H.I.S. and Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company have jointly started selling ‘H.I.S. Cancellation Support,’ which is special contract insurance for Japanese overseas travelers to be forced to cancel travels for inevitable reasons. The new product is expected to encourage a traveler to make an early booking without a concern about cancellation fee.
In addition to conventional conditions, such as death or hospitalization of an applying traveler or family members, the new product covers compensations for two or longer hours delay of public transportation, invalid passport, pregnant or childbirth for women or even death of pets, for instance.
