How are official travel alerts and travel warnings from the US Department of State covered? If one is issued for my destination, can I cancel the trip and be covered?
Generally, travel alerts and warnings are not a listed covered reason under Travel Guard plans, but this could be coverable depending on the plan you’ve purchased. Please refer to your plan’s Description of Coverage to see it this is listed as a covered reason.
