Trip Interruption Insurance

What is it? And What Benefits Does it Provide?

It is safe to say that I travel internationally more than the typical person.   On top of that, I am usually traveling with more than a dozen people coming from all parts of North America on my small group tours to Europe and Peru.  Over the years I have seen travelers trips interrupted for a variety of reasons such as snowy weather, lost luggage, loss of a job, erupting volcanoes, hurricanes, floods, strikes, mechanical issues with planes, missed flights, lost passports, and illness of relatives, among others.  Fortunately, these issues don't occur as frequently as you might think, but they do happen.  Let's face it, going on vacation is expensive and you might want to protect your vacation from being a total disaster and there is a way to do that - with trip interruption insurance.
