I am looking for a travel insurance that will cover a trip cancellation for any reason. I am hoping to travel from usa to isreal.
Most (if not all) Cancel for Any Reason plans only give back a percentage of your trip cost, if it's not a covered reason.
EG: Allianz gives 80%, MH Ross and TravelSafe give 75%.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

If you are specifically looking for the Cancel for Any Reason benefit, I'd go with Allianz because it gives the extra 5% back. You may need to call to get the Cancel for Any Reason.

Otherwise MH Ross and TravelSafe are basically the same (they are underwritten by the same company, so the coverage is the same). I'd plug in your dates and info, and pick the cheaper one.  Bear in mind that they will only allow you to purchase Cancel For Any Reason within 15 days of purchasing your ticket.

There are other companies out there, but these are the ones I have experience with.

TravelX Allows up to 2 days before to purchase cancel for any reason

Does anyone know if there is a policy that will cover cancellation due to immigration problem? This will be award travel to israel ,

e.g. Visa to country may be denied, or Green card will expire in a few weeks and may not be approved for extension in time for travel

No Pregnancy is NEVER covered because you knew beforehand. Only Medical that happened suddenly is covered.
