Travel Insurance, Honeymoons, CFAR, and More
Planning your honeymoon during the COVID-19 outbreak? Something we think you should consider is CFAR Insurance - "cancel for any reason" insurance.
This type of coverage is an add-on to a travel insurance policy that will reimburse you for a portion of your prepaid, forfeited and non-refundable payments towards your trip and deposits. It gives you peace of mind by knowing you can cancel for any reason, even if it's not listed explicitly in your policy. Given recent events and the COVID pandemic, having coverage such as this may give you the peace of mind that you are seeking when planning critical portions of your wedding day.
In general, travel insurance policies generally exclude pandemics and epidemics from benefits such as trip cancellation coverage. As such, CFAR is an increasingly important type of policy add-on you may wish to consider.
The Small Print
There's always the fine print - so pay close attention when researching your travel insurance policy for your honeymoon. Oftentimes, refunds will range anywhere from 50-75%. It's also important to note that buying CFAR insurance is time sensitive, meaning, you generally must purchase this type of coverage within 2-3 weeks of purchasing your trip and general travel insurance policy. Finally, you must also provide on average a minimum of two day's notice to trip cancellations or you forfeit the benefit provided under your CFAR policy.
