is based on an insurance policy for two adults, ages 40 and 45, who reside in Virginia, are traveling to Greece for one week, and paying a total of $8,000 for the vacation cost. Pricing is the cost for both travelers (not per person).

  • $322 Basic Plan
  • $420 Classic Plan (+$190 for cancel for any reason add-on)
