Trip Insurance for Hotel and short flight only

If the hotel and the flights to madeira from Lisbon total $3000 - can I have insurance for that only? Or do I need to include all hotel, flights etc?
thanks

You should insure only the non refundable costs of your trip that you would lose if you had to cancel or interrupt your trip due to illness, etc.

Check out squaremouth.com or insuremytrip.com for help with trip insurance.

Squaremouth explains "Cancellation Insurance" as follows:

Cancellation Insurance
Covers a traveler's vacation cost against cancellation and interruption. Travelers are reimbursed if they have to cancel or interrupt their travel. Policies usually include medical, lost or damaged property and travel delay coverage, medical evacuation and a number of other benefits.

You insure yourself against cancellation fees, change fees, potential airfare increase if you have to rebook, etc. You don't need to cover your entire airfare cost, as you can rebook a later flight if you can't take your trip. Include cost of last-minute cancellation of your hotel.
Look for options for covering -air -land -cruise etc. With the coverage I usually buy, I choose air and land, which is what covers hotel costs or train tickets, or prebooked tours, etc.
