If you have read including this blog, you will see that I have no problem telling you when you should or should not get trip cancellation travel insurance.

Is It Worth Buying Trip Insurance For a Domestic Flight (in the USA)? The answer depends on what kind of a trip are you taking:

Examples of why You Should or Should Not get Trip Cancellation Travel Insurance for your Domestic Flight:
Your airfare is part of a larger trip that has more prepaid trip costs and is invoiced all together. ie – Getting the airfare from the travel supplier to get to a cruise, tour or lodging, etc. Yes, get travel insurance if you don’t want to lose that money if you are forced to cancel or interrupt your trip. And, if you need pre-existing medical conditions coverage most plans require you to include this cost.
You made a mistake and bought the wrong plane ticket. You don’t want to pay the change fee to change the travel dates. No, don’t get travel insurance. Your mistake is not covered.
You bought a plane ticket in the last few days and now there’s bad weather forecast. You want someone else to pay your extra costs if your flight is cancelled or delayed. No, don’t get travel insurance. You won’t be covered. Read this to see what I mean: Do Callers Think We Were Born Yesterday?
