In addition to the one-year job trigger for Job Loss coverage, Travel Insured’s Cancel For Any Reason package allows an Insured or their Traveling Companion to cancel their trip due to a documented work conflict; because their company has been made unsuitable to do business due to a natural disaster, vandalism or burglary; because their company is involved in an acquisition in which the insured is directly involved; or for a job relocation of 250 miles or more.  Travel Insured reimburses a covered Trip Cancellation under Job Loss Protection with a cash refund up to the full trip cost .
