Travelex Insurance Services states that in order to be eligible for coverage due to MERS virus, the insurance plan should be purchased prior to the event being foreseen (May 2, 2014). In the event the MERS virus causes an unforeseeable loss to occur after the effective date of the plan you have purchased, coverage may be considered in the following areas: Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption Coverage, Trip Delay Coverage, Emergency Medical Coverage, 24 Hour Travel Assistance Services, and Policy Transfer Options.
