A family totally prepays a tour package to Orlando, Florida which includes return flights, hotel accommodation and day passes to a theme resort; total cost: $12,000. Two days before their departure date, the father was hospitalized following a car accident.

Since the trip was only cancelled two days prior to departure, the cancellation charge by the tour operator was 100% of the holiday cost. In preparation for their trip they purchased Travel Insurance Trip Cancellation and Interruption Package insurance – the total insured amount was refunded including the cost of the theme resort day passes.
