Cavalry reimburses $19K for canceled trip to Africa

Tanzania, Rwanda have to wait

A family of five Cavalry Elite Travel Insurance clients was preparing for a trip of a lifetime to Africa over the holidays: It was a tailor-made luxury tour of Tanzania and Rwanda, including a trip to Mt Kilimanjaro, and a memorable visit to a gorilla sanctuary.

About five months before departure, however, they had to cancel. This meant paying airline ticket cancellation penalties adding up to $19,000 in all, or 30% of the total airline costs they had insured with Cavalry.

As comprehensive travel insurance policyholders with Cavalry’s Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) option, they could have simply decided not to go, in which case they would have been eligible to receive 75% of the claim. But because the reason for their claim fell into one of the categories of a standard comprehensive travel insurance policy – which include illness, injury, a death in the family, certain business interruptions and many other reasons – Cavalry reimbursed them the full $19,000.

Cavalry combines the best medevac insurance with travel insurance benefits such as trip cancellation, trip interruption, lost baggage, primary medical expense coverages, and more. Cavalry is powered by Redpoint Resolutions, a medical and travel risk security company owned and operated by special operations veterans and physicians.

Redpoint covers almost 10 million people worldwide and has evacuated clients from all seven continents.
