Section A Excess as per Schedule

Cancellation After Arrival at Destination

If the Event is cancelled or curtailed for reasons that are entirely out of your control; and not as a result of your own actions; and if the event is cancelled or postponed until after your pre-booked return date (and you have written confirmation from the organisers or promotors, or other officials that the event is cancelled):


You will be covered up to the amount shown in your Schedule for any irrecoverable unused travel, accommodation (including excursions), special event ticket costs and other pre-paid charges which you have paid, together with any additional travel expenses incurred if cancellation of the trip is necessary and unavoidable because the event was cancelled by the organisers.


If the special event is cancelled after you have started your outbound journey or it is postponed until after your booked turn date you will be covered for up to 50% of travel costs and up to 7 days accommodation costs.
