  • Guard Against Extreme Weather With Trip Cancellation Insurance

    Filed Under: Blogging
Preparing for an international trip takes a lot of planning. You will research the right days to go, the right airline to fly on, the right hotel to stay in, and the best prices available. But for all your hard work during the course of planning, mother nature will always have the final say on whether your travel plans go off without a hitch. With that in mind, you will want to make sure you are always prepared with trip cancellation insurance.

Severe weather can strike anywhere at anytime. From hurricanes to blizzards, every region of the world has its own unique weather conditions that can wreak havoc on your travel schedule. And while you may be able to work your plans around some of the most common issues (for example, avoiding tropical areas during hurricane season), the volcanic eruption in Europe earlier this year is proof that atmospheric events you could never anticipate may derail your plans.

If one of these events causes you to miss a connection, you could suddenly be faced with unforeseen financial issues. For example, missing a connection could cause you to need to buy a new ticket for another flight, without getting any reimbursement on your old ticket. So you could be paying twice as much for one flight! Or if you miss a night's stay in a hotel you had booked because of travel delays, you will lose that money unless you are insured.

Trip cancellation insurance protects these investments, offering reimbursement on cancellations and delays that occur for a variety of reasons. Even non-refundable flights may be covered by your policy! The cost of a plan is quite inexpensive, especially compared to what you will invest for your flight, hotel, and any events you may be attending. Do not let extreme weather disturb your travel plans AND dip into your bank account; protect yourself with insurance.
