APRIL Travel Protection has introduced a cancellation-only travel insurance plan. Starting at $2, APRIL Trip Cancellation covers 100 percent of trip costs in situations that include severe weather, natural disasters, injury, sickness, death, job loss or relocation, military duty, terrorism, strikes, stolen passport or visa and more.

Travelers can buy a Trip Interruption upgrade for protection in case some event not covered by the original policy forces them to end a vacation early. Policyholders can also choose the Cancellation for Any Reason upgrade, which allows travelers to receive a reimbursement no matter the reason. The policy cost begins at $2 for a $250 flight and can be affected by added travel components, the cost of the trip, age and more.

Like all APRIL policies, APRIL Trip Cancellation offers an instant settlement without the claims process for a range of events. Anyone who purchases the plan can cancel within 10 days for a full refund, as long no other travel expenses have been added and the covered trip has not begun.
