Are you rethinking your travel plans because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)?

Many companies are suspending service, canceling flights, and taking drastic action as a result of the disease.

For example, as of this writing, United Airlines is suspending all flights from the United States to Beijing, Chengdu, Hong Kong, and Shanghai through April 30, 2020.

If news of the disease has you worried, you might be able to reschedule or cancel the travel plans you made before the world first heard about it. Right now is a challenging time to travel the world because we don’t know which countries will implement travel restrictions next.

And while we don’t know what the full travel, health, or economic impact of this outbreak will be, there are actions you can take now to protect your travel plans.

Country-imposed travel restrictions will affect your cancellation and reimbursement options.
