Q. What is the pre-existing condition waiver and how can I qualify? A. If insurance is purchased within 14 days of making the initial Trip Payment, the Pre-Existing Medical Condition Exclusion will be waived. This is applicable to all coverages contained in the policy. You must be medically able to travel when plan cost is paid. In the event a claim is filed, the injury or illness must be substantiated to our Claims Department.

Q. Will I be covered if I cancel my Trip for any reason? A. Only certain unforeseen circumstances would be covered. A list of these circumstances is included in the Description of Coverage. When you purchase the Travel Protection Plan within 14 days of your initial deposit/payment for your Trip, you also receive the Viking River Cruises Cancellation Waiver Benefit that allows you to cancel your Viking River Cruises travel arrangements before your scheduled departure for ANY REASON.
