A North Carolina couple, both Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance clients, were preparing for a Uganda safari in six weeks when the wife became very ill. At her hospital, doctors diagnosed her with a severe kidney illness. Her doctors said she would not be able to make the trip.

Once the husband was sure his wife would recover, the he decided to go on the trip solo, and helped her file a claim for her non-refundable airline tickets as part of her Ripcord comprehensive insurance policy.

Ripcord reimbursed the couple for the full insured amount, approximately $8,000.
