Five days before she was scheduled to fly to France for a luxury cycling tour of Burgundy, a California woman broke her foot, and was unable to make the trip.

She and her husband had made their initial deposit for the trip back in February, and were looking forward to a two-wheeled tour of the ancestral home of the Merlot grape, of the Dordogne Valley, and the medieval castles of southwestern France.

Unable to cycle with her broken foot, she and her husband filed a claim with Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance. As they both held a comprehensive travel insurance policy, Ripcord reimbursed them for their non-refundable $10,000 trip.
