Travelers looking to save on travel insurance costs should consider $0 Trip Cost insurance, commonly known as post-departure insurance. This plan excludes trip cancellation and limits trip interruption coverage, but protects with other normal coverage included from 12:01 AM on your date of departure.

Travel Insured International ( offers travelers the opportunity to save on travel insurance when their protection needs are primarily for trip delay, baggage delay or baggage loss, emergency accident or sickness medical expense coverage, and other features of comprehensive travel insurance, beginning at 12:01 AM on their date of departure. The cost-saving trip insurance solution is a $0 Trip Cost plan, also known as post-departure insurance, from the Worldwide Trip Protector family of plans from Travel Insured International.

How Much Can You Save with $0 Trip Cost Coverage?

Whether your choice is Travel Insured's signature Worldwide Trip Protector plan, a Worldwide Trip Protector Lite or Lite Expanded plan geared to budget-minded and family travelers, or a Worldwide Trip Protector Gold plan designed for upscale trips, your premium savings with $0 Trip Cost coverage can be substantial.

Example 1: The insurance premium with any of the plans selected for $0 Trip Cost coverage is less than half the price of a plan that includes Trip Cancellation coverage when the Trip Cost per person is between $1,001 and $1,500.
Example 2: The insurance premium with any of the plans selected for $0 Trip Cost is almost 50% less than the price of a plan that includes Trip Cancellation coverage when the Trip Cost per person is between $501 and $1,000.

Why Buy $0 Trip Cost Coverage?

Buying a $0 Trip Cost plan can save you money in certain travel situations:

  • Last-minute vacation travel: when your need for Trip Cancellation coverage is lessened by a short timeframe between booking and scheduled departure.
  • When your primary need is for medical coverage: Remember that on international trips most U.S. health care plans and Medicare do not provide coverage.
  • Guaranteed supplier refund or waiver: when your travel supplier includes a guarantee that your prepaid Trip Cost will be reimbursed if you are forced to cancel prior to departure.
  • When you want to save money on travel insurance and prefer to afford the risk that you will lose prepaid Trip Costs if you must cancel without Trip Cancellation coverage.

What's Not Included in $0 Trip Cost Coverage?

A $0 Trip Cost plan includes the same benefits and coverage limits specified in your selected type of Worldwide Trip Protector plan with two exceptions:

  • Trip Cancellation coverage is not included and Trip Interruption is limited to $1,000 maximum cost for return-air only.
  • Trip Delay protection while going to and through the airport to your scheduled

departure is included.
