Travelling can be a mixed bag of experiences. While airline delays are not predictable, they can be planned for with flight delay and cancellation coverage.
Flight cancellation coverage
Because of bad weather conditions or adverse socio-political conditions in the destination, your flight might get cancelled. In such a situation, the flight cancellation coverage provided by the travel insurance plan will either arrange for another fight or compensate for the unused flight tickets.
In another instance, you might have to cancel the trip, because of ill health or a familial emergency. If you are covered by travel insurance, then the cost of the availed flight and hotel booking will be reimbursed. Thus the money you spent on making the arrangements mentioned above, won’t get wasted.
Flight delay coverage
Travel insurance plans also provide flight delay coverage. Bad weather or a technical glitch, may force a delay in takeoff upsetting your travel plans. There might be a connecting flight for the final destination, or you might have booked tickets for an opera show which may also be impacted.
With flight delay coverage, you stay guarded against such random and unprecedented deviations. Your travel insurance provider will arrange as well as pay for the alternative flight tickets. In case of a significant delay, following which you might have to make some unexpected additional expenses, flight delay coverage will reimburse such unplanned additional expenditures as well, such as an overnight hotel stay.
If things go south while being in transit, the cost of handling the adversities can burn a massive hole in your pocket and stress you up to the core. People usually consider “travel insurance” a luxury. Given the fact that there are a lot of uncertainties associated with travelling, travel insurance is a necessity that you must not leave home without!
