Should You Buy That Trip Insurance Policy?

You can buy peace of mind for your Lodgeur stay with a trip insurance policy from Generali.

After hosting thousands of guests and surviving a pandemic, Lodgeur heard nearly every reason imaginable for cancelling a trip on short notice. Life and messy and plans change. We’ve started offering trip insurance to help guests prepare for the unexpected.

Here’s what you should know about buying trip insurance:

Why do people need trip insurance?

Lodgeur’s guests have cancelled, interrupted or delayed their short term stay or extended stay for a variety of reasons over the years.

  • Patients traveling to Houston have medical treatment plans changed or delayed.
  • Guests have had to stay home when someone in their party becomes ill or is too injured to travel.
  • Severe weather events in Texas (hurricanes and winter storms) have also impacted guests’ travel plans. Some guests find their trip is extended, while others have their trip interrupted or delayed.

What does trip insurance cover?

Trip insurance policies are available to cover the cost of your Lodgeur booking for covered travelers who need to cancel their trip for a covered reason. This is commonly referred to as trip cancellation, trip delay or trip interruption.
