If I add Additional Specified Items Cover to my multi-trip policy, will I have to specify my high-value items for each and every trip?
No – you’ll only need to specify the item once and it will be covered for all of your trips, regardless of how many you take during the year. You can continue to add specified items to your policy throughout the year. Once an item has been added, you won’t be able to remove it from your policy (even if you don’t take the item on subsequent trips).
I purchased my air ticket using my frequent flyer points but have been forced to cancel my flight – how will my claim be settled?
If the airline won’t refund your points, we’ll pay you the cost of an equivalent-class air ticket. If the airline refunds only a portion of your points, we’ll pay you the cost of an equivalent-class air ticket, minus the value of the refunded points.
