Why you should purchase Travel Protection
If your Trip is Canceled or Interrupted, Your Travel Investment is Protected
If you are like a lot of people these days, you don't just look forward to your vacations, you need them. A vacation is your opportunity to rest, relax, and recharge your batteries. Or to catch up with friends and family. Unfortunately, many things happen that might cause you to cancel your travel plans or cut them short. Illness or injury. The death of a family member. The worst part is, without adequate protection, you can lose your travel investment. The AAA Exclusive Vacations Travel Protection Plan protects your travel investment if your trip is canceled or interrupted for a covered reason such as injury, illness or death of you, an immediate family member, or a traveling companion, business partner or due to a Terrorist Act.

If you must interrupt your trip or return home early for a covered reason, the plan will pay (up to the original cost of your trip) for your unused land or water travel arrangements, less any refund paid or payable, plus the additional air expense to return home or rejoin your trip. 
Medical Expense and Emergency Assistance Benefits Could Be a Real Lifesaver!
If you have a serious illness or injury, the last thing you want to worry about is getting the care you need. The AAA Exclusive Vacations Travel Protection Plan gives you peace of mind with benefits that cover, up to the plan's limits, everything from medical expenses (incurred within one year of a sickness or injury that began during your trip) to special transportation (such as an air ambulance) required for medical reasons.
Travel Delayed? You're OK!
You’ll be reimbursed up to $100 per day (to a maximum of $500 total) for meals and accommodations if your trip is delayed for more than 12 hours for a covered reason.
Baggage Lost or Damaged? You're Protected!
It’s a traveler’s nightmare. You arrive at your destination, but your baggage has disappeared. Or has been stolen or damaged. What do you do? If you’re protected by the AAA Exclusive Vacations Travel Protection Plan, you’ll be reimbursed up to $1,000 to replace or repair your lost or damaged luggage and personal articles.
Baggage Delayed? Need Clothes and Toiletries? Count on us!
The AAA Exclusive Vacations Travel Protection Plan reimburses you up to $100 to help cover the cost of clothing, toiletries and/or personal items if your baggage is delayed for more than 24 hours while you are on your trip.
