In October I booked a Christmas trip to New York City through Expedia that was to be a surprise for my wife and, due to the cost of the trip, I purchased the "travel protection" insurance plan which was offered through AIG. Within a week of booking the vacation I learned that I would not be able to take off work during the scheduled time of the trip so I cancelled my flight and hotel reservations. I also filed a claim with AIG. AIG has rejected my claim twice, stating that cancellations due to job conflicts are not covered - I have also reached out to the hotel that was booked as well as Expedia but have received no response. I could understand not refunding my money if I had cancelled a week or two before the trip but I cancelled almost two months in advance, allowing more than enough time for my flight and hotel reservations to be purchased by someone else. Now I am out around $2500 right at Christmas time. I would like Expedia to refund my money and do a better job of clarifying what is and is not covered by their "Travel Protection Policy".
