IINM cancel for any reason isn't available in NY. It is available on some policies in most other states.
It definitely was available a few years ago. I used it.

Interesting. Most policies I've looked at didn't make cancel for any reason available in NY.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

That's a new thing I think, about a year ago or so depending on the insurance company

Some people might get blocked for other reasons - they’ve traveled to —-- recently and the destination country is no longer allowing visitors that were in ——- in the last 14 days. Or, you simply want to cancel your trip because you don’t think your trip to Venice is such a great idea anymore.
This.

Was wondering what the criteria would be for trip cancelation these days to places in Europe.

I think it's generally based on official advisories in the area. Beyond that I guess YMMV depending on how persistent you are.

Not sure. Maybe Ross Fire or something like that. Squaremouth makes it very easy to find.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

What happens if a doctor advises someone not to travel?

I don't have personal experience with this but I know in general, based on what I have heard from other people, doctor's notes do help.

I'm not talking specific to this virus though. Still, I think YMMV depending on your specific situation and how much patience you have.

A potential covered situation would be a quarantine imposed by a physician or governmental authority for health reasons. Still, we’ve confirmed with Chase’s Card Benefit Services that this would only apply if you’re actually infected with the virus — not if you’ve been quarantined out of precaution.

I would double check with the insurance company, though, as coverage may exclude 'pandemics'.

Traveling is less safe, and Israel may close down the border resulting in no flights home.
