Why trip delay insurance matters

Trip delay insurance is especially important when your travel plans are uncertain, as this type of insurance covers you when unexpected factors out of your control ends up resulting in a cancellation of your entire trip or a portion of your trip.

Let's imagine you're flying to Europe for a long vacation and a snowfall hits during your brief layover in Canada, causing your final journey to Europe to be postponed indefinitely. This is referred to as a trip delay, and having trip delay coverage will reimburse you for additional meal and hotel expenses incurred as a result of the delay up to the covered amount indicated in the policy documentation.

If you're expecting any hiccups with your flight or the weather, trip delay insurance can help ensure that you dont suffer financial repercussions. Its also designed to make sure you return home safely or rejoin your trip with minimal economic hardship. Best of all, trip delay insurance gives you the confidence and peace of mind you need to handle the unexpected.

  • COVID-19 coverage
