Travel insurance gives travelers coverage for unforeseen problems, from a cancelled flight to a serious illness—or in rare cases, even an act of terrorism or the financial default of a travel supplier.

If an illness, accident, or other covered unforeseen circumstance forces a traveler to cancel or interrupt their plans, they can face two potentially significant major financial losses—money invested in nonrefundable pre-payments, and medical expenses that in many instances may not be covered by health insurance.

You never know what might happen on your vacation, but certain disruptive events can be covered by DAN Travel Insurance. Consider these real-life scenarios:

    • Sickness,
    • Injury
    • Death
    • Adverse Weather
    • Job Loss

This is a brief summary of covered events. Additional events may have coverage. For full details, please click the link below to view more information about, or purchase DAN Travel Insurance.
