I am not certain that they are anywhere but Canada but, we have used very a company by the name of TravelGuard whenever we travel. Their rates are competitive and their service is excellent. You can get to them through any registered travel agent.

Ditto for TravelGuard: our travel agent (when we use her) buys that one herself.

It would help members give suggestions if you could tell us where you live. Not all companies cover all countries.

I am from the US and have use Travel Guard many times. They have a good website and you can customize your insurance plan. For myself I had older parents who weren't in the greatest of health and never knew when something would happen that could stop me from traveling. I don't remember being able to customize that kind of thing on line and think I had to call them but you should be able to come up with pretty much anything you want.

Do read what the different policies cover carefully though: most travel policies do not cover known, pre-exisiting conditions. This includes having to cancel your trip due to the illness of a family member with a pre-existing condition. If you're concerned about this type of event, you'll want to be cautious to buy a policy with that sort of coverage.
