Here’s some important news if you’re planning a trip soon. It’s now easier to get cancellation insurance. It used to be that you had to buy it within a few days of putting the first deposit on your holiday. Now some leading travel insurers have changed the rules, and you can buy it up to a day before your departure. There’s a website called insuremytrip.ca that allows you to compare quotes. For instance, I got five quotes for a $2000 trip to the U.S. for a couple over 50. The cancellation insurance ranged from $102 to $146.
