Generali travel insurance covers many unexpected events that could change your travel plans. It does not cover everything that could happen. We’ll cover the basics of what Generali’s plan covers, but it’s important to read the Description of Coverage to fully understand coverage. Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, and Travel Delay are all common reasons why vacations are canceled. Sickness, Injury, and Death: If you, a traveling companion or your service animal pass away or get sick or injured after you purchase your plan, must be treated in person by a physician and cannot travel according to a physician, travel insurance may cover your trip. Coverage is also available if a non-traveling family member is hospitalized or passes away after you purchase your plan, deeming you unable to travel. Mandatory Evacuation: On the Outer Banks, we’re no strangers to the threat of hurricanes. If your destination is evacuated due to adverse weather or a natural disaster, like a hurricane, coverage is available.
