If you had bought trip insurance with “cancel for any reason” or “cancel for work reason” or “cancel for medical” (listed in descending order of price) you would have the ability to cancel and get a refund from the insurance carrier for reasons meeting the criteria. Usually you have to purchase such insurance within 14 days of booking and not within 2 days of departure.

Slightly off topic but would the Chase sapphire reserve card trip insurance work here? Call them and say emergency can’t make it?

Either way, your committing fraud if you lie about your reason. That should be enough to give you pause

Need a doctors note / for Chase. Just eat it. And buy refundable next time. You'll get to get the balance less 150-200 change fee

This is what refundable tickets are for

People book flights 3 months in advance? Damn. Personal or booked via CWT?

I booked a hotel for vacation a few weeks ago, and I just saw the same room on a booking website about $50/night cheaper. I thought "wow what a great deal!" and cancelled my existing booking and rebooked on the other website.

Well it turns out that the other website was in USD and my original booking was in CAD, and instead of saving $50/night I ended up spending $75/night extra.

Moral of the story is, don't be dumb like me

Need some outside opinions - I’m on round 5 (final round is the 6th…) in an interview process and while the company has a good reputation and the role description is aligned with what I want, I have an uneasy feeling about the team. I feel like they are desperate to fill the role and have hinted that they have a ‘work hard’ environment. I’m not sure if I’m reading too much into it, but they seemed tired during the interviews and hardly cracked a smile.
