Does anyone know which agency (Orbitz, Expedia, etc.,) offers insurance in case a person has to cancel their plans? I booked with one of them a few years ago and they offered this insurance. I have to travel next month for a hearing and if there's a change I don't want to lose my money.
Thanks.

You are much better getting a policy From someone Indepentent of the arragements of your trip. Most of those plans do more to protect the one writting it then then one paying/getting it. I Chirs Elliot Elliott did a bunch of stories, You might want to check them out at : TRAVEL INSURANCE

The cost of travel insurance is most likely going to be higher than the change fee for your ticket. Some carriers offer a standalone flight insurance policy that you can select as part of the booking process for about $15, but read the fine print and make sure it will apply to your situation before accepting it.

Since it sound like it only the airfare that would be a issue going to a hearing. What is the cost to book a full Fare changeable ticket? Can you fly southwest, they have no change fee.
A cancel for any reason policy is VERY expensive, may be more then the change fee, or getting a fully refundable/changeable ticket.
