Orion Travel Insurance, a CAA-owned company will continue to cover existing and new trip cancellation policies
THORNHILL, ON, March 6, 2020 /CNW/ - As Canadian officials continue to monitor the spread of the Coronavirus at home and abroad, Orion Travel Insurance, a CAA-owned company, is seeing a lot of questions from policy holders who have plans to travel and are concerned about how this may affect the status of their travel insurance.
For those who have purchased or are planning to purchase travel insurance through CAA, Orion Travel Insurance will continue to uphold existing trip cancellation coverage and policy rules. This means, if you have or intend to purchase trip cancellation insurance prior to a Global Affairs Canada travel advisory 'to avoid all travel or non-essential travel', your coverage remains as it is today.
"Orion Travel Insurance will not be changing our policy to introduce Coronavirus related exclusions to trip cancellation insurance. Travellers with trip cancellation insurance will be reimbursed even if the federal government issues a coronavirus-related advisory to "avoid non-essential travel" to their destination after booking their trip," says Tony Tsai, vice president, communications and services, CAA South Central Ontario.
