NBC affiliate WJAR in Ohio reported the story of a couple, married for 57 years, forced to cancel their cruise to New Zealand and Australia after the husband became ill and was diagnosed with cancer. Attempts to get refunds or transfer the cruise to someone else failed, except for the cruise line honoring the contract, which allowed for a 25% refund, according to WJAR. They could have gotten back most of their $19,000 trip cost, had they spent another $760 on travel insurance, WJAR reported. Their experience is an unfortunate example of the value of travel insurance. Unforeseen illness or injury is covered by the standard policy language in plans that include trip cancellation coverage. You never know what’s going to happen, and this couple never expected a cancer diagnose to cancel their trip of a lifetime. The cruise line’s 25% refund came just before the husband died.
