What does it cost?
The cost of travel insurance is 7% of the booking total which is about $70 for a $1,000 booking.
How do guests buy it?
We have this service deeply integrated into OwnerRez. If travel insurance is turned on for your properties, the guest will be asked if they want to buy it during the quote acceptance process. They can do so very easily and the billing and policy process is done under the covers directly between OwnerRez and Travel Guard.
You can see if the guest purchased travel insurance by opening their booking and clicking on the Insurance tab. You can also, from that same spot, purchase it on their behalf or send them a link where they can add it to their booking.
How does a customer for a cancelled booking obtain a refund of the trip protection coverage if it was not used. Booking # ORB2528229
Will be interested to see ORs answer on this. Would seem that insurance is non-refundable if they're the ones who canceled. (I'm assuming this is a Covid-19 cancellation, but maybe not.)

Randy, there are no cancellations for travel insurance. That's the whole point of travel insurance - to cover cancellations and trip interruptions. If the booking is made in mistake and cancelled right away, the carrier will typically refund the TI if it is cancelled very quickly (ie. right after purchased). But the traveler can't decided to cancel later and then also get TI refunded - that would defeat the purpose.
