  2. There has not been any change in medication, or any recommendation or starting of a new prescription drug, and

Reimbursement of the unused portion of your trip

Trip interruption insurance will reimburse the unused portion of your trip if it has already begun and an unexpected incident forces you to return home early. This post-departure benefit is particularly useful when booking expensive trips.

Trip Interruption Insurance is similar to Trip Cancellation Insurance, but the former covers insured travellers for unforeseen events that occur after a trip has begun, rather than before it starts.
