Vacation Protection Plan

We understand that unforeseen circumstances may force you to cancel or interrupt your vacation plans. As your vacation package includes cancellation penalties, we highly recommend you purchase the Vacation Protection Plan. The Vacation Protection Plan must be purchased when paying your deposit.

Part A: Pre-Departure Cancellation Penalty Waiver - For just $45.00 USD per person ($65.00 per person for Mexico and Hawaii vacation packages), you may cancel for any reason up until four hours prior to departure and receive a full refund. Alaska Airlines Vacations must be properly notified of the cancellation, as the VPP does not apply to "No Show" situations. A No Show is defined as a failure to notify Alaska Airlines Vacations of a cancellation prior to four hours before departure. Note that the VPP does not cover revision fees nor additional per person occupancy rates that may occur if the number of travelers changes.

Part B: Post-Departure Travel Insurance - This part of the policy applies to covered reasons only, and goes into effect when you depart on your trip and includes the following features:

  • Trip Interruption - Covers unused land or water travel arrangements, plus additional airfare expense to return home, if you interrupt your trip due to sickness, injury or death of you, a Traveling Companion, or Immediate Family Member or for Other Covered Events as defined.

  • 24-Hour Hotline Help - The Travel Protection Plan includes a 24-hour help hotline for medical and travel related problems.
  • Accidental Death & Dismemberment - Covers up to $25,000 (USD) for a loss which occurs from a covered injury during your trip. Conditions and Limitations: Certain exclusions and limitations apply and are detailed in the Description of Coverage. For example, coverage does not apply to: any sickness or condition of you, a Traveling Companion or an Immediate Family Member traveling with you that existed during the 60 days prior to the effective date of the coverage (this exclusion is waived if your premium is received with your initial deposit/payment for your trip and you are not disabled from travel at the time you pay your premium), suicide, normal pregnancy, war or any act of war, mental or nervous disorders.
  • Other Covered Events, as defined, includes the following events or their consequences: Post-Departure Trip Interruption due to a cancellation of arrangements by an airline resulting from bad weather (coverage up to $100 (USD) per day to a maximum of $500 (USD)); a documented traffic accident while en route to departure; jury duty; destruction of your residence by a natural disaster; or a documented theft of passports or visas. A Traveling Companion is defined as a person booked to share accommodations in the same room with you during your trip. Sickness or Injury must require care by a Physician and must commence while the Travel Protection Plan is in force for you. This plan does not cover a loss that results from an illness, disease, or other condition (of you, an Immediate Family Member, Traveling Companion or Business Partner), event or circumstance, which occurs at a time when this policy is not in force for you.
