Trip cancellation insurance will protect you if you need to cancel your trip before your departure date, provided you cancel for a covered reason. Covered reasons typically include illness, injury or death of a family member or traveling companion, or your own illness, injury or death. Most policies specify that you (or the ill or injured party) must see a physician and obtain a letter from that physician stating that you are too ill or disabled to travel.
