Select International Protection Plan
Life happens. Sometimes an unexpected illness or injury sidelines you or an immediate family member. With the Select International Protection Plan, these setbacks won’t force you to sacrifice your travel investment. You can cancel, for covered reasons, up until the time of departure for up to a 100% refund of your non-refundable costs, with appropriate documentation. All cancellations must be in writing.
In addition to covering you for pre-trip cancellation, the Select International Protection Plan also offers benefits for trip interruption, travel delay, missed connection, baggage, accident and sickness medical expense, and more. See the plan documents below for complete benefit details and exclusions.
Special plans and pricing, including optional Cancel for Any Reason coverage, are available for Student groups traveling together. Please see this Plan Document for complete details and pricing.
Our Advice to You:
Why Purchase the Select International Protection Plan with Optional Cancel for Any Reason Coverage?
Cancel for Any Reason coverage is not a stand-alone travel protection plan, but an optional add-on coverage that expands trip cancellation coverage to include canceling a trip for any reason. The additional coverage must be added to the Select International Protection Plan at the time of original plan purchase and within 10 days of the date your initial trip deposit is received. Additional terms apply (see below). The Select International Protection Plan is an extensive plan that includes trip cancellation coverage for certain covered reasons, such as illness or specified employment reasons, in addition to many other benefits. While trip cancellation coverage may offer 100% reimbursement, you must provide documentation acceptable to the insurance provider to support the reason for your cancellation. Canceling solely due to fear of a pandemic does not apply. When you purchase CFAR, you can then cancel your trip for any reason.
How does the Select International Protection Plan with CFAR differ from the Select International Protection Plan?
Both plans have the same overall coverage including benefits for baggage loss, trip interruption, medical coverage, and more. But only CFAR coverage allows you to cancel for any reason not already covered under the plan. Examples of some unforeseen events:
- Unexpected illness of a friend, pet, or non-immediate member of the family
- Changes in financial circumstances
- COVID-19 or similar
While CFAR offers much broader coverage for cancellations, there is an additional cost for this optional coverage and there are some restrictions. CFAR must be purchased within 10 days of the date your initial trip deposit is received and at the time of the original plan purchase. You must have paid Select International Tours the full cost for all non-refundable trip costs prior to your cancellation. Cancellations must be at least 48 hours before your scheduled departure. CFAR is not available to residents of NY State. CFAR offers reimbursement of up to 75% of your insured, non-refundable trip costs. Even with the added cost, if you’re booking an expensive trip and there is a chance you may have to cancel, this optional benefit can help provide coverage should you need to cancel for any reason not already covered under the plan.
Select International Tours or its partners & agents are not responsible for non-refundable payments, canceled trips or flights, lost or damaged luggage, medical expenses, or trip interruption. Considering this, we ask that all Travelers consider purchasing travel protection to help protect themselves and their travel investment. We offer a plan from Travel Insured International. The cost of the Travel Protection Plan that we offer is based on the published package price. Additional services such as single supplements, deviation fees, late charges, airfare upgrades, or extended stays may increase the cost of the plan. Please see attached price list. The Select International Protection Plan gives you the option to purchase Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) coverage at an additional cost for broader protection of your financial travel investment. With a CFAR plan, you may cancel for any reason up to 48 hours prior to your scheduled departure and receive reimbursement of up to 75% of your non-refundable, insured trip costs. Payment for CFAR must be included within 10 days of the date your initial trip deposit is received and at the time of initial plan purchase. Additional terms apply. CFAR coverage cannot be purchased by New York State residents.
NY State residents may purchase the Select International Protection Plan, which has the same general coverage as Select International Protection Plan with CFAR but allows you to cancel only due to specific covered reasons listed in the plan summary. The Select International Protection Plan may be purchased at any time but some time-sensitive benefits may not be available, such as the waiver for pre-existing conditions. All plan payments are non-refundable after the 14-day free look period. Your coverage ends upon the completion of your trip.
