Don't Gamble With Your Travel Investment.
A luxurious vacation is a big investment – and you could lose that investment if you don’t protect it from:
- Unexpected cancellation: If one of the insureds, their spouse or domestic partner becomes pregnant or approved for an adoption, or extra days are added to your child’s school calendar unexpectedly, you could be forced to cancel your vacation – without guarantee of a refund.
- Medical emergencies: Medical treatment away from home can be complicated and costly – and almost always out-of-network.
- Travel delays: Getting stranded in an airport and missing flight connections is more than an inconvenience – it can be costly to catch up on your vacation plans.
- Lost luggage: Clothes, electronics, and more can vanish in an instant – and how will you recover what you need on vacation?
Luxury travel insurance from Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection is there to protect you when these issues, and many more strike – and with our 24/7 travel assistance, you’ll never be left stranded with no one to contact.

Luxury Travel Insurance Q&A
What does luxury travel insurance cover?
Our luxury travel insurance plan includes cancellation insurance for trips up to $100,000 per person, and our highest levels of medical expense and medical evacuation limits. LuxuryCare also includes trip interruption, trip delay, missed connection, and coverage for lost, damaged, or stolen luggage.* LuxuryCare’s medical coverage is primary in the base plan – which means no need to meet certain requirements or pay more for medical coverage to be primary.
Does LuxuryCare include Cancel For Any Reason?
Our luxury travel insurance plan includes the option to purchase the Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) coverage upgrade. Coverage includes up to 50% trip cancellation coverage for trips valued up to $10,000 per traveler. CFAR may only be added at the time of policy purchase and within 15 days of the initial trip deposit. All travelers must be medically able to travel at time of purchase and full trip cost must be insured. Trips must be cancelled no less than 48 hours prior to the departure date.
Can you buy luxury travel insurance after booking?
Yes – and if you buy within 15 days of making your initial vacation deposit, you qualify for bonus coverages, like coverage for pre-existing medical conditions and financial default.
How much does luxury travel insurance cost?
Luxury travel insurance can cost from 5% to 10% of your total trip cost, though that amount can be influenced by:
- Your age
- How much you’re spending on your trip
- Number of days you are vacationing
- When you are traveling
- Number of days until your departure
- The number of people covered under your policy
- Where you are going
As with any travel insurance, it pays to look around and compare to find the best luxury travel insurance policy for you.
Can trip insurance be worth it for a luxury vacation?
Absolutely – trip insurance can be worth it because it can help reimburse you for covered expenses like emergency evacuation, medical bills, and costs related to trip cancellation and interruption. The U.S. State Department includes travel insurance as a key component of its traveler’s checklist.
Do I need medical travel insurance while on a vacation?
A medical emergency away from home could mean thousands of dollars of bills that you have to pay. Travel medical insurance can help pay if you get sick or injured when you’re traveling, and can cover costs to evacuate you to an adequate medical facility.
Should I insure my luxury vacation?
Savvy travelers usually do. If you’re not sure, ask your travel professional, or someone who’s suffered mishaps while vacationing.
Is LuxuryCare right for me?
Is your vacation booked months out? Is your vacation payment protected if you’re forced to cancel for a covered reason? Do you have adequate coverage if a medical emergency occurs while you’re away from home? LuxuryCare may be your best travel insurance option.
