A safari has to wait

A Ripcord Rescue Travel insurance client was preparing for a trip to Africa with his father when they received some bad news. About two months before they were set to depart, the father experienced a medical emergency, and his physician advised against going on the safari.

Both the father and son were covered under a single comprehensive travel insurance policy with Ripcord. They filed a trip cancellation claim for the non-refundable portion of their airline tickets, and Ripcord reimbursed them the full amount of $1,100.
