Am I covered if there’s a death in the family while I’m on holiday?

If, unfortunately, a death occurs in your family while you are on vacation, you may be eligible to make a claim for the need to end your trip early, as long as the death was unexpected and unforeseen.

If you find yourself in a situation where you need to return home before your scheduled return flight due to:

  • The unforeseen death of a close relative
  • The unforeseen, imminent death of a close relative
  • An unforeseen serious accident or illness of a close relative

Your travel insurance policy may provide cover for situations where you have to cut your trip short or experience trip interruption. However, it is important to review your policy limits to understand the extent of coverage provided.
