Cancel for Any Reason will allow you to cancel for any reason whatsoever as long as it is within the stated timeframe, usually two days prior to departure.
Travelers who purchase CFAR are eligible to receive up to 75% reimbursement of their trip cost. Choosing which option works best for you will give you protection and flexibility.

There are time-sensitive benefits you may want to take advantage of, like the Pre-existing Medical Conditions waiver.
If you buy insurance within the specified time frame from the initial deposit, usually two weeks, you will get broader coverage like the Pre-existing Medical Conditions waiver and other benefits, depending on the plan.
Don’t worry if you’re planning on buying travel insurance at the last minute, though – some plans allow you to buy coverage up until the day before you depart.
